The 5-tine cultivator is a tool for loosening the soil.
Once fastened to the hoe, it is used on hardened topsoil to remove late-stage weeds. This tool is mainly used for weeding footpaths. This cultivator is also suitable for uprooting the remains of crops after harvesting.
The 5-tine cultivator can also be used for breaking up the earth deep down and over a greater width than that of the three-tine cultivator.
