I have this cultivator standard and haven't been able to identify what brand machine it fits. I think I got it in a large lot of misc. parts. The closest thing I have seen pictures of was possibly for an "endless tread" but thought the color was more of a bolens green but none of the Bolen's I have seen used this configuration. 

 

 

Thank you for any suggestions.

I think it was actually made by Planet Jr and could hav been used on a variety of equipment. It might even be P-Jr green.

Thanks guys. That's interesting. Yesterday I ran a search on Planet JR but didn't come up with anything. What seemed odd to me was that it was cast-iron and mounted with a bolt on top. I've seen the Bolens cultivators with a "top mount" standard but most appeared to be steel with an adjustment for pitch. I did now after the suggestions, find a few pics of some older Bolens cultivators with what look like they could be the same standards.

Was apparently used by several different manufacturers.

A lot of these implements were originally made for the push hoe and adapted to other uses. Here is a pic I robbed that sort of shows them. I think these stems are a little different but the same mounting. I don't think there were many manufacturers making their own implements. More just adapting them to fit their drawbars.

if the tooling is original PJ stuff that cast part will the number U-9 on it. There are a lot of makers out there that used PJ styled tooling.

As the patents were all up on these by the 40 and 50's they really could have been made by any number of places. I don't know if PJ sold number/name deleted stuff or not. The tooling for the wheel hoes uses a different set of numbers than the tractor ones. Tractor ones are generally made a little bit heavier duty and in the case of weed hoes, the cutting blades are longer. The PJ catalogs show 100's of tools like steels, sweeps, hillers, weed hoes and such, that would work with horse draw, push hoes and tractor powered units.
