Since I never purchased a Dirt Devil type cultivator I've used my Box Blade some times. By dropping the rippers max and tilting up the box itself max, I can bust up the top 5-8 inches at the end of the garden season. The Dirt Devil type attachment would work better, but I'm running out of money and space to park another attachment.

Cheers,
Mike

I did the same thing for a few years with the boxblade rippers. Then we started adding heaps of compost, upwards of 1-foot high. Well, the rippers just didn't work as nice as a disc harrow. The rippers took a few hours, the disc harrow about 15mins.

Nothing wrong with using what you got. Sure you could do a “better” job with a field cultivator or tiller but like you said that’s another implement and more money. Looking good in your picture.

He could pull a 6x8 fence behind the rippers. This would help grade it nicely to break up the clumps. This is a cheap thing to do. I did just that. With a cable, you don't have to leave the seat.
