Duckfoot cultivator consists of a box type steel rectangular frame, rigid tines and sweeps. The sweeps are triangular in shape similar to foot of duck, hence called duckfoot cultivator. The sweeps are made from old leaf spring steel and joined to tines with fasteners, which makes them replaceable after being worn out or becoming dull. The tines are made of mild steel flat and forged to shape. It is a tractor-mounted implement and depth of operation is controlled by hydraulic system. The cultivator is popular in black cotton soils. Sweeps are attached to these tines. Three-point linkage of the tractor is attached to the implement. The implement is mostly used for shallow ploughing and in hard soils.
