Gents,

 

I picked this up this weekend, and would like to identify it so that I have a better chance to find some instructions or attachments.

 

I looks like the lower end of the x bracing loosen up to allow the handle bars to spread to facilitate straddling the crop row. 

 

I looked for a forum that would be a better place to post this, and am open to suggestions. 

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

 

Doug

Don't know who made it but i do know it's cool, I think the handle bar's adjust to accept the plow and sub-soiler between the toolbar's

Neat looking machine.  Would take some arm power to use it though.  Better as a show piece than a user I would think.

Who said lightening does not strike twice?  I came across a local craigslist ad for the same cultivator, and the name is clearly stamped into the frame (the paint is very thick on mine).  This is a cultivator made by the "New Bacon Mfg Co., Detroit, Mich."  In doing a search with various combinations of the name, I found there was a "Bacon Mfg" in the Detroit area around the turn of the century.  I also found an ad in the 1946 Popular Science magazine for the cultivator that shows (kind of) the attachments, and lists the price of $12.95. 

 

I would have pasted some urls, but I can't seem to paste anything here anymore. 

 

Fwiw. 

 

My intention is to use my cultivator in the garden for weeding between the rows.  The frame splits, so I will need to make a longer axle to move the wheels outside the frame, which will enable me to straddle the row and cultivate on each side at the same time.  I figure I will need to make some sweeps of different lengths as well, and perhaps a plow of the mirror image of the one I have. 

 

Regards,

 

Doug
