We cultivated peanuts exclusively with front mounted cultivators using B's and an H. We used points on the front and sweeps behind the wheels unless circumstances dictated otherwise. The point hoes were spaced so all the soil was turned, and the sweeps in the rear got the remaining weeds, as their roots were compromised by the front shanks. Did well for decades and I still use this system in my garden. We have an assortment of shovels and half-shovels to use in front as needed also. The half-shovels are left and right sided and go on either side of the row.

I saw the half sweeps and think I may give this a try. Minimize up close damage but get good weed kill. Thanks.

That's what the 1/2 sweeps are for.

Thanks Jim. I think this is the way I am going to go. I have only cultivated with Farmall Super A's, Super C's, and Cubs before and none of them ran sweeps, all double points so this is new to me. I saw Deere has some of the cheapest prices on all the sweeps so I think I may go with them. Any idea if they are good quality? Thanks again.

I have no idea on JD's sweep quality. Way back when I stood behind a JD parts counter and sold new sweeps they were very good.
