Danish style shovels

Postby bobburke » Thu Jun 10, 2021 5:11 am

Good morning, has anyone mounted single hole danish cultivator shovel on cub cultivator shanks. We use one cub to cultivate between our plastic covered rows, almost like a field cultivator. Ebay sells the wider danish style rather cheap compared to other shovels. Thanks

cant hold them straight on any other mountings. The formed neck is designed to fit around the danish shank only. You could try them and see. Might get lucky. They would dig deep but slide around established weeds.

You might be happier using sweeps on your Cub cultivator

IIRC, IH used to make a sweep that would fit their regular shanks, but was flatter than a regular sweep.

You might be able to adjust the angle on the shank and get the danish style sweeps to work right.
