Hi. I'm Ted from Everything Attachments and we're here today with our second design of cultivators for the garden. This normally will have six tines on it and you'll have good pictures of it. When you're cultivating your garden, you've got three different holes for each different tine where you can get your spacing correct. You want to be far enough away from the roots of your plants, but yet be able to take up your tread path and everything beside of it to loosen the ground up, get the weeds up, let the moisture go into the ground and keep your crops cultivated so that it will just produce more and produce longer.
On this design here, we've added this rounded design to give your plants, as they get taller, give them more area to be brought through here without being damaged. This continues back about six or eight inches. It also has four bolt holes here - two here and two here - which bolt on this furrowing attachment so that before or after you cultivate you can lay off your rows to put your seed in, or after you bed.
This is a pretty unique cultivator. You can do three things with it. You can cultivate your garden after it's up. You can bed your garden before you plant it and you can use your furrowing attachment to put the V's in your rows and so forth, to make your planting and everything easier. One of the best things about this three in one tool is, if you're limited on space for storing it, instead of having three separate tools, you can just have the one tool and store it in a much smaller space if you're trying to put it in a storage shed or something like that.
We've rounded all the edges. We've made it neat and clean. It's a Category 1 hitch. We've put the better bar on the back of it. This is an inch and 3/8 solid square bar. The reason it's expensive is because it's solid. It's heavy. That one bar weighs about 35 pounds. But with all the torque of this bedding disc, if you don't put a solid bar on it, it will just collapse because of the way they're held on there. If you've got an old Farmall or something back from the 40's or 50's, then you've got these square bars under, like an A, Super A, or something like that. You've got the tooling that has the square bar on it and you can use these.
These are couplers that are made for the old Farmall's. That's what is used on this square bar here. It's got what's called a wedge bolt in it. When you draw this tight, this wedge bolt wedges against this square beam here and makes the stem of the bedding disc get tight. You can just take a hammer and tap on these and tighten them up. It helps them get tight. Then when you're ready to loosen them up, make sure your nuts flush with the end of the bolt, pop it with the hammer, it kind of unlocks it, and then it's easy to work.
On the better disc, we use the 14-inch disc. We try to get everything made in America we can. That's one of the few things that I have not found that I could get in America. These are Chinese made, but they make several different grades of them. This is the deluxe version with the dual bearings that are sealed and has six individual bolts holding these discs on here.
They cost more. They have a 22-inch stem, giving you the most adjustment. They are made in China, but they are the best ones I can find anywhere. That's what we're going with for now. You can see with this solid inch and 3/8 bar back here, it makes a good secure connection for your bedding discs. You can see how the ends here are made just to let your plants go through there easier as they get taller. Once they get to about that height, that's about all your tractor is going to let it clear anyway. At that point, you've got enough shade to keep the weeds down and so forth. It's time to just let it grow after it gets too tall to cultivate with these cultivators.
But we're coming out with new products every week at Everything Attachments. We've got our new factory up and running. You're going to see a lot of new things in the future. For all of your gardening needs, just give us a call or an email at Everything Attachments and we'll be happy to help you.
Hi, I'm Ted with Everything Attachments. We're here today with our Cultivator 110. This is a cultivator that's similar to the old Leinbach cultivator except we're using heavy duty, Italian-made tines, double reversible forged points. We're making all of the yellow part in-house. We're even putting these things here through a nice roller here so when you enter your crops...we're going to go over a row that doesn't have anything planted because this is the day we're doing gardening day. So we don't have anything up yet. Hopefully we'll be able to do this once we have our crop up in a couple of weeks.
So this is a row that's already been bedded and raised. So what we're going to do is we're going to straddle it. So if this had been growing for four, six weeks, it was up about this high, and your ground, from you walking up and down in it and so forth and just the rain and everything packing the ground, keeping the rain from being able to absorb into your ground well, that's when you want to keep your young crop cultivated well, where your roots and all will get the aeration, the water can go in, and without damaging your plant, you simply straddle it right here, right in the middle if it's this high and then the tines are going to loosen everything up in the middle to keep it soft and let your crop do the best it can.
Go ahead and give it a run. This is fully adjustable. You have adjustments. This is not all the way out. You have three more holes. If you wanted it really, really narrow, you've got one more hole out and you've got infinite spacing of what you want to do back here.
So right there, he's still leaving the row...he's getting into some really deep there at first...but he's still straddling the row so the high raised ridge is staying there. It's important that you stay looking forward and get straight, which he looked back and he's getting a little off, but he's okay. So that's loosening up all the ground beside your row without bothering your crop, up till it gets to about two, two and a half feet.
After it gets two and a half feet tall, it will shade the area he's doing enough that the weeds won't matter. So you're taking up all the weeds that are absorbing all your nutrients up and getting rid of those and letting the water go down through there. Once your crop is up high enough that the cultivator can't be used anymore, then the shade from the plant will keep all the weeds out of this and the problem kind of goes away.
That's where a tractor that has the position control really would be nice instead of an up or down. He has no exact control except up or down and he's got a big hunk of grass right there. All right, you're good right there. So he's just simply leaving the middle of the row where the plant would be and taking out the weeds and stuff that would be on the side, aerating everything, without bothering the crop.
The more you do it, the better you get at it. Without having a plant to actually follow, following the ground or what looks like a groove is a little hard, but you get the general idea. And a cultivator's an important part of not having to use a hoe all the time and get all the weeds out, because the weeds when they're young can do everything from take over your young plants to keep them from growing because of the shade and simply taking the nutrients out of the ground.
So give us a call or an e-mail at Everything Attachments and we'll be happy to make sure you're getting the right gardening and landscaping attachments for your size of tractor.
