This cultivator – with a hitch for animal traction – is an equipment used for scarifying, earthing-up, soil harrowing and, specially, to eliminate weeds. The hoes have several shapes, each one for a different purpose; the winged weeder is used to eliminate weeds, while the grub hoe is used to scarify and scratch the soil. The plow hoe is used to furrow, while the fork hoe is used to scratch the soil and perform the sowing process of the annual crops.
On 1928, an Italian immigrant family founded the Narciso Baldan & Irmãos Company on the City of Matão, State of São Paulo. That was the beginning of what eventually became Baldan Implementos Agrícolas S/A., a company that manufactures products for crops and soils. On 1952, Baldan family manufactured the first national harrow discs, the approximated date of manufacture of this cropper.
