Wyoming, all the tools are over to one side because it's the only way I can get it into tight spaces without tearing out tree roots or walkways. The toolbar is 8' wide. And yes, you are right. They do get bent but it seems mostly from hooking into a tree root or from making a pivoting brake turn and putting a side load on them. I removed the sweep to make sure I had it for when it would do the most good.

Houlibar,
I took another look at your pics and it doesn't appear that your toolbars can be mounted other than the way they are. So...looks like you are stuck with no options. I had hoped that the toolbars could be offset to the right, but you have permanent mounts at the 3-way so that isn't an option. Probably not worth the time and effort to make a sliding mount for them now that the toolbars are already bent. You are also probably not going to experience much of a problem as long as the tools attached are as small as the chisel points. Best of luck with your hemp crop!

Here is a set of gauge wheels I made for my landscape rake. Oh, I made the rake too.

Nice work on the rake and gauge wheels MadRef! I like how you built the wheels to caster.

Wyoming, the toolbar (cultivator) isn't bent. Though you have me worried dude! It's the shanks on the chisel point tools that get bent backward from hooking tree roots or sideways if I turn sharp with the plow down. Today I broke one of the clamps that hold the chisel shanks, d'oh! Another welding job! Clamps and chisel shanks are 'consumables' for this job. Now the cultivator toolbar on the other hand is a priceless antique, LOL!
