GT Talk member MAV sent me message letting me know about a Brinly Cultivator and single gang disc that were on craigslist and not to far away from me. (I hadn't looked at craigslist for a few days)

So I call the guy up and he was only 8 miles or so from my house. He was asking $75 each for them. I ended up getting them for $60 each. They have had a new coat of paint slapped on, but are very solid.

And Now for the pictures.

Good score. I think our tractors should have mated. Mine was all rusty on the front. LOL

Thats a nice find.
I like the design/flexibility of the cultivator.

I found a manual online and combined it into a PDF and have posted it in the manuals section.

Very nice attachments Chuck. You got them for a great price too. I wouldn't mind finding a disc sometime in the near future.

Good stuff Chuck, I'd like to get a set of discs myself some day. My cultivator doesn't look as nice as yours.

Those tines would be good to tear up ground for a blade. Look pretty stout.

I am going to make a set of gauge wheels for the cultivator and maybe get some different sweeps for it.

Got a chance to use the disc and cultivator some over the weekend. Ran into a few snags, but think they will be good to have around.

Snag #1, ground was to wet to be working with.
Snag# 2, the sleeve hitch on my Ford doesn’t float, so if lowered to far it would take weight off the rear wheels

Those are the major snags. The cultivator worked almost like a chisel plow. The disc, since it was wet wouldn’t cut very deep even with 125lbs of weight on it, I think if it was dryer and the disc was able to float it would work better.
