There are a lot of rocks here it is Newengland. Do the 9 shanks have springs or are they fixed tines?

They made them both ways but most of them you find are the spring loaded shanks. Ferguson was a 9BO Tiller, Ford called theirs a Field Cultivator but it was the same plow. There are companys that make brand new versions of those plows to this day. I think Fred Cain is one of the companies that still make them if you can't find a good used one. If you look a few threads down for my plowing comparision thread you can see the ground I plowed with one compared to a moldboard plow and my disc plow. They are a very handy plow to have you can work up new ground, you can spread the spacing out and cultivate with it, it leaves the soil in good shape and doesn't compact it like a disc does.

Good to know. I did find them in all sizes. I just can not seem to find one near Mass. I will keep looking. I like they way they seem to work and I think it will be a good fit here.

would the 5 shank be a good option if I can not find a 9 shank?

I don't think the 5 shank would cover your wheel tracks or you would have to spread the shanks so far apart that it wouldn't do a good job plowing. Early Ferguson tillers were 7 shank so they would be ok.

I am going to look for one of those. I think the 9 shank may a be a little big for the areas i need to work beside the garden. The 5 shank does look a little small.
