When we picked up the H in PA a couple weeks back the guy said he had this "thing". He advised it was modified to be used for the building of a local race track. It had been sitting under a pine tree. He wanted it gone - so I gave him $100 and loaded it up. The ball hitch mystifies me. That will be coming off. It's Red underneath the purple....The serial tag is there, but I haven't gotten the paint off of it yet. It has been shortened at each end.

Looks like Ford or Dearborn 3 point cultivators. They used to have trouble getting $10 for them at auctions, but might get more now with scrap being higher.

Spring toothed harrow. Way back when, used a different version to cultivate weeds from corn, when corn was about 6 inches tall.

We call em a tiller tool but the ones here have better type shanks, I do not think it is Ford, I think it is Allis Chalmers I have seen those spring teeth on Allises

The paint under the purple could be AC color. It's not IH red for sure. Boss - do you know why it has only one coulter?

Coulter appears to be braced in location. My guess is the coulter is an add on to keep the harrow/cultivator, or what ever it's locally called, centered, following the pickup or tractor in a straight line.
The spring tooth harrow we had, 4 or 6 sections wide when working, would wobble back and forth.

Well I am just guessing, but I guess that the guy that added that one did not have another

Probably made by Pittsburgh Forgings (same company that made the Carry-Lift). I believe they made cultivators for both Ford and Ferguson. I have a one-point version that is orange and carries a Pittsburgh data tag.
Note that most illustrated in this ad have a single stabilizer colter.http://www.amazon.com/Pittsburgh-Forgings-Cultivators-LInkage-Farming/dp/B007V6ZGAU

The coulter is factory mounted. The ball hitch is bolted through the original 3-Pt hitch frame remains a mystery. - Perhaps like Eugene suggested the coulter is to keep lateral stress away from the unit. That being said - it would seem the 3Pt hitch bolts would do that. We'll be giving it a try in the spring time.
The points are worn on one side, they've not been turned. I was also thing that perhaps I could but chisel teeth on it. The rang of motion and configuration possibilities seem endless.

Now, I'm gonna have to get that painted name tag.....I hope it's stamped and not just painted.

This a Dearborn Model 13-2 Two Row Cultivator. This is part of the Ferguson Cultivating System made for the 8n's. It's a Ford Product.Here is the manual. Looking forward to getting this fixed.
