After reading the thread on how to set up a plow, I got an idea on how to easily get my cultivator adjusted. I will be using this mainly for laying out rows in the garden, so I decided to set it for 2" depth. I laid a sheet of 1/2" plywood on the driveway, laid two 2x10's on top of it, then drove the tractor up on them. I then loosened all the adjusting wedges on the cultivator, set the hitch so the cultivator frame was level to the ground, then re-tightened the wedges, making sure each shank was pointed straight ahead. I had some how lost one of the wedges a while ago, but I had a piece of steel left over from another project, so I traced one of the originals onto it, and cut a new one ( and a couple more for spares)
