Model CS - Rolling Spider Cultivators
Hydraulic Width Adjustment Model CS (Channel Slide Toolbar)
- plastic culture
The frame of the Model CS consists of two channels which form the track for a sub-frame controlled by a hydraulic cylinder. This design permits easy adjustment to accommodate changes in field conditions or crop application.
This cultivator is especially useful for crops raised on plastic mulch. The lateral soil movement will cover small weeds along the plastic or cover loose plastic edges. Hydraulic control of the cultivators permits rapid course correction.
In addition to the adjustment for the angle at which the cultivator moves through the soil, the pitch of the gang may be adjusted to conform to an established ridge. This adjustment is done quickly without tools.
For full extension, the inward attachment point of the hydraulic cylinders is exchanged. In this position, clamps and spider gangs may be added to the center of the frame for cultivating two rows.
