Cultivator age

Postby yellercub » Wed Jan 23, 2019 8:43 pm

I have a set of spring tooth cultivators that are painted white and black, which I am supposing suggest mid 1960s on, however the clevis on the mounting unit has no lock nut, suggesting an earlier time period. I believe the 1955 144 manual shows the clevis lock nut and the 1950 manual does not. Did the later cultivators still use the none lock nut clevis , or do I have a repainted cultivator? So far in my clean up I can't find evidence of any other colors or repainting.

Your's look earlier, the clevis is longer than the one with the nut. I think the rod is tapered on the earlier ones instead of the same size on the later ones.

Here's a photo showing the difference of some I have.

The rear sections I have broke gown to clean and repair. They, where clean enough to see, appear a gun metal blue/black, same as the toolbar etc. on the fronts.

So then, up to what year were these made and what about the white and black color, original?

the 1st type were all blue, in the early 50's the frame was red and the tool bars and tools blue, when the square nose came out they became all white with the tools black, the later style cultivator came about in the early 50's also, other changes were the spring arms if you have a fast hitch

Dumb thought.....you don't think these could have been on a 1950 white demo cub?

OK, thanks. Now I will have to decide what color I am going to paint them, after I clean them up.It isn't that important as I am going to put them to work and not for show. I would paint them to the original colors just for grins and giggles, which I assume would be red and blue? I guess there is no chance this style of cultivator was ever actually white and black? I am going to mount them on my yellow and white 1970 cub so white and black would be appropriate, but I am getting a bit bored painting everything yellow and white.

Painting them "freshly-cut grass green and perfect-for-harvest corn yellow" should end your boredom.
