    Default Would you drive 6 hours one way for this cultivator FREE??

    I have been looking locally for a cultivator for my summer food plots. I contacted a farmer friend of mine in KS for advice. Im in TX. He said he had a "like new" Glencoe with manual he would GIVE me if I came to pick it up. I know practically nothing about cultivators. What is your opinion of this brand and model, and would you drive 6 hours one way for this one if it was FREE? thanks

    I don't know a thing about that cultivator but for probably less than $200 worth of fuel? I'd already be in the truck headed that way.

    Glencoe manufacturing used to build quite a few different Agricultural related products. Used to hear of them quite a bit growing up in SD. 'Course that's been nearly 40 years ago at this point...

    But, their products were well constructed and quality components. I'd be "saddlin' up", too!

    Safe trip!

    Uh-oh, a dissenting voice here. That's a lot of money for something that doesn't bring that much at auction. Maybe a couple hundred $$ but I've seen them sell for less in the Midwest. They are cumbersome and you would need to cut it down . A $150 old Dearborn/Ford/ Ferguson cultivator would do a better job and be easier to handle.

    Now, you could couple a toad trip with a pickup of the item and then you have a great situation. Search out a good lunch spot on the way down, check out the sights by using back roads when possible and look at other farm equipment on the way. Bring a kid along for the experience. Take photos. That idea has legs.

    Again, I know virtually nothing of cultivators, but I must admit this thing looks cumbersome and very busy. I used to seeing the smaller 6-8 foot cultivators the old timers around here used for truck patches back in the 60's and 70's. I guess the question I should have been asking is:

    What do you consider to be the best most user friendly cultivator for food plots. I have noticed that some have spring shanks, plow shares, etc. What do you consider the absolute best for user friendly, handy, good job, etc. I will be planting beans, corn, sunflowers, peas, millet etc. thanks also, pics would be great if possible.

    This one is about 30 minutes from me, but current owner wants $650 for it. It looks less complicated, but I don't know enough about them to make proper decision. What do you guys think about this one?

    Are you wanting to prepare soil for planting food plots or are you wanting to cultivate (work to soil around and between) established plants?

    If it were me, I would drive to get it. As another member stated, you will be able to visit with your Friend also. The both of you can share memories and a meal together. Just a thought?
