    (Very) Old-school cultivating

    OK, I'm going "green"! It actually still "works" if that's what you'd call it.

    How old is something like this? It's all cast iron, no visible markings, all square-head bolts. My inlaws had this sitting around for decades and gave it to me.

    I don't know how old it is. But we have one too and it works very well.

    I also have one, but it has wood handles. I have not seen that old that was all metal. I know they are a lot older than I am. I started using one as a kid, as soon as I able to push it. They work great in soft soil.

    I tried it my garden and had to admit that someone, a long time ago, put some thought into the geometry of this thing, it did work! Now if all 3 of my tillers were broken, and I was desperate...maybe I'd be out there pushing like old Jebediah on the homestead.

    Long time ago

    We used to use those to open rows to plant in my grandfather's garden. It actually worked pretty well and as a kid, it worked me too!

    first one i have ever seen without the wooden handles from the axle to the hand hold. i say it might be from the turn of the century

    AJgrn78, That's a nice vintage cultivator. I don't know the age, but it's decades older than the one below.

    Guessing that one is older than my FIL with wooden handles. Believe that is a keeper.

    Older than me and I'm 69. Probably pre-depression era. Used one with wooden handles to weed the garden as a kid many times. Remember they had attachments with them too.
