Thank you very much to everyone for your comments. Seems like a variety of responses, maybe a few more prefer the IH with S tines, so I think I'll buy that one.

I have a couple of more questions;

When is the right time to cultivate early?
How tall should the corn be? Or About how long after planting should you do the first cultivation?

It's passed that now, but thinking of next year.

Also, how heavy is a 4 row IH 183 with Danish tines?
I'd like to put it on a small trailer that I have, to bring it home, and I hope it's not too heavy for the trailer.

Thank you,

The first time to cultivate is when the corn is 2" tall and with the rolling fenders even with the danish tines and still go slow so you do not throw too much dirt, second time when corn is 6" tall and then if the tines do not throw to much clumpy dirt you can take the fenders off as long as you are not covering the stalks, third and last time hopefully would be when the corn just fits under tractor and cultivator without dammage. Depending on weeds you may have to do a 4th cultivation that would be between second and layby or last cultivation. And you do nee to big guide disks on a rear mount cultivator. Started with rear mount, then front mount 2 row then front mount 4 row, then rear mount 4 row and went back to the 4 row front mount.
