The real name for what you have in the pic. is; "spring toothed Harrow". Lots of those around, but NEVER heard them called Quackers.

ok, its called a quacker around here because it is primarily used to pull the quack grass up after plowing and discing. excellent tool when used correctly.

replacement c tines available from kraftimplement.com

Yes, I pulled up there & dropped it for the pic. That was last summer right in the middle of the drought, ground was like concrete.

I've got some video using the disk back in late winter, but don't have a site to upload it. With the weight on it penetration is great.

The implement behind the tree is a nine-shank tiller. Here's a better pic:

Not sure who made it, or when, but the design is just about identical to the Dearborns & Fergusons.

Arther;
Peanut butter & banana sandwiches?? Now, that I've heard of.!!! Don't eat'em myself, but my wife does.
Anyway, as Jeff said, Nice looking rig you've got there, and if you paid $35 for that harrow, you did not buy it, you stole it from the guy!! The harrows they sell, similar to the one you have, now days are going for $215, and that is the cheap ones. You made a good deal!!! Makes for a nice field of plants too.
"Spring tooth harrow", "C" tooth cultivetor, what ever anyone calls them, They work good!!!
NOW, we all know! {:-)

gb, lonestar:

thanks for the compliments on the rig.
i certainly don't know what i would do without that quacker. i originally put an ad in the paper for a scraper blade. a guy called so we went to look at one. he "mentioned" a quacker in the weeds so i went to look but didn't show much interest. walked away. then went back 5 mins. later and he said he would take $35 for it and it included the top link. i said ok. i gave the top link to my brother cuz i had one already.
sometimes you find deals and sometimes not. kraft implement has the "C" tine replacements. i need two.
i also paid $250 for a dearborn "economy" plow with coulters and scrapers. that plow was hardly ever used. works great. i only need my own disc now and they are very hard to find. the 8n is sprayed silver on the tin which i don't like but since the motor rebuild this spring i am thinking of painting the whole thing now.
