If you have a big garden, you know as well as we do that weeding all that by hand with a hoe or a rake would be hard work and no fun at all. But with a one-row cultivator and your compact utility tractor, you can quickly and easily till the soil on each side of the rows in your garden, removing unwanted grass and weeds, and breaking up the soil crust, making it easier for the ground to absorb moisture and nutrients.
The Frontier One-Row Cultivator (US CA) has six C-shaped tines with reversible and replaceable curved metal tips. The tines are attached to the implement frame with bolts that allow them to be adjusted horizontally along the frame. It’s compatible with a Category 1, 3-point hitch, is iMatch™ compatible and will work well behind tractors with 25 to 45 engine horsepower (18.6-33.6 kW). In this video, we’re using a John Deere 2025R (US CA) Compact Utility Tractor.
The One-Row Cultivator lets you drive your tractor right over the top of the row in your garden, skimming right over the tops of the plants, while the tines cultivate the soil on each side. Adjust the spacing of the tines to make sure you’re really getting a good turn of the soil where you want it.
With a one-row cultivator, you can really cut the time it takes to maintain a big garden, AND improve its yield.
And remember, always read the Operator’s Manual before operating any piece of equipment and follow all operating and safety instructions.
