Hi. I'm Ted, from Everything Attachments. We're here to show you the Fred Cane Field Cultivator. This is different than your regular garden cultivator. This is really meant for fields, rough terrain, tearing down plants or gardens that had grown; anything like that, or loosening up old ground that's been really packed tight and you just want to rip it up. These shanks here are really heavy-duty compared to a standard cultivator. They're spring-loaded, so if you hit a really big rock, stump, or something like that under it, they'll fold back and re-trip automatically without having to tear anything up or replace anything. We're going to rip this garden that's been fixed here, and it'll be going deep because it's in pretty lose ground. Then we're going to rip a place over here beside, like you would normally be in a hard field or something. Through the garden here, where it's been cultivated and all, you probably won't see any of the springs stretching or tripping because it's been loosened up with the turning plow earlier. When we do over here beside us in the really hard dirt, you probably will see them springing a little bit. That levels everything out. You can take the center one out and cultivate your crop like a cultivator. Then you can do a really rough field also. OK. With a field cultivator using it in really hard ground, this is hard clay, it's packed good, one thing, a field cultivator to really get it deep like you think you want it, it takes a lot of horsepower to pull it. This is a fairly lightweight tractor. This is a 7-shank gripper. If it's pulling too hard and your tractor's spinning, what you can always do is drop off the two outside rippers, whether you bought a 9, wanted to go to a 7. Really, probably, this would pull a 5-shank with no problem as deep as you want to go. We'll see what it does with a 7. If it pulled too hard, we could simply take 2 of these shanks off. There's so many bolt holes in here, you have almost an infinite amount of spacing to space them any way you like. OK, Peanut, give it a try on that hard ground. You can see the springs. I see the tines coming back already between that wire grass and this hard red clay that hasn't been broken. The springs are letting the tines come back a little bit, just like if it were hitting a rock or something. Sometimes, it takes 2 passes to get a really good broken ground in ground that's not been broken. This is a good way to aerate your field, get it cultivated, and get a lot of the trash out of it.
