Sunflower 5135 Cultivator: 36' 6" to 42' 6" View Specs
Three-Section Flexibility With Reduced Transport Heights - Sunflower now offers the 5135 Field Cultivator in a split wing configuration. The 5135 Split Wing Series features a three-section design with a reduced overall folded height. As a result, you can now transport a 36'-42' three section field cultivator with a maximum overall transport height of 13' 6".
Mechanical linkages hold the split wing rigid during field operations making a true three-section machine but allows for a five section type fold for low transport height.
The A-Frame tongue design which adds tremendous support to the center section frame to withstand the rotational forces generated by the heavy point load shanks and the combined weight of these multi-section tools when folded for transport.
Single Point Depth Control
Single point depth control is conveniently located for easy adjustments and offers accuracy up to ¼".
Sweep Depth Gauge
A sweep depth gauge is standard equipment on the 5056 series. The easy to read gauge is an effective reference to set the depth of operation of the tool.
Walking tandems with large tires are standard on all sections, enabling the machine to follow the ground contour precisely, maintaining a more consistent sweep depth. Walking tandems are placed near the outer ends of the wings for optimum depth control to eliminate gouging wings and frame bounce.
Spring Cushion Shanks
With 25 inches of under frame clearance the 5/8 inch thick, 190 pound point load shanks on a 5 bar cultivator placement provide optimum trash flow.
S-tine 160 pound point load shanks are also available if rocks and stones are not present and the heavier Spring Tension Shanks are not necessary.
Self leveling hitch maintains a level frame from front-to-rear regardless of operating depth.
