Single-point depth control, featured on all models, is conveniently located for easy adjustments and offers accuracy up to 1/4 inch. On models 30 feet and larger, the adjustment is located on the mainframe left of the tongue. On smaller units, it’s near the front of the tongue.

Standard equipment on the 5056 series, this easy-to-read gauge helps set the depth of operation of the tool.
Featured on 5056 models only.

Walking tandems are standard on all sections, enabling the machine to follow the ground contour precisely, maintaining a more consistent sweep depth. The tandem beam pivots on a set of greaseable tapered roller bearings for smooth, long-lasting service. 
Featured on all series models.

Sunflower field cultivators are equipped with maintenance-free lift and wing pivot systems that use service-free UHMW polymer bearings.
Featured on all series models.

Screw adjustment on the wheels provides precise wing-frame leveling and is located above and to the front of the frame for optimum operator convenience.
Featured on all series models.

With 25 inches of under-frame clearance, the 5/8-inch-thick, 190 lb. point-load shanks on a five-bar cultivator placement provide optimum trash flow.
Available on all series models.

S-tine 160 lb. point-load shanks are also available if rocks and stones are not present and the heavier spring-tension shanks are not necessary.
Available on all series models.
