I'm not sure everyone understood my post. I still think the range of ground speeds did not adequately cover the range from "very slow" to "faster". I am thinking specifically about SA & SC tractors. I've probably spent as many hours cultivating with a SC as anyone on this post. And, yes, I've cultivated in all, three lower gears. But, 1st gear, for example, was/is entirely too fast for very small plants, even with the shields down to the dirt line.

The shallow cultivating I did with a vegetable cultivator had next to no need for power, I ran 1/3-1/2 throttle I think in 2nd, this was an H, and did not have a problem with speed. For early cultivation we used "knives" which throw little soil, could leave maybe a 4 inch or less strip, next to the plants, the rest of the area used normal sweeps -- You can't use normal sweeps close to the small plants that throw a lot of dirt at any speed. Low speed with a vegetable cultivator was never a problem--I think you have the wrong sweeps if you are burying everything. Another way is to cut one wing off the sweeps, I seldom used that.
