Found this cultivator(?) today at a yard sale for $25.  It doesn't have any writing on it that I can find.  The handles are bent and the width is adjustable.  Would like to know who made it, what year, and do you think it can be converted to work with my tractor or just leave it as yard art?

I personally would leave it as yard art, BUT it can be converted to a sleeve hitch if you really wanted. Lose all the upper frame work and bolt  a sleeve hitch right to the front arm.

Just curious, is it missing a fifth shovel in the middle at the rear? Doesn't seem efficient the way it is set up. Neat yard art or useful with the modification mentioned above..... cool find.

Do you remember who made it or have any pictures of him using it?  That would be neat to see!

As mentioned I was thinking a later horse drawn type. No reason it couldn't be converted Mark, but like you, I think it would be pretty neat to find out it's background.

 

btw: for 25, there's no way I would have left without it either........nice grab  :thumbs:

No and no. That was a long time ago, sometime in the 1940's

I don't know if it's missing for sure or if it never had one before but it does look like a shovel would bolt on at the rear like you said.
