Johnny, you could spend the next 10 years tracking them down. That full set in CT sounds a little high for my area but is probably in the ball park in your area. They are only about 2 1/2 hours away AND THEY EXIST. Think about it. Have Boss Hog look at the picture and he can probably confirm their completeness.

That looks like an essentially complete set. There are no plant shields, which is true of many sets of cultivators. Depending on your intended use, that may not matter to you. It does not have a rear rockshaft, which isn't considered part of the cultivators but a separate attachment of the tractor. You may already have one. If not, you would need one to use the rear section of the cultivator. It looks like the spring of the right front pressure rod may be stretched/damaged. If so, it may be a negotiation point on price. It isn't a problem for you because you have a spare.

You can see that it has 6 spring trips on the front and 4 spring teeth on the rear, which is pretty well equipped for most needs.

Johny, as Jim said it looks to be complete for the most part. It is an older set. Both front spring appear to be damaged. The rear gang beam bearing appear to be the older style.
Judging from the points on the shanks it has not seen any use in a while as they are not set up very well. I would offer him $400 and see what happens. down here sets for a SA-140 will bring from $400 to $800 depending on condition.

Hey guys thanks for all the advice and knowledge. We have been so busy on the farm that I haven't been able to check in. I'm gonna see if the set in Ct is still available.

Yeah, you don't have much there....especially with the bent/broken parts. I would say you have the 2 pressure spring arms, and some parts. Looking for a complete cultivator is what you need to focus on. They can be had and we can help you assess its condition and completeness.
