550 S-Tine, two-piece S-tine, and C-shank Cultivators

Strength, durability, and performance are standard features on Salford field cultivators. Hydraulic self-leveling frames and fine-adjust single-point depth control are standard features. Capped, all-tubular steel frames add to the strength of the machine, and 4" x 6" main beams and 2.5" x 2.5" tine bars stand up to the toughest operating conditions. Fewer hinge points greatly reduce wear on Salford cultivators, lowering maintenance costs over the life of these durable machines.

The stiffer tine increases the stir and vibration of Salford S-tine equipment for improved leveling and commodity incorporation.
