OPERATION
The disc cultivator is used to break up clods of dirt in plowed
soil. It can also be used to cultivate between rows of young
plants.
1. Before starting make sure the soil is dry enough by
squeezing some in your hand. If it forms a ball that
doesn't crumble then the soil is too wet for discing. Wet
soll will pack between the disc blades.
2. Adjust the discs to the desired angle setting. The angle
can be varied from 10 to 20 degrees. Start with a setting
of 15 degrees (the carriage bolt centered in the angle
adjustment slot in the bearing hanger bracket). The
greater the angle, the greater the discing action.
3. Tobreak up dirt clods in plowed soil. start discing slowly
at first. As the clods are broken up the speed may be
gradually increased. Disc the soil using a crisscross
pattern for best results.
4. To cultivate young crops by straddling the rows, move
the discs to the maximum width setting. To throw the dirt
to the outside, the concave side of the discs should face
outward with the disc assemblies angled toward the rear
center. To throw dirt to the inside, to smother young
weeds in the crop row, the concave side of the discs
should face inward with the disc assemblies angled
toward the front center.
5. To use two cultivators in tandem, the disc assemblies
should be positioned as shown in figure 8, with the inside
discs almost touching on the front cultivator and 8" to 10"
apart on the rear cultivator. With this arrangement the
front cultivator will throw the dirt to the oútside and the
rear cultivator will throw the dirt back to the inside.
6. Upto 100 Ibs. of weight may be added to help increase
penetration. Concrete blocks or other weight may be tied
or strapped to the cultivator tray. Before adding weight,
the cultivator should be attached to the tractor with the
sleeve hitch in the down position.
MAINTENANCE
1. Check for loose bolts after each use.
2. Clean the disks and lightly oil any exposed metal after
each use.
3. Remove all dirt and rust and touch up with paint
before storing.
4, Store inside a dry area.
