    Two row cultivator

    Will a two row cultivator work behind a Deere 5200? Have the chance to pick an old Deere up cheap and I kinda need one until I get my Model H with mounted cultivator running.

    Definitely if the wheels can be set to track in the rows.

    Depending on if it straddles 1 or 2 rows you May or May not have to remove the center section.

    It looks like it is 65” wide but you will need to measure because that is very general not taking into account a tire change or spacer change. 65” is not going to work with 30” rows but it would with 36” rows so it would straddle 1 row meaning the center section of the cultivators would have to be removed. However if it is a 2 row I guess it already is.

    But pulling it, no problem at all.

    This is it. He has center section removed he said. Was trying to use it behind a 4010 for pumpkins. If I remember outside of tire to outside of tire my tractor is 5'6". I'll have to measure in the morning. I know I run down 15" soybeans fine with the sprayer

    It looks like it is a Catagory 2. You might be able to flip the pins and get to a very tight Cat.1. The stabilizer disk can be removed.

    IMHO that implement has only enough shanks & sweeps to cultivate 1 row if both units were moved closer together on toolbar. . As it's pictured it's set up similar to rear track plows for frt mount cultivator not as a true rear rowcrop cultivator. Granted photo is of a cultivator designed for more rows than 2 but the rigs still have to be spaced the same distance apart to cultivate & not disturb the crop.

    IMHO, that is not a cultivator,,,

    That is a tool to break the tracks left by the tractor tires,,
    the tractor that used that tool had a front mounted cultivator.

    The tool needs a few more attachments to become a makeshift one row cultivator.

    The stabilizer disk was the only thing that saved my BIL,s soybeans as I cultivated,,
    without it,, I would have plowed under 1/3 of the crop,,,

    Looks like a cultivator to me. ...you said he has the missing center section available...which is good.

    You will want to keep the stabilizer disk. This helps dramatically to keep it going straight.

    I saw one for sale in central Illinois too. He errantly calls it a '3 row', it would be a '2 row' even after he adds the 'missing section'.
    But it looks pretty good.

    I'm not sure how to share the link. When I click it above, it doesn't take me to the item. Anyway, in Facebook Marketplace, search "3 row cultivator" in Charleston, IL.

    There's a lot more parts missing than a "center section" to make it into a 2 row cultivator.

    If you Google "front mount cultivator",,

    front mount cultivator - Google Search

    then look on the back of most of those tractors,, you will see that tool bar.

    If you leave the dirt compacted from the tractor tires going over it behind the cultivator,, the compacted earth promotes weed seed sprouting.

    That tool bar will "fluff" the tire compacted earth,, allowing the soil to dry, thereby delaying weed seed sprouting.

    Kinda like a chemical-free herbicide,,,
