A cultivator is a tool for effortlessly loosening agricultural land and churning it for the prevention of further growth of unwanted plants, such as weeds. When working with a cultivator it is important to be mindful of the correct depth, routing, and driving speed.
Manual and mechanical version
Cultivators are available in both manual and mechanically driven versions. A mechanically driven cultivator can be pulled behind a tractor and has bent teeth. When sprung, the cultivator is called a spring-tine cultivator. Both versions are available through Tradus.
During operation, the cultivator can run on two compressed wheels, placed between the rear-most two rows of teeth. The most modern cultivators nowadays don’t have wheels, but are instead attached directly to the tractor, which serves as the base unit. Apart from loosening and churning soil, the cultivator often also serves for stubble cultivation of grain and corn land. This prevents compaction of the surface, drains excess rainwater, and efficiently kills weeds and crop remains.
