Like New Field Cultivator
Texas farmer David Eskew spent about $6,000 using all new materials to build his own 30-ft. field cultivator.
"It's built as heavy or heavier than a commercially-built machine. I saved money over a new machine and I enjoy the work," he says.
The only parts purchased ready-made were the hydraulic cylinders (both wings fold up), shanks, and spring teeth on the tag-along harrow bar. He used a shop press to make all curved pieces and to bend the U bolts.
A hitch at the back pulls an anhydrous trailer. Eskew uses the front shanks for injection and the rear to cover. The spring teeth follow and smooth the ground.
