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.
