Jockey Arch

K, seeing as I am in the learnin mode, :roll:

Can someone tell me exactly what a Jockey Arch is used for :?: The Cub-144 Cultivator has one. It appears to be used to stiffen the rear tool bars for work in really heavy soil. Is that correct?

Thanks

The arch is a way for the rear bars to provide some lateral support to each other. It isn't seen very often. They typically were used with the longer rear bars that carried multiple standrads.

Thanks Jim. I figured if anybody know you did... they seem pretty rare. No one in this neck of the woods has ever seen one from what I can tell.

As I recall, the 2 row cultivators we had for our H & M had an arch on the rear arms.

On most of the 2+ row cultivators, the jockey arch provided the place to attach the pressure rod for the center section. So it was pretty common on the bigger tractors.
