I got to meet John B. NE IN today, he made me a fair deal on this Ferguson
cultivator. The tag is on it, but I haven't read the model number on it yet.
If it weren't for the cold we probably could have talked most of the day.
It fit pretty well in the back of the truck. John just picked it up and set it in there!
Don't let him give that skid steer too much credit...... Wink
Thanks again John!

That disk blade guide instead of a sliding fin tells me it is a Dearborn, not a Ferguson.

Can't tell you for sure Leroy, but the tag says Ferguson SKO-20.
The manual says a rolling fin was available, and recommended for trashy
land, not recommended for rocky soil.
I suppose it could have been added from a Dearborn as well.

Nothing as good as getting a new piece of equipment home safe and sound. I had a beautiful 861 that i had just got home, unloaded and was hooking up a bush hog. Level ground, a good ways to any grade and nothing can go wrong ??????? The sound of the tires rolling on gravel with no way to safely try to stop in. Watched as it rolled down hill and hit a ditch-------by the time i got to it i could see the big puddle of oil under it and saw a one inch separation where it had broken in half aft of the flange. Local dealer had good used 861 i got parts to make repair.

That's a great looking cultivator! I'm envious of that center wheel. I hope it warms up soon enough for you that you can get around to playing with it.

Very nice! I don't quite understand the purpose of the one wheel disc. Seems it would have several if they were for trash land cutting? I am just wondering what good "one" would do? I just have a 1 row cultivator so no disc included on mine.

Hey Royce, nice to meet you and glad to know you will be making good use of the cultivator. I never thought a passing comment on here would actually turn into a sale. BTW, The paint color is rustolem safty red [from Lowes and very reasonable] but had I not already purchased the paint, I would have painted it gray to match the tag. Also, perhaps you can take a close up picture of the 2 dials on the top we spoke about and someone on here can explain what they are for.

GWStang, the wheel (or the regular fin) is to "steer" the cultivator when you turn.
Say you get off to one side a bit, and correct the steering on the tractor.
When you turn the dirt exerts pressure on the side of the fin and steers the
cultivator the same direction you turned the front wheels.
Supposed to keep it from swinging out the opposite direction and taking out your row.
It also helps in the same way if you are cultivating on a hillside by steering it uphill.
I guess the difference would be that the wheel would not plug up with trash,
but would get beat up by the rocks. (that's a guess)

I'm glad you didn't let it set around and rust John, I've been looking for one.
I'm going to have to get some pictures of those dials.
I've looked through the manual several times. Nothing in there on them.
It was a nice drive for a Saturday, and I always like to meet other tractor people.
Tug of war on cement still has me wondering.
Probably could find an old 4x4 around here...... Smile

The Disc Steering Guide was a Dearborn feature.
The Ferguson-Sherman cultivators had a rectangular
type steering fin. Both did exactly that -help
guide the cultivator to follow the tractor. When
Dearborn Motors began as the Ford distributor for
tractors and implements after Henry II fired Harry
Ferguson in 1946, to avoid copyright infringement,
Dearborn had to alter some things slightly. The
14" width of the cultivator was changed to 15" and
the rolling steering guide were most likely some
of those alterations. Ferguson-Sherman implements
were painted Ford M2888 Dark Gray -like the 9N
tractor. The Dearborn line was all painted Ford
Vermilion Red like the 8N.

Thanks Tim, I'm really not sure who invented the rolling fin,
I was just going by the Ferguson SKO-20 owners manual.
Its on the other N board for viewing.

All the time I had the cultivator I wondered about the single disc. Nothing we farmed with back in the day had anything like that except the plow. I do remember some of the old front mounted cultivators were coupled to the steering to keep the shovels in the rows and out of the corn or beans.
