Beet and/or banana knifing shanks are single offset staggered fork units with 6″ ID spacing between the knives.
APPLICATION: The staggered fork configuration on the Beet Knife Shank Holder provides more room for shedding of trash and weed foliage between knives which in turn aids in the prevention of “dragging” out crops. Allows beet and/or banana knives to be mounted on existing cultivator bars with a single clamp. See our Flat Shank Clamp below.
