Can anyone id this Cultivator?

Recommended Posts

Visited the scap yard, what a sad site. Two sweepsters were in the pile to get hauled to the crusher... I just couldn't figure out a use for them so I passed them up. Anyone local might have a chance at them in the morning... Anyway, I did buy a cultivator & plow for a few bucks. I was wondering if anyone's seen a similar cultivator. I can't quite figure how the handle raises/lowers the back half, an weather I missing some parts. hmm says HTML is off, the pic link may not work, ( how do I turn it on?!) <p> Thanks -Rick

They both look like attachments for VB walking tractors. However, the cultivator appears to have had some modifications because the center piece behind the first drawbar should have a crank handle. The one I have has double drawbars, but with wheels. Those cultivator plows do look interesting, I keep them if I were you. That's about all I know. James

I agree with James. Check this out. http://www.simpletractors.com/walkers/cultivator.htm Try and get the Sweepster, it's a very versatile attachment. I use mine year round. http://www.simpletractors.com/models/300_series/sweeper.htm

that makes some sense... On the front arm are two stands without a blade, but a theaded hole- that's where the wheels musta went (I was thinking they were skid plates or such) there are 4 blades (one is just standing in front of the wheel holder) three have the 's' curve and one is sorta straight. all look pretty original though. The plow/cultivator were pretty separated, don't think they were from the same lot. The plow had a brinly hitch with, kinda looks like bolens hitch to me. I guess this cultivator model just had up/down adusts, the depth could be adjusted on the individual blades... No room for the sweepster, no snow, no paved drive, and I certainly don't have a fine enough lawn to use it on. Now, if you can figure a way for it to kill gophers, that'd be another story!

        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
