Dailey's Farm & Walk-Behind Tractors
Click image below for a larger picture
Constructed by Aldo Biagioli of Italy, these universal tools are available in 4 configurations and feature clamp-on shanks with standard reversible 1½” wide chisels. The working angle of the tool is controlled by the adjustment on the Tool Carrier (see below), and the overall penetration depth is controlled both by this angle adjustment AND the TWO removable/adjustable caster wheels that all of this brand of cultivators come with (other cultivators on the market have only a SINGLE depth wheel, which is problematic: With only one depth wheel, when one of the tractor wheels goes over a hump or into a depression, the shanks on one side of the cultivator lean to one side and “dig in” more, causing the tractor to veer in that direction). Also, the Aldo Biagioli design allows the standard chisels to be easily removed with a single bolt, and the curved OR straight shanks will accept “V-sweeps”, which, when the angle of the tool carrier is adjusted so that the sweeps lay “flat” on the ground, are great for weed control, slicing just below the surface. These sweeps are available from us, or at most Farm Supply stores. Outfitted correctly (and with exact row spacing!), several rows of crops can be cultivated between simultaneously, as the tractor can straddle 6” – 7” tall plants (with tall enough tires).
