TSC had a sale going on and I got $10.00 off on a middlebuster. They are predicting snow tonight into tomorrow so no telling when I can try it out there is still ABOUT A FOOT OF FROST IN THE GROUND.

Odd.  It's been right side up from the start.  I saw shortly after it was posted, didn't have anything to say, but it was upright then.

Yep your right' it is upside down on my Ipad too? Don'T know why or how to change it? I took the picture with the Ipad. emailed it to myself. Downloaded it to the PC and then downloaded it to Photobucket. Then posted it from Photobucket. i have been using the PC since and never thought about it beiing upside down? Funny thing is I did the same in the grading the lane thread and it seems to be fine.

I just use the iPad to upload it. The picture I post was a screen shot from my iPad. The pictures I take with either the iPod or iPad upload to the cloud and or on my Mac automatically.

I plan to use it for laying the rows for planting, going to try using it for hilling and digging. Who knows what else i will think of to use it for? Wish i had enoug horseradish to use it for that, I guess i will use the spade for that.

I need to go look at one of those. The mount is what I need for a pattern for a 3-point to sleeve adapter. Have fun digging up the yard with it, JD.

When I had the gilson rear tine tiller I had a simular shoe to fit it. At that time i would average 600 hills of potatoes a year.
I dug the furrows to plant and hilled them all with it.

I need one of those, but much smaller for my Sears. I actually bought a shoe, just waiting to find that right piece of scrap to make frame for it.

Yes The one I had on the Gilson was about 6" wide, but it moved plenty of dirt and saved hours of hoe work!  I'm sure you will like yours once you get it set up. Do you have a top link on your Sears? You might need one to set the pitch of the shoe so it digs like you want.  Adjustment of the pitch of implements is the beautiful thing about a 3 point hitch.  I have twoTop links with different lengths and one or the other works best depending on the implement I'm using.

They are about the least expensive implement you can buy and one of the most versitle.  Once the Frost is out I think I will try using it to plow the garden, before I run the tiller. Try to loose the hard pan below where the tiller ran the last couple years for drainage.

I see the Subsoiler they sell looks to be the same with a smaller shoe. The Guy at TSC said they thought the shoe would fit but had never tried interchanging.  I may find an old Leaf Spring and make a narrower shoe for this. For some tough jobs.

 I know in some parts of the country  This thing is called a Lister Plow and is used for plowing.
