Disc Cultivators Catching On Fast
Now, for the first time, you can modify your existing cultivator with horizontal spinning discs called "Spin Sweeps," introduced by Eversman Mfg. Co., Denver, Col.
The advantage of these spinning discs, says a company spokesman, is that they penetrate the soil as well as sweeps but don't plug in heavy trash. Weeds just spin off the revolving, ground-driven discs. Plus, the spinning action results in less resistance so you need less horsepower to pull the cultivator through the field. The spokesman says that most rocks spin off without any problems but notes that the sweeps do have shear bolts.
Spin Sweeps mount in place of tines or sweeps and are available with 5/8 by 2 in., 3/4 by 2 1/2 in. and 1 by 3 in. shank sizes to fit clamps on diamond, square and T-bars. Discs are available from 10 to 22 in. in dia. and in flat, spherical and conical configurations.
A 16 in. disc, with a 1 by 3 in. shank, sells for $150. Optional clamps are also available.
