|Kind of in the market for a different cultivator. local dealer has a 48' 1010 very reasonable and i'm a bit interested in it. so what can you tell me about them. i know that the shanks can get loose on them but there are replacable bushings in there. what else shoud i look at. how is trash flow? |
18c ditch system
|I had a 1010, it is the flat food type... I had frame cracks up the but..... did you look at the frame... I had a 980 that was very good..|
|We used to have (we it's sitting back in the trees for projects) a 54' 1050 which I think it a little bit newer? Or is it just bigger? Anyway we did not use it for long since that frame was way too light we were always welding on it. Trash clearance is terrible since they were really made for plowed ground. It did not level very good. I guess it got of by for a few years until we found something better.|
|I havent looked at it yet. figured i'd get the good, bad, and ugly first. our air seeder uses a 1060, and it hasent given many problems. a couple welds on the wings is about it, but its only 32 feet. thanks for the info.|

Have a 28' does a good job on clean ground. Haven't had problems frame breaking. Bought it for under
2 grand has a 3 bar harow and hitch for a rollling harrow.
There was no such thing as a 48' 1010, or a 32' 1060, for that matter.
The biggest 1010 was 42.5' The smallest 1060 was 48.5'. A cultivator the age of a 1010 48' wide would be a 1050, and one the age of a 1060 but 32' wide would be a 960.
We have a 1050 which has always been a good tool, but it's no longer applicable to current practices because of trash clearance. We rebuilt it last winter, adding a bar to the front and rearranging the shanks for more clearance plus replacing the worn out Deere shanks with K shanks. After a year of use, I consider the project a success. We hope to find another one to do this winter.
|thanks for the info. i think i'll just go to the dealer and take a look for my self. are a 1050, and a 1060 similar except for width? i saw in your wanted ad you mentioned something about timkin walking tandems on a 1060, care to elaborate on the differences. why can these cultivators be found for 2 to 3 thousand? just sounds too cheap. it sure is tough to justify buying a used wil-rich quad-5 when i could make due with one of these. thanks again, i'm learning something today |
The Original Lock Springs Rver Rat
|I had a 30' 1010 years ago,it broke up in no time.The 1000 which was built in an earlier time was a good cultivator.|
|porbably needs all new wheel brgs and walker brgs or at least cleaned and packed. Don't forget tires which always seem to be rotten. We had some frame breakage on ours but never rebroke the original breaks. Hyd hoses gotta be close to done. True you can re do the shanks but never lasted very long on the ones we did. Stretched some of the shanks for some reason but not many. Trash clearance is not good. We had problems getting the cylinders to stay in phase on our big one so it never did a very good job leveling. You will spend some more money getting it in shape and that adds to the costs but you might think it is worth it.|
|I had a 1010 and added a row in front and stubs to make a second row in the tongue frame never had it plug agian|
1050 was built from sometime in the mid '70's until the late '80s, when it was replaced by the 1060. Both were available in 48.5, 54.5, and 60.5 feet of width. The 1060 had marginally greater trash clearance, and used 47o sweeps which is pretty well the industry standard, vs the 41o on the earlier models. The 1000 and 1010 were contemporary to the 1050, and the 960 was contemporary to the 1060. The 1050 was essentially a 1000 with a second fold and associated strengthening. The 1060 is pretty much a newer 1050, but the 960 went to over-center folding. The early 1050s had shell bearings in the walking tandems, which were replaced by tapered roller bearings sometime around '82 or so. The shell bearings don't last very long, especially on wide, heavier cultivators. They are cheap because they do not have very much trash clearance (fore/aft), the shanks do not have very much tip pressure, and they are getting old. I would expect almost any 1050 to need it's shanks replaced, because ours were shot and it was a pretty late model and we did not farm terrible amounts of acres when we used it. The 1050 is basically a 3 row cultivator except for shanks moved to the front around the wheels. The 1060 is maybe a 4 row...actually I think it's still a 3 but it has more shanks moved out around the wheels then the 1050 does.
|The 1060 has over-center fold, there are latches to keep the outer wings tight against the inner when it goes over center. The 1060 also had a little stouter hinge and the mount for the outer wing fold cylinder on the smaller ones was a little better, as it was longer for more leverage. I think the 1060 also had a larger beam for the hitch. I had a 48' and added a 4th bar and spaced things out. It helped, but still not a trash eater. Also, late model 1050's use the same 47 degree sweeps as the 1060. You are right about the shanks, anything of that age is probably shot unless it had the shank protectors. My 1060 lost (broke) a couple where the shank was worn just above the sweep.|
|thanks for the history guys. should have done a search on tracktor house first. it was easy to see that i should have been asking about the 1050. think i'll take a look at it next time i get down that way. see if its shot or not. thanks again |
|plowboy do you have any pictures of the 1050 that you rearranged the teeth on? I have debated doing this on mine but was unsure if it would be worth the hassle.|
I don't think I have any pictures of it. We used it for several years. One of the wings hinges broke three or four years ago, it got retrieved out of the field and moved to a spot behind the shop where it still sits awaiting a sufficient priority to get it fixed.
