    It's still cheap, mine are 8.95 each, I have 42 of them.
    They only get replaced when one falls off AND I don't see it, 1-2 a year, I think, maybe 3 or 4.

    Hey Guys, Maybe You Could Help Me Out. I Just Found An Old Salsco 30-6, 30-6s, Or 30-12. I'm Really Not Sure Which One Because Someone Told Me They Think That's What It Looked Like To Them. Do Any Of You No Anything About This Machine? It Is Powered By A 5 Hp Briggs And Is 30'' Wide.the Tines Are Powered By Large 8'' Springs That Are Located In The Front Of The Unit.and Boy This Sucker Is Heavy.

    I made the mistake of paying something like $10 a tine last fall:hammerhead: Next time they get replaced, I will buy them online!

    Want to ask about the cheap Mantis cultivator. They have to Aerator tine which is basically a slit tine that cut lines on the lawn. Do you think they will do a half way decent job?
