just thought i would share my three point cultipacker with you all. my father in law and i built this out of an ancient pull type. the only things we used were the culter wheel. the axil is two inch steel. the frame is made of 1/4inch thick 2x2 square tubing. sides are 3/4in steel plate. my father in law has a shop which helped make things go very smoothly
thanks for looking, brian

Love the 3 pt hitch idea--makes me want to take one of my old units apart and have the weld shop up the road make me one just like it. OH!!! By the way every thing else looks great also.:D

I would spend a lot of time with a drag getting it to & from. This looks like it would be very efficient. Let us know how it works.

it works pretty good. it is very heavy so you need to have weights on the front of the tractor for sure. is does best in dry soil. if the ground gets somewhat sticky as with any piece of equipment it doesn't work as well
here is a pic of a rolled field prior to planting
that field was still just a bit wet but it did ok

Nice fabrication job. I like your mud scrapers you added. I too have a 3pt cultipacker --no mud scrapers though. Here is my customized 3pt 6 ft wide cultipacker attached to my vintage 1968 Massery Ferguson 135 (38 Hp). I too had to add suit case weights to the front of my tractor to keep the front end on the ground. I have used this cultipacker for 5 years, works great and is easier to get around in tight spots as compared to a pull behind. Easier to load and trailer as well.
