Default How to make a homemade cultipacker

I found a set of instructions on how to make a homemade cultipacker on the net.* Do a yahoo search for "Cooper's Cultipacker" and it should give you an address to LSUagcenter.com. It gives a complete diagram and material list. I haven't built one yet but plan to replace the 1" shaft with a couple of old car axles and then just use angle iron to make a couple straps and then attach it to my york rake. "Wife put me on budget cap" I'll throw up a post as soon I get this idea operational and let you know how it all works.

Thanks for putting the link on for the QDMA version of the cultipacker on. I already printed it off in case my poor man's experiment should fail.

Look at the Cultipacker by BestOutdoors called the Packer-Maxx it is a pull behind 4" unit for $349 including shipping. They have a three point available March 6th for $499 plus shipping.

Default mine

I made one from a plastic culvert 18" x 5' got a solid shaft from work,had to end pieces milled out to put over the ends with a grease fitting on the and welded my pull arms to them.I welded metal on the shaft to keep the shaft centered in the culvert when I poured it full of concrete.

Question Anyone have pics of the axle/bearing attachment

Does anyone have any pics of the ends of a homemade cultipacker using axle and bearings and the attachment to the frame. Cant figure out how to put it all together. have the culvert and a 1 3/4 rolled steel axle and square tubing for the frame. just need some pics and direction.

thanks to all
