Sources for toolbar and cultivator parts, clamps, etc. don't seem obvious. Years ago another farmer told me "Try Ferguson, they're the only name I know." And I do know their 3-pt cultivator frames, but I couldn't find them on the internet at all. However, a few days ago I stumbled across their website on another forum: http://www.fergusonmfgco.com/products.htm
! Maybe you all know of the company already, but I'm excited to find that they still exist after all.
Anybody have experience with them? They sell a wedge bolt clamp to fit cub toolbars (under "accessories") -- maybe it's better than the one from Agrisupply, which people said is cheap from China and doesn't fit right?
In case people are interested, here are other sources I've found:
-- They have all manner of clamps, including wedge bolts, and they seem good for vegetable cultivation tools like spring tooth tines with round standards, spring-trip standards, disk hillers, etc. Probably it's still better to buy old cub cultivator parts, but I'm happy to see a source for them new.
CFC Distributors, http://www.cfcdist.com/products.php
(printable catalog) and http://www.cfcdist.com/shopping/
(web-based catalog) -- they seem good for field cultivator tines, s-tines/danish tines, and clamps for them, and have all manner of shovels/points/sweeps.
Buckeye Tractor Co, http://www.buctraco.com/index.html
-- they've made up all sorts of toolbar-based tractor implements, and presumably sell all the parts, though prices for individual pieces seem steeper than elsewhere. They have some neat stuff though, good to look at for inspiration. They seem to be the midwest's version of Rainflo, Nolt's, Martin's, and Market Farm, the PA vegetable-implement sellers.
Anybody have other good sources to pass on?
BTW I haven't actually ordered many of these things, and have no connection to these companies.
