What is a Cultivator?
The cultivator is a secondary tillage tool that works by breaking up (tearing) and fluffing the soil without overturning and preserving the moisture of the soil. The working depth varies in the range of 5-15 cm. Structurally, it consists of piers connected to a roof at appropriate intervals and irons attached to the ends of the piers.
What Does a Cultivator Do?
It is agricultural equipment with a wide range of uses such as secondary tillage, doubling-tripling, seed bed preparation, mulching soil cultivation, stubble breaking, soil mixing and aeration, as well as completely environmentally friendly weed control, away from the use of chemical products.
How Does the Cultivator Work?
The cultivator is connected to the tractor with the suspension system. Thanks to the structure of its legs, it breaks the bottom layer of the plow (heavy cultivator and bottom boiler) and it can cultivate the soil with little clod in dry summer months when plow processing cannot be done. It brings small clods down and large clods up.
It prevents rainwater from standing on the surface by processing at a high working depth, and by ensuring that the water is drawn to the bottom, it ensures that the moisture of the soil is preserved, the hard soil layer is broken and the plant roots move towards the bottom easily. It minimizes the moisture loss that may occur after the process by pressing the soil lifted by the feet with the roller attached to the chassis at the same time.

How to Adjust Cultivator?
It is connected to the tractor via the hydraulic middle arm, it should be placed in parallel. It is important that the placement phase is done on flat ground in order to understand the parallelism and the exact alignment of the feet. After the settlement is established, it is necessary to ensure that the front and rear legs on the right and the front and rear legs on the left are equally on the ground for control purposes.
If there are feet that do not fully touch the ground and that remain in the air on the right and left parts, necessary adjustments should be made from the right and left adjustment levers connected to the tractor. Hydraulic middle arm adjustment is required even when the front and rear feet are not on the ground equally. When the settlement process of the cultivator is completed, it should be able to stretch 10 cm to the right and left. After all adjustments are completed, control should be provided with the tractor drawbar. Speed and working depth should be kept constant while driving.
What Should Be Considered While Buying a Cultivator?
According to the size of your land, you should choose the cultivator type that is suitable for the working width of the cultivator, the soil structure and the operations you will do. Another important thing to consider when making this combination is the drawbar capacity of the tractor.
