Thanks for the replies so far.
Unless I rig up something, I need both remotes as the FM has a cylinder for each side. With my farm, I NEED the ability to lift each side independent for point rows in irregular fields. orbital motors are out.
I also thought of electric, but these are the 200+ pound hoppers, so I'd need a motor strong enough to turn augers through 600 + pounds of fertilizer. Maybe the Gandys could run off electric, but there will be 7 units on a 6 row. they're currently set up to run off a ground drive wheel. I'd need 7 motors or to run them off a jackshaft and one large motor.

The cultivator is a John deere FM 6row30", made from 1973 into the 80's. The tractor is a 4010 diesel.

Some ideas and concerns:

Hydraulic would be probably the most effective way. If the tractor is a 4010 and you are already using both remotes, you could rig in an extra circuit much like some of the discussions on here about mounting loaders.

You would need two motors one for each side.

A PTO powered hyd pump may be a good way... it would be separate of the tractor hydraulics.

A concern: Is the FM cultivator going to handle full fertilizer boxes hung on it??? Especially when you get sick of filling every 3 acres and build extentions?

Why not put the fertilizer down with a spreader in one pass (quick) and then come back and cultivate it in?
