What is this implement?

Thu Feb 23, 2012 11:25 pm

I inherited a ton of implements from my grandfather and a couple older tractors. This kind of looks like it has the right hookups for my cub and the chains for lifting it. I'm selling stuff off and I'd like to know what it is and where it goes to and maybe its just homemade? I'm new with tractors and implements all together, don't know what stuffs worth or anything about it. I've already accidentally scrapped a cub cultivator! :headbang

Kinda looks like the weeder mulcher on page 20 of this brochure.

Check out this thread. There was a discussion about this type implement. It's a weeded/mulcher, although I can't tell you the brand or model number.

That looks kinda like it actually...like I said I have so many different implements I dont know how anyone would need them all. What would I ever use something like this for?

seedbed prep before planting... getting it smoothed up nicely! Someone will be glad to have that.

The weeder part comes in when a rain after a crop has been planted but not yet emerged causes a hard crust making emergence difficult. Weed seed being thru out all depths will sprout near the surface. Running the weeder a couple of inches deep breaks up the crust and kills tiny weeds. It will not affect the corn even if sprouted but not yet up. We did it with corn only but I would think it would work with beans. I have not seen one used in many years. Vern

The "old folks" around here called them a "pea weeder."

Looks like a chisel to me.

My father had one for his cub, in the 50's. He welded 2 stubs of pipe to the frame, and attached it to the rear cultivator frames, using the wedge clamps. Used it to smooth the soil, after disking. Rear cultivator frame lifted it fine. Ed
