"I remember cultivating corn for hours with a Farmall H. Ron MN"

The one thing I remember the Farmalls with the belly pump and
cultivators having over everyone else was the delay for the rear lift.
Get to the end of the row, lift the lever while driving, the front set
lifted and a second or two later the aft ones lifted. Covered all your
tracks without you having to stop or try. Great once you got used to it.

Don't want the delay? Move the rear hose to the other rear outlet.
One was delayed, the other was not. Not sure how they did it.
That's just how I remember my H and M working.

Looks like that Pony is a keeper. It sounds good and did a nice job with the cultivators . Thanks for the video.

I realize everyone does things differently but here is something that might help you. First, lay your rows off using only the rear plows and the rear plows should be adjusted so that they trail right in the center of the rear tires. Once the first row is laid off, use the furrow created by the rear plows in the previous row to align the tractors tires for the next row. This keeps your rows straight and maximizes the number of rows in the garden. When the garden is planted, you can lower the front plows and tractor will just follow in the furrows previously laid off. You should continue to lower the rear plows while cultivating to keep furrows from filling up with the loose dirt created by the front plows. All this assumes that front and rear plows can be lifted independently of each other similar to the Farmall Super A.
The biggest benefit of this method is that it prevents the constant steering adjustments that have to be made trying to keep your row straight and not plow up the plants while cultivating. Basically, you are using the furrow created by the rear plows to always line up the tractor tires on the row. If this is done correctly, you can actually turn the steering wheel loose while cultivating and not have to make the constant steering adjustments. Hope this helps. I have used this method for many years with Farmall Super A.

When I cultivated corn, over 50 years ago, we went fast enough to throw the dirt against the corn
from each side so we covered up the weeds in the row and not the corn.
The corn planter didn't hill the row.
Cultivator also had metal plates on each side to control how much dirt was sent into the row.

Thanks for the advice...... First year trying to cultivate. Did the hills with a Farmall Cub. Wanted to try the pony, but will use the cub for the rest! Unfortunately the cultivators are up or down....can't raise front and back separate

That looks great Kevin.
I don't remember your soil being that rocky.
My uncle had a garden spot that was so rocky, I use to kid him that he was stoning the weeds to death.
He had a big dozer try to remove one rock in the middle of his garden.
That big rock is still in the middle of that garden.
