Wheel Scraper For Field Cultivators
"I like to run shallow with my cultivator. When I start in a field, I start on the higher ground where the soil is dry and hard. That way, when I get to the low ground, where the soil is soft and damp, my field cultivator doesn't run as deep. With the soil being damp and soft in the lower ground, it tends to build up on the wheels, which prevents the cultivator from maintaining a consistent depth throughout the field.
"The scrapers eliminate the problem by keeping the wheels clean at all times. Gives me one less thing to worry about so I can spend more time concentrating on driving and less time climing out of the tractor to clean the wheels."
The adjustable scrapers attach to the toolbar with a simple bolt-on bracket. A set of six sells for $150. A set of 8sells for $200.
