I am looking for a tool bar for my ford 4000 tractor. There probably is a correct name for this implement but I don't know what the name would be other than a tool bar.

This is a bar that mounts on a three point hitch. The bar is about 2 inches square. You are able to bolt other attachments to the bar such as a ripper or a ducks foot(I know some one will comment on the ducks foot, when I was a kid that was what we called them)

If you do, would you please post some pictures of the set up and how the 3 point is bolted to the bar.

If I don't find one in the near feature I guess I will make one. That is the reason for the request for pictures.

What would a person expect to pay for a used one. From a privet person? Or from a Dealer?

Thanks
Charlie.

Sounds like you are looking for 401-406 cultivator. Look on the NH parts web site for a 13-151 tool bar rear cultivator, they show a pretty good drawing of it. If you still need more info or measurements send me an e-mail and I can send some info.[I never did figure out how to post pics on here]

Lots of different sizes of tool bars. Smaller ones
like 2" should almost be solid for use behind a
4000, unless you're only going to be doing light
work. I cut a damaged 4-row A-C corn planter down to
2 rows that used a 2" solid toolbar...on edge. Had
U-bolts that looked like V's to hold the brackets to
the bar. The 4 row cultivator I had used a 4"x6"
tool bar, with the 3-point brackets and parallel
linkage held on with large, squared off U-bolts.

I have exactly what you are looking for, 6' long built by Ford with the mounts built in and with 3 shanks that I would sell cheap. It is the rear unit from the 2 row cultivator for a Ford 700 tractor. Only problem is you are on other side of country from me here in Ohio.

Thanks for your help guys. Catskill had what I was looking for. I will check to see what the price is from the dealer than see if I can build one on the cheap.

I am pretty handy with a cutting torch and welder.

After posting this I got to really thinking this I may have most of this thing built. Some time back I built a trailer hitch for the tractor that used inserts as is on most pickups. So all I may have to build is the ripper part.

What I want this for is to rip up the ground around the property to give me a defense-able fire break.

I should have been doing this years ago but have not. After this past dry year I will be doing it.

I made one years ago with a 5 foot square tube.Bought 5 spring cultivator shanks and brackets and shovels.I used it in place of a harrow.The shanks can be mounted along the bar.Made an A frame of flat stock.Cost 125.00 for steel and shanks.Steel cost a lot less back then.The square tube was the major cost.
