Hi Kristi. You mentioned that the manuals are not in our archives. Did you check out our Manuals / Implements / Cultivators library (see red menu bar at top of screen)? We have both the owner's manual and dealer parts book for the N-KO-21 cultivator there that you can download.

I don't know for sure, but suspect that your cultivator has been "farmer-ized" by someone adding the seed and fertilizer hoppers to the top of the tool bar that holds the shanks/shovels, etc. This was done with Dearborn cultivators (Ford's product) that were very much like the Ferguson cultivators. You can look at the manuals for the Dearborn 13-1 rigid shank cultivator to see the similarities between the two.

Your cultivator is a Category-1 implement, which identifies the diameter of the pins that attach to the tractor's lift arms. Any tractor with a 3-point lift and Category-1 lift arms (or Category-2 lift arms with adapter bushings installed) can be used with your cultivator/planter.

Even if you find the seed/fertilizer hoppers are too rusted out to use, you could easily convert this back to just a field cultivator by finding another Ferguson or Ford/Dearborn cultivator and cannibalizing the parts to make a complete implement, and discarding the parts for the seeding/fertilizing. The type you have is very useful - can be used to cultivate row crops or rejuvenate pastures for your sheep and more. I would not discard it without learning more. A complete unit will typically go for around $350 at local farm auctions here in Virginia.

Hope this helps..............Ed
