Homemade cultipacker from QDMA
« on: April 15, 2009, 05:31:55 PM »
Has anyone made the "Home made" cultipacker that is in the QMDA forum?

I was wondering if 5 foot or 6 foot is better for pulling with a ATV?

seems to me that 5 feet would be max for an ATV and 4 foot would be better, but depends on your ATV size and the soil you are working with. I'm going to have to check out the plans now

If I get a chance, I think I will attempt to make the 5 foot model.  I am the manager for a stamping company's R&D dept., so I should be able to get someone to weld it for me.  I will start looking for the rollers around my home town to see if I can save on the shipping cost.  I will let you know if I make one this spring.  Wonder if there would be a market and what people are willing to pay for someone to make these?

Can you post a link?  I would be interested in checking that thing out.

Thanks

Great site for info on building your own cultipacker, gave me some good ideas. I'm thinking of making mine attaching it to a box blade, I think all I will will need is to configure how to mount the axle and bearing, should be fairly simple, the frame is already built. Will find out later. Thanks for the thread, great idea.

I just use my ATV AS the cultipacker. Ride back and forth over the plot....1 less piece of equipment to buy/make/maintain/ and lug into the woods. goes 2x as fast if daughter is with me since she can ride 1 side of the plot and I ride the other!

I would say the 5 footer because of the weight issue. But I would love to see what you have came up with please share.

I have used a plastic 55 gal barrel about 1/2 full of water in the past...just used the brush guard to push it...but I will admit my foodplots are all planted on old logging roads..long but narrow, so it was just as easy to ride em. Sorry I'm a cheapskate lol

As much as it pains me to post this (I had this idea for years, but didn't have the money or connections to produce them) I thought you may want to try this one that can be picked up by one person then filled with water or sand when you get to your destination. This would also allow you to adjust the wieght to your soil conditions. It's only $349 and then you could save some time by not having to build one too.

I saw that post thread on qdma and it set me off on a marathon surfing expedition. I found a small shop online cultipackerstore.com that was really helpful @--0--0133

Here is the one I am talking about. They are 4' wide. They have 8 footers for those prices, but those were made for tractors and are not made for ATV's.
