I have the rear portion of that cultivator that I purchased at the Conn. Show where club members had a gathering. I was right there when it was unloaded and bought it for $40.00. I felt pretty lucky. After buying it, other members had said they would have bought it. So I guess I was lucky to get it. There are different pieces that attach to it. Some have a spring tooth and some have a straight shank with a blade/cultivator on the end. In my opinion the price of $150-175 seemed a little high, but if you really want it and cant find it then it might be worth it. You have to base that decision on how available they are, how badly you want it, etc. I hope this helps you, Al

I looked at the same unit.I thought it was high priced so I left it there. Did anybody pick up the trailer with the pipes on it for the blower system? I was going to get it but I did'nt know how I was going to get it back I did not have any tools along to take the pipes off to fit in the truck.The price was good at $20 the box needed work but the tires were good and the frame was in good shape.All I came back with was 2 funnels.Bob

The same guy had the dump cart for $150. Too rich for me. I bought a similar cultivator for $5 at an auction last year. Gonna raise the center shovels and use the outer ones only to make seed furrows this weekend after I till one more time if it is dried out enough.

That's a pretty neat looking cultivator. Do you know if it's something someone put together, or was it manufactured for a particular tractor? Steve

I believe it is part of an AC cultivator. I made the hitch for it. I used it this morning to make seed rows by removing the 3 center shovels. Goodbye to the days of driving stakes, stretching strings and using a hoe to make the furrows. What do you think?

The kids and I planted most of the garden today. A few things we are gonna wait on. Just used a hoe to cover, although I did consider using the belly grader blade. Brent
