The Optional Features were:
- Frame Design.
A 4-row frame design for superior shank spacing patterns guaranteed you non-stop, no plug performance. The rugged 3.5" tubular frame had all the frame gusseting required to ensure years of trouble-free performance in the toughest conditions.
The tubular hitches were built to handle the extra load of tow-behind implements. Sturdy wing hitches prevented cultivator wing sweep back.
- Wheel Assemblies.
The wheel assemblies utilized standard Bourgault component which were designed to handle the heavy load in the field and in transport. The heavy-duty, greaseable 5,000 lb. hubs, spindles and bearings had a triple lip bearing seal system to prevent contamination. All walking axle pivot hubs had greaseable self-sealing Timken bearings for a long life.
- Penetration Capability and Precise Depth Control
With the Bourgault spring cushion assembly, penetration is accomplished in the most severe soil conditions. The weight of the cultivator was also sufficient to provide the back-up to the total combined spring cushion initial tension and knife penetration capability. The level of floatation on each model also prevented the cultivator from being drawn below the desired depth.
You had a choice of two spring cushions... both were backed by more than a decade of field testing as well as a combination of features which made them outstanding.
Both spring cushion assemblies had a single wear point. That wear point had a nylatron bushing which required no greasing and was exceedingly resistant to wear. When wear inevitably occurs, simply replace the bushing and the pivot bolt and the spring cushion is completely reconditioned.
