Cultivator

I picked up a 4 B-series shovel cultivator at an AC show the other day. I may have paid to much ($50.00) but I have only seen 2. I need to get a digital camera. What do you guys think. It is in pretty good shape and has new shovels. It is missing the skid shoes. Any body have any? It is like this attached URL. http://www.simpletractors.com/attachments/cultivator_specs.htm Thanks Ryan

Ryan, If it's Manufacturer number 398 (990398), or 699 (990699) you can get the parts list from the Simplicity Publications Department, link is on this website. The "Duck Feet" are sweeps and do work well for going in between rows, lifts the soil enough to uproot weeds but doesn't cause soil turn over onto your plants. This Cultivator actually has two sections, the other section hooks to the front axle and rides underneath your feet like the Grader Blade does. On the front section is narrower teeth which rip into the soil quite well and two wider hoe's which I'm told work good for potatoes. I actually put the narrower teeth onto my back Tool Bar and was able to get about 5 inches of till depth with turf tires, had to keep down pressure on my manual lift but it worked very well. I would guess $50.00 to be about right as that's about the average of the two I have. MadMike

I think that $25 is fair I have missed out on 2 sets this summer on was $175 and the other I didn't get to see a price.. The one for $175 didn't sell as far as I know.... I still would like to have a full set of cultivators...

Another thing you may want to look for is a Spring Tooth Cultivator. They don't dig in real well but if you slid the teeth close together it becomes a narrow York Rake, more or less. This worked great for getting grass clods out of my garden this year. MadMike

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
