Features

Single Cylinder Depth Control
Single cylinder depth control guarantees accurate depth control, achieved by eliminating the leakage that occurs between hydraulic cylinders in series. The result is dependable accuracy in the field where it counts. Standard on models 5550 and 7450.

Quick Wing Levelers
To ensure accurate depth is achieved, the levelness of the toolbar is crucial. Farm King has designed their cultivators so that a single person can level the wing sections side to side by extending or contracting these quick wing levelers.

Castor Wheels
The castering axle rides on a nylon graphite wear washer for long life and smooth castering. Fork style front casters tend to plug with mud and crop residue build up due to limited space between the tires and each piece supporting it. The Farm King L-shaped caster reduces this problem by 50% and allows for easy removal of wheel and tire if required.

Tandem Walking Axles
Each walking axle provides for uniform working depth by averaging out field variations. They also assist in preventing accumulation of mud and crop residue between wheels while maintaining desired shank spacing for maximum residue flow.

Wheel Hub Seals
Protecting wheel bearings in a dust filled environment can be a challenging task. Farm King’s hub sealing system is designed specifically for this situation. A triple lip seal is fixed to the spindle, while the seal cup positioned in the hub turns. The result is a longer life of operation and the ability to grease without pushing the seal out.

Front to Rear Leveling
Front to rear leveling is accomplished quickly and easily with adjustable pusharms connected to the rockshaft.

Full Floating Hitch
All 5550/ 7450 and 6000 Series implements feature a full floating hitch. Designed to move up or down with the tractor, the floating hitch allows the implement to maintain a constant working depth when crossing over hills or through low spots. Each front caster wheel is linked mechanically to the rockshaft to form a parallel lift system which allows the implement to maintain a consistent front-to-back level at any working depth.
