Cub 3 Field Cultivator Parts and Use

Postby DeVylder21 » Thu Dec 17, 2020 1:16 pm

Anyone have a source for parts for a cub 3 field cultivator? Specifically tooth and helper spring setup? I'm looking at buying one, but it's missing some.

Also, when in field prep is this used? I have a 193 plow and 38 harrow. Would it be plow, harrow, cultivator in the spring? Is it even worth buying (other than just to have more cool cub stuff)?

It would be cool to have one. Try JP tractor salvage, one of the site sponsors for parts for it. They are easy to deal with and ship fairly reasonably.

They are for long rows more or less, you might want to find a nice set of 144 belly mounted cultivators though. They are more suited for cultivating short single row crops like corn. But also can be used to mount hillers if you might want to grow potatoes.

welcome to the site--looks like you are north of us in NH.

I have one. Luckily I do not need parts. I would say JP or Burtch Tractors in NC. I know Burtch has LOTS of Cub parts.

It can be used to help level or pull under light crops as well. I didn't realize people used it to cultivate rows. I would need to space my times out different if I were to do that as there equally spaced.

^ yes...I can see it being used to level or pull light crops under. There's more practical uses for it.

A friend of mine bought a Cub just to keep at his aunts and it came with 144 cultivators and he has no use for them btw. He is in Swansea MA...just saying. He bought the Cub for cheap money and he'd sell them if you want cultivators.

Not normally used in field preperation. Used after the row crop seeds are planted and growing, reducing weeds, sometimes closing cracks in soil to preserve soil moisture.

Worth buying one. Depends on your intended usage.

If I was about 400 miles closer I'd be interested! :lol:

Harvester's catalog says: "designed for mulching the soil, and for removing quack and other noxious grasses." I find this type tool helpful for stirring up the soil and ripping out small/medium weeds when the soil itself doesn't need any more breaking down (as a disk would do).

I wouldn't use it to cultivate row crops.

Used similiar implements, spring toothee harrows, in Iowa to cut down weeds in corn rows before the corn got to be about 6" tall.

There were two different tine set-ups used. Early ones had a double tine. where the tine that held the sweep was supported by a backing tine. Later ones had just the single tine, which was a bit more substantial. I have 2 or 3 of the single tines that could be available, see what and how many you need. Your post says "tooth and helper spring" which makes me think it may be the earlier style,,,
