Text Box: Cultivators

Perhaps the Rock Island Plow Company should have been called the Rock Island Cultivator Company due to the fact that if any one implement was more prominent in Rock Islands lineup, it was the cultivator. Although they never produced a tractor mounted cultivator, the sheer variety of offerings over the years is nearly as staggering as their plow selection. These implements were also well regarded, winning as many awards as Rock Islands signature plows.
