 Cultipacker

There was a time when almost every farmer had a "Brillion" cultipacker. It had cast hollow "V" shaped disks that were about 18-24" in diameter and about 3-4" wide with a few cross braces supporting an inner hub where the shaft went through (about 2 to 2 1/2 diameter). It had cast steel end plates with brass bearing sleeves and a cross-bolt to hold it together. The endplates were connected by 3" angle irons that went full width. A tongue was connected to this at the end plates. Most of the cultipackers in our area were 12' wide.

Is this the type you are building?

Farmers have gone to some newer techniques, since the older cultipackers never had wheels to lift them off. They were very noisy when running them on the road and sometimes left "V" imprints on a hot tarred road.

yes it WAS the kind I was making. A real man admits his failures! I started making one and quit! Laughing out loud. After making a few pieces I realized that what I was making was not going to work in the area I am and for what I want it for. I need to buy one! The RIGHT material would run me more than I care to spend on something that may not be as efficient as the older ones. I met my match with this one.
Laughing out loud. Also those bucket forks I made worked great but now I see what a 3pt fork/pallet mover looks like and realize I shoulf of use my material to make one of those instead of bucket forks. Its hard to see the front of the forks and a 3pt system would of accomplished what I wanted to use it for much better. I have bucket forks now for the rest of my life anyway!
Like I said," I am looking to buy an old cultipacker or a section of one so anyone knowing of one around let me know, I am looking for an excuse for a road trip anyway.
Thanks alot guys!
