Abstract: A cultivator has a frame normally carried on the back of a tractor and pulled in a predetermined direction along the ground. A plurality of tines extend downwardly from this cultivator and penetrate the ground. Each tine is pivotal about a respective axis perpendicular to the direction of travel and parallel to the ground and is biased into a normal central position by means of a respective hydraulic actuator. The cylinders of all of the hydraulic actuators are connected together in a closed network so that if one tine is forced backwardly the other tines will be urged correspondingly forwardly and vice versa. In addition each such tine, which also may be mounted on a parallelogrammatic linkage, may carry a V-shaped backwardly extending blade increasing the mixing and aeration effect of the cultivator.
Abstract: A cultivator wheel is disclosed for use in agricultural machines. It has a hub and tines which project substantially radially from the hub and are provided with pointed outer end portions. These tines are bent out of the central radial plane of the wheel. Portions of the wheel are formed with cutting edges that are inclined circumferentially of the wheel as well as relative to the central radial plane of the same.
Abstract: A support is connectable with an agricultural machine, and a plurality of agricultural tools is provided which are mounted by mounting elements on the support so that they can be adjusted relative to the support. A single arresting element is provided which arrests all of the tools in their respective positions. The tools have mounting portions extending into a passage in the support and either the passage itself or an auxiliary element in the passage has a wedge face to engage the tool mounting portions.
