Cute little Cultivator

Postby leerenovations » Mon Feb 24, 2014 11:12 pm

I was at one of the local antique stores last weekend and found a cute little cultivator in real good shape. The tag on it says its a David Bradley cultivator. Im guessing it was for one of their walk behinds. And for the price of $20, I carried it home. I widened it to its widest spacing and it works great behind my Cub. Since Cub cultivators are scarce in my woods, this will do. I just have to fabricate a lift system or some kind of lever to control the guage/ transport wheels from the seat. The one I bought looks just like it came out of the store brand new.

And where are the pictures? I like to see pictures! Good luck on the fabrication of a lift system. Papa's Cub, aka Tom.

You should get a David Bradley 2 wheeler to pull it, one of the best made, most useful pieces of equipment I have.T.J. :D

Yes, you should. A friend of mine has a restored one he would sell. Sorry to say I don't have a picture. He went with me when I bought this Cushman and fell in love with the David Bradley and bought it. They were both restored by him and both are better than new.

I have 3 different makes of 2 wheeled walk behind tractors with assorted attachments. No David Bradly. I find the plow the most useful implement to use behind the 2 wheeled tractor. 2 wheeled tractor and plow works great for small garden plots. Other implements are just to difficult to manage or I have other more practical methods of accomplishing the task.

I have modified, usually just the hitch, disk harrows and peg toothed harrows to work behind Cub Cadets.

I have a cultivator for 2 wheeled garden tractors, Have never used it. Easier to run the rear tine tiller down the garden rows.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Yes but you are all missing the whole idea. I AM LAZY. Thats why I will only own a four wheeled tractor. If I can find any way around the actual physical side of work, i am all for it.

my "L" model gravely is an amazing machine for 7 hp . I have cut grass sitting on that sulky for about 20 years , and made many gardens with the rotory plow . since I started cubbing , the gravely's been left silent and forlorn . she will beat you to death , a young mans machine . I still love it and will hang on to her. :D coppersmythe.............................

When the plants are tiny and hard to tell from the weeds you can't beat a walk behind. I like riding don't get me wrong but the eyes ain't what they used to be and the closer I can get to the plants the better when they are starting to pop thru.:)
