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.

New two-piece S-tine models are available with 26 inches of under-frame clearance, 4.5-inch shank spacing, and a four-inch cast chrome high wear point.

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