Wanted- older IH row crop cultivator

Hey guys,

 

I am looking for a IH 153 or 163 cultivator.

 

4,6, or 8 row, 38'' with solid shanks.

 

I am willing to do some cutting and moving to make one work, I need to end up with at least a 4 row.

 

Thanks,

Jared

Re: Wanted- older IH row crop cultivator

Hi again, Jared;

The e-mail addy is lawlcvf@juno.com - don't know if I did it right before

the cell is 269-438-6141,  it will take a message if I am in somewhere and can;t answer it.

If those don't work and you feel comfortable, give me a phone # or e-mail and I'll try you.

We'll get together yet!

Thanks,

Larry

Re: Wanted- older IH row crop cultivator

I have a couple 8-30 front mount cultivators.  Biggest problem would be transporting.  I'm in SE Illinois.  Normal transport width is about 16 ft.  I forget how narrow we could make them.

Re: Wanted- older IH row crop cultivator

Mike,

 

What model are your cultivators, will they fit a 1066?

 

Do they have solid shanks?

 

Thanks,

Jared

Re: Wanted- older IH row crop cultivator

Yes to both,  I thought I had some photos .. actually I KNOW I do I just can't find them.  Attached is a photo of our 12 row, which is similar but has been modified to use Danish tines instead of being rigid.  I'll try and remember to get some photos Friday if I get the chance.

Re: Wanted- older IH row crop cultivator

Here are a few photos.  Too bad you weren't at Paris, Illinois Saturday.  Thy sold a couple 12/30 hydraulic fold ... I think for $500 or less.  I suspect at least one will show up at Groff's auction the 26th (http://www.auctionzip.com/Listings/1095516.html)

 

Here is both 8 rows from the left rear

Both from right rear

The cultivator slips into this mount and 2 bolts hold it in place.

2 turnbuckles swing around and attach to the side plate.  In the field the frames swing around and a pin goes through the arm to hold it in place.

So, did this help any?

I just realized I edited and inserted the photos instead of making a new reply, so the thread didn't bounce to the top.

Re: Wanted- older IH row crop cultivator

Thanks Mike,

 

Do you know how much you want for them? I may be interested in both.

 

Also I got to thinking, do you think I could  try to do some creative welding and extend the tool bars to make it a wide row? I was thinking maybe  I could splice it with angle iron on the in side.

 

Anyone else have any ideas.

 

Thanks,

Jared
