    Default Cultipacker Build

    Have been working on this project on and off for several months. The Plant Manager wants to plant buckwheat in our fallow garden plots and supported my effort to get it done and out of the garage, where it's been taking up far too much space.

    Welding main frame complete, axle, pillow block and wheel assembly installed.
    Fit up of the hitch structure commences:

    Assembled and inspected:

    The Plant Manager approves after sea trials:

    That's the problem with trouble.

    Great job!! Not to be picky though, but technically that is a packer. A cultipacker would have two axles,with rollers,with a gang of spring tooth tines centre mounted.
    Nice work.

    So it's just a "packer"? Dang.
    Too late to change the title.
    But I already learned something today!

    Don't worry. A cultipacker can be your NEXT project.

    They were made by John Deere. In my area the equivalent Brillion Pulvimulcher was more common.

    Your original post is correct. It is definitely a cultipacker. Look up cultipacker on the internet of go to Sweet Tractor Equipment. The one with spring teeth is a cultimulcher

    This is all true. As far as I know John Deere originally coined the term "cultipacker" and indeed has spring tines. The term has probably become a generic one by now. I have the Brillion version of it (pulvimulcher) as well as the Brillion packer like the excellent project of the OP.

    The spring tines would be the "culti" part of the cultipacker. Maybe...?
