Cultivators

Postby Boss Hog » Thu Jan 24, 2013 6:49 pm

I see a lot of cultivators that are not up to par, I intend to do a post on them with pics to let people know what to look for when buying sets of cultivators and shanks.
I will show the difference between the old and late model sets as well as the different lift springs.
Also the different type shanks.
Image
These are spring trips The short shank goes in the front on the short toolbars
the Long on the back, It is not as important on a cub as a SA - 140
Image
This is an older style shank I do not like this kind
Image
This is a friction shank not the best chose if you have rocks
Image
This is a spring shank
As well as how to tell if the shank is still adjustable.
Image
As you can see here This is the adjustment bolt to change the angle of the foot
Image
This one is un-adjustable Rusted beyond repair You really need to watch out with rusty cultivators
Image
This is the plate from the factory that helps to hold the foot on correctly
Image
This is how a lot of them are
Image

This has little or no adjustment left to tighten it up
Image
This one has some adjustment left
Image
This is a later set see the lock nut
Image
This is the early style not as strong
Image
Image
Make sure that the proper square head bolts are in the tool bars and the short tool bars it is very hard to make adjustments when they have the hex head bolts as they often turn instead of holding as they should
Image
This cuff is in bad condition , threads not good on the wedge [ $30 for a new one ]
Image
Image
This set of fronts has the fast hitch lift spring rod. This is also a high dollar set of cultivators
a complete set like these will fetch upwards of $550 and will be a deal at that price.
There is a wide range on prices of cultivators Just because they are complete does not mean they are worth $400 to $500. Many are $200 to $250 ones and some are not worth that.
Image
Image
Image
Watch out for welds They often do not hold up under use.
Image
Just a pic of the different front lift rods
Image
Image
The one with the hook on the end is a later model than the one on the far side.
However they are in the parts book at the same time but have the same part # strange Uh
that is in CB1-3 I am not sure when they came out. But are much nicer and don't rub on the steering shaft or coil
Image
Rear lift springs
The black one is for a fast hitch [ smaller hole diameter] the red one is for a standard cub [ larger diameter ]
I will get some more pics soon

Look forward to it Boss...I picked up a partial set this summer that's been sitting outside for years. Not sure if they'll be salvagable or not, I've had them soaking in oil for months. Going to try to pick up the missing parts here and there this spring and hopefully be able to make use of 'em this summer.

David:

I know that sweeps etc., are more popular down south, but will you be including the spring tips for us up here in the more northern climes? And same with the guards, hillers and other accessories for the 144, 252 etc.,?

I will be looking forward to the thread as well. A cultivator seminar on line -- how cool can that be :?: :D

David,

Great idea. I'd love to see some actually show what a complete set of cultivators are. So many are listed as such and are missing numerous parts.

You're right Chis. I can't get enough iron to play in the dirt!! Also, thanks for the countdown. It bothers me when someone lists "complete set" of cultivators and there are no cuffs, half the shanks needed are missing, no lift arms, etc.... Barnyard is listing a complete set, many times this is not the case.

boss,
I think this is a great idea, for someone like me that has no idea of what a complete set would look like.
thank you

Keep in mind that mine is not listed as a "Complete" set. There are several things not there, such as the shields, jockey arch, etc. It also has a bad shovel which I pointed out. I may now have another problem with it which I wasn't aware of. That will be checked today. If the problem is as expected I will post a pic here so it can be used as another example of what to look for.

I like to let a potential buyer know of any known problems, but I am no expert so I don't know everything to look for. I think an all inclusive article on cultivators will help buyers as well as sellers know what to look for.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
