OPERATING

Using Cultivator
The most common uses for a cultivator:
1. Weed control in emerging gardens:
A
• Straddle row cultivation: By straddling the cultivator
over the plant row, weeds on each side of the row of
plants can be dislodged.
C
• Between row cultivation: Using the full width of the
cultivator, the space between rows of plants can be tilled
to loosen the soil and dislodge weeds (a minimum
space between rows of 1.27-1.40 m (50-55 in.) is
required.
A
B
E
C
D
G
F
H
2. Prepare seed beds:
• Scratching the surface: The cultivator can be used to
break the surface of the soil to allow for planting.
I
• Prepare for field sowing: Large planting beds such as
lawns can be prepared for planting.
MX13266
3. Garden clean-up in fall:
• Rake: The cultivator can be used to remove vines
and other plant residue after the growing season.
• Level old growth: After plant residue has been
removed, the area can be leveled to prepare the area for
the next season.
3. Loosen the capscrews and nuts (A) at the front A-frame
and at the front of the frame struts (B).
NOTE: To obtain the desired width, it may be necessary
to remove the capscrew, nut and washers, and move
the rear of the frame struts to another mounting hole.
4. Loosen the capscrews and nuts (C) at the rear of the
frame struts.
Adjusting Frame Width
5. Move the right (D) and left (E) frame angles in or out
until the desired width is obtained.
NOTE: Tine spacing is changed when the frame width
is adjusted.
6. Tighten the capscrews and nuts (C) at the rear of the
frame struts.
1. Park the machine safely. (See Parking Safely in Safety
section.)
2. Lower the cultivator until the bottom of the spring tines
are approximately 25 mm (1 in.) off the ground.
7. Move the spring tines (F) until they are parallel with the
direction of travel.
8. Tighten the capscrews and nuts (A) at the front A-frame
and at the front of the frame struts (B).
9. Loosen the capscrews and nuts for each remaining pair
of spring tines (G - I), adjust until parallel with the direction
of travel, and tighten the capscrews and nuts.
Changing Spring Tine Spacing
The spring tine spacing can be changed by moving the
spring tines to any one of the slotted mounting holes in the
frame. Spacing can also be changed by adjusting the frame
width.
1. Park the machine safely. (See Parking Safely in Safety
section.)
2. Lower the cultivator until the bottom of the spring tines
are approximately 25 mm (1 in.) off the ground.

OPERATING
NOTE: Two extra sets of spring tine mounting hardware
are included with the cultivator. This hardware is
needed when the spring tines at position (A) are moved
to another set of open mounting holes in the frame.
Leveling Front-to-Back
NOTE: The normal operating position will be level (all
tines making even contact with the ground).
A
B
A
A
MX13267
1. Loosen the center link jam nut (A).
MX13266
2. Level the cultivator front-to-back:
3. Remove and/or locate the spring tine(s) to any open
mounting hole to obtain the desired spacing.
• Turn the center link adjuster (B) clockwise (as viewed
from the rear) to lower the rear of the cultivator.
• Turn the center link adjuster (B) counterclockwise (as
viewed from the rear) to raise the rear of the cultivator.
Leveling the Cultivator
3. Tighten the center link jam nut (A).
Leveling Side-to-Side
1. Park the machine safely. (See Parking Safely in Safety
section.)
2. Lower the cultivator to the ground.
Operating Tips
• Never use the cultivator when the soil is wet. Pick up a
handful of soil and roll it into a ball. If the soil does not
crumble, it is too wet.
If the soil is too dry, it may be difficult for the cultivator to
penetrate properly.
• Avoid low areas, old roadways, paths and other areas
where the soil is overly packed.
A
B
•
Adjust the frame to the desired width before use.
• Straddle Row Cultivating: Before use, check the spacing
required to clear the plants being cultivated. Adjust the
spring tine spacing to the required width.
MX13268
3. Loosen the adjuster jam nut (A) on the right rockshaft
arm.
4. Level the cultivator side-to-side:
• Turn the adjuster (B) clockwise to lower the right side
of the cultivator.
• Turn the adjuster (B) counterclockwise to raise the
right side of the cultivator.
•
Level the cultivator before use.
• The recommended cultivating depth is 50 mm (2 in.). A
deeper setting will remove excessive moisture from the soil.
• Push and hold the 3-point hitch control lever in the lower
position until the cultivator is digging into the soil at the
desired depth.
• When cultivating an area, keep the machine speed low
3-5 km/h (2-3 mph).
•
Always lift the cultivator before turning.
5. Tighten the adjuster jam nut (A).
