    A disk is a gang of rolling, chopping disks, thus the name.

    A cultivator is a rack of either spring loaded "shoes", spades or C tines that are pulled down the rows. The cultivator is used to clean up weeds and to loosen the soil around growing plants and in between rows.

    A disc or disk gang is for chopping up the stubble after harvest, or to prepare rough soil for further work, in order to plant.

    I could attach photos, but you are better off going to Everything
    This company has videos that explain almost every attachment. Wonderful!!!!
