I tried cultivating for the first time with the DB last night and it works pretty good even though I dug up 2 potatoes  lol. The sweeps are worn so much ( I should have taken pictures )  mine look like these , single bolt holding them on .The other cultivator has the adjustable shank with 2 bolts holding the sweep on . Besides used has anyone bought new ones that will work on these shanks ? I would think it will be easier to find one for the adjustable one but the nonadjustable it would have to have the angle pretty close to  start

on the older round rod shank, nothing else will fit right. On the ones for the southern, which are adjustable, you need to find shovel that fit a front mounted tractor vator, not one from a field cultivator, which lay back to far. You could also go with just the plain steels. Although there not as wide you can set them closer together and add a couple more to cover the distance.

  I don't know the difference between those two . I don't think Tractor Supply carries the sweeps . We used to have a store about 25 miles away , think it was called " Farm & Family"  but pretty sure TS bought them out . I tried online line but there are sooo many to chose from , On the straight shank ones I wonder if ones I saw online that had a single bolt could be attached and bent to the correct angle ?  Or the shanks themselves heated and bent ?

I might try to modify one of them or a pair, but not any more than that until I was sure what effect the heat and reshape would have.

What if, you replaced the round bars, bent to work with whatever you could find reasonable sweeps.
I wonder if you would have to heat treat the bar after forming and drilling the hole.

I bet I could bend the round bars on a press without heating them , maybe just above were the sweep attaches .  I wish there was a good farm store near me . Might be a good reason for a road trip to my sister's in Lancaster Pa . Much more farm/tractors places there .

Have you tried Agrisupply online. They have a bunch of points and sweeps.

I was looking at ones Agrisupply   if tuff trying to decide which would work the best by the pictures , I would hate to spend money on one style and find out that a different one would work better with the DB shanks .

I was looking through some of the extra cultivator parts from the Tri-Trac .There was 2 extra sweeps that fit the round shanks of the walkbehind then used 2 from the Sears rectangular  4 wheel frame that I had gotten at a swap-meet
