I'm referring to the V shaped one. How well does it work? Does it clear the crops? It looks like it should work well... I just don't think the sleeve hitch arm would clear the crops

I have two that I use.  One has the David Bradley shovels on it, and the other has the narrower points I use more for tearing the ground up.  If you can find some old horse drawn cultivator sweeps or shovels, they will bolt right on the round shanks.  Need about 1/3 overlap to be sure you cover the whole area.  I use the sleeve hitch mounted in the bottom hole to raise it up.  If the tractor clears so will the cultivator.

You can use them until the crops are a couple inches higher than clearance.
:ditto: on the sweeps making a difference
the OEM sweeps are OK if used regularly. also, I would suggest adding some weight on the back of the cultivator.

BTW, you will be playing with the length of the sweeps to get them all working together.

Add weight to cultivator. And I did our sweet corn till it was about 12 to 15 inches with no problems. And yes to get the sweeps set right will take days lol. Glad I only use mine oOn the 140
