Default Cultipackers

Good read on using a cultipacker.

I get in a hurry and don't always use mine. However, about to get mine ready for the next 3 days.

Cultipacker is an essential food plot tool in my opinion, even if you subscribe to the throw n mow theory and do not do any form of mechanical tillage. It puts the seed in contact with ground. There’s a hundred ways to do it, but a cultipacker just works, and it’s simple.

I started using one of these about 3 years ago.

In the right conditions it is amazing. Good in most conditions. Horrible in a few situations, such as wet clay soils or bunching soils (like buckshot mud soils). My travel speed is much slower but because I’m doing everything in one pass I’m between 2 and 4 times faster than a traditional 2-3 passes with disc, then spread, then cover. I plant at about an acre an hour with it in untouched ground from the prior season. Double that if the ground has been broken a day or week before planting. Since I’m usually a one man operation (hunting camp help always sucks) it counts as a good purchase. If I had asses to put in tractor seats at will it wouldn’t make sense to spend the money on it though.

I’d like to make a cultipacker. I’ve been looking for the right parts to build one. I love to have one of those like you have cynical but they are pretty proud of them!!

I bought an old one off craigslist and turned it into an 8' and a 5'. Made the ATV one so you could flip it but it shredded the tires, so I took them off.

You can get decent results dragging chainlink over seed thrown onto disked soil, but we saw germination rates really increase once we started cultipacking. Especially with clover.
