Is a Morris CP-750 a good cultivator?

I was wondering if anyone has run a Morris CP750 cultivator and had any comments on how well they worked. Rather than a walking beam axle for the wheels they put two wheels space out side by side for the main frame. I was wondering if that would work better in mud when trying to cultivate sloughs. A big problem in mud is keeping the tires turning as the mud builds up around them. There is no gauge wheels out front like a lot of the bigger cultivators. Could a person run a consitant depth with them or were tHey poor for depth control?

Barn
it's not actually a cultivator .. with twelve inch spacing .. the CP stands for chisel plow ...
If it's the first one, not bad ... the second series [Magnum two] is better for the trips lasting ..
both clean in mud, well, fair, not super great .. good with two inch spikes ..

If you want a Morris nothing older than a Magnum II and the later ones with the trip adjusting bolt at the bottom NOT the ones with the adjusting nuts on the top of the trip.
You should be able to tell the age of the machine from the trip top casting, the year was cast there and also stamped on the underside of the shanks.
Morris chisel plows are a little lighter framed and sometimes have trouble penetrating especially with large 16'' sweeps.

The hydraulic depth system is terrible. The cylinders are in series so all the cylinders need to be kept in top shape or keeping an even depth across the machine will be impossible.
