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 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!

AJgrn78, That's a nice vintage cultivator. :thumbup1gif: I don't know the age, but it's decades older than the one below. :laugh:

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

That is fantastic....:lol:

Missed opportunity though...I would have left the sprocket on the wheel and run something off the chain...like a seeder!
