 Perfecta harrow vs cultipactor

Perfecta harrow is an implement made by an Ohio company named Unverferth. They classify it as a field cultivator but I've been told it can be adjusted to do various tasks including cultipacking. Once plowing and heavy disking duties are done, some farmers put these on and that's it.

Am wondering if anyone has any experiences with it and what they thought.

 Perfecta harrow vs cultipactor

It's not the same as a cultipacker. It is a light tillage tool used to prepare seedbeds prior to planting certain crops.

The basic problem is that it is NOT intended for use in 'virgin' soil, just land that has been previously, and hopefully fairly recently, been worked already with plow or disk.

It also does not leave a fine enough finish to be suitable for planting turf into for instance.

Best of luck.

 Perfecta harrow vs cultipactor

The guys farming my property use this implement (but a little bigger- sides fold up) just prior to planting in the spring. They go over it just once and then plant. The bar type wheel at the back is supposed to break/chop up the clumps. It doesn't do a bad job. If you till the ground at the correct moisture level, clumps aren't a real problem. It is not a perfect world so sometimes you need to till when conditions aren't quite right. The culti-packer really broke up the clumps years ago, but also packed the ground which in today's farming world is bad.

Years ago we tiled the land at 100 ft. intervals for irrigation where now we have gone in between to 50 ft. intervals. This allows the soil to drain faster and more evenly. Farmers usually have someone do a fly-by in the early spring and have pictures taken of the land; you can see the lines where the tile are and determine if they are working properly have have sufficient amounts of them.

Most farmers don't plow anymore either. They use an harrow instead. This one is slightly more heavy duty than the one pictured for going a little deeper. They want to get in and get out fast with as little soil compaction as possible. If you plow too deep, you turn over the best soil and deposit it underneath while also disturbing the weeds. The best soil is less than 6" deep. It is all different than when I grew up.

For doing feed plots and smaller acre types of things, a used cultipacker would be fine to break up the soil clumps. It is only necessary in clay loom soils. If you are just trying to level out the soil you can make a spike tooth drag to mount behind a disc. Most of the seeds don't care if the ground is a little uneven.

This spike tooth drag can be made from 2 1/2" pipe in 2 rows that are 18-24" apart. Connect the ends with some 1/8 or 3/16" thick x 2 1/2 flat stock. Drill holes in the pipe at even intervals about a foot apart and at a slant of about 20 degrees from vertical such that the holes are pointing down and toward the back. Find yourself a bunch of railroad spikes and drive them into the pre-drill holes. The second row should be staggered so they are midway between the first row. If you have lots of weeds they will get stuck on the spikes. You can drag this behind another implement by using some chain. This will level out the soil somewhat.

I am looking for a cultipacker to assure me seed soil contact. I am under the impression that it is the best way to go for food plots especially if all conditions are not perfect.

If you're drilling seed, just drag a chain behind the drill. We did for years with wheat and oats.

Broadcast seeding would need the harrow in my opinion.

Raised on a grain, hog, sheep farm....many moons ago.
