Cultivators For Sale

Cultivators can be broken down in to two main groups, primary cultivators that are designed for the first pass in uncultivated soil.  Cultivators tend to work a little deeper and often are a combination of discs and tines. Machines such as the Sumo Trio, Vaderstad Topdown and Simba SL are popular machines in this category.  The secondary cultivators tend to be lighter and are used for breaking down the soil creating a seedbed; often these are spring tine machines.  Currently, we are seeing a growing demand for disc cultivators like the Vaderstad Carrier and Simba X-press used in both situations, to breakdown ploughing and cultivated land, or directly into stubble.  View our range of new and used cultivators for sale below.

How are Cultivation methods changing?

Cultivation methods have changed over the years but the fundamentals remain the same, virtually all cultivators will use either tines or discs to move soil.  The factor that has changed the most is the quantity of soil Cultivators move. In years gone by cultivation was very intensive with a lot of ploughing and deep disruption of the soil now many farmers are exploring the possibilities of minimum and even zero-tillage.  Cultivation is, and always will be, a vital part of farming. 

Firstly as a method of weed control, either by burying them with deep cultivation or by encouragement of early weed germination which can then be sprayed off.  Secondly to create a suitable seedbed and help the germination of the crop.

Cultivator size variations

Cultivators can come in sizes from 2M to 10M or even 12M machines.  The most common sizes are 3M – 6M and the larger machines folding to a maximum transport with of 3M.  Machines that work the soil with deep tines like a Sumo Trio can take some pulling, and as a result tend to be narrower in size, but machines that work just the top couple of inches with spring tines or discs don’t tend to use a lot of horsepower so can be wider in size.

What are short disc Cultivators?

Short discs are extremely popular currently for their versatility, as they can be used directly on to stubble creating a stale seedbed and encouraging early weed germination or “chitting”.  They can also be used on top of ploughing and early cultivation to break it down into a softer seedbed ready for planting. 

How do I maintain my Cultivator?

Cultivators are simple to maintain with wearing parts readily available from most parts dealers.  Care should be taken when using cultivators not to turn while the machine is in work saving undue strain on the machine.  Moving parts such as bearings and pivots should be regularly greased to extend the life of the machine.  A properly maintained cultivator will be give years of fairly low cost service.
