Disc-TypePotatoHiller.jpgI am needing a toolbar for my Ford. I have found a couple TOOLBAR SETS but they are in the Carolinas or Louisianna. The $250 freight charges push them out of my budjet.

I am looking for ideas as to where I CAN BUY HILLING DISCS closer to IOWA. sO I can build a toolbar.

There is the "Kolpin" tool bar at Northern Tool.

I would have thought Tractor Supply would have something, but apparently not.

I looked at the Everything Attatchments tool bar and if I lived with 1000 miles the ppd/frt deal would be great however i'm 1080 miles out.

Stevens Tractor Parts in Louisianna frt charges are about the same.

If I can't find the disc's closer, I'll order from AgriSupply and build the toolbar. As you say the freight on the discs only should not be extreme.

I did find cultivator shanks and shovels/sweeps at the local farm supply

Those hilling discs look like they could be built out of a pair of old harrow discs and some scrap iron for the handles. A tool bar could be made from an old reese hitch frame and more scrap bars. The money you would save could pay for the welder. Good Luck, Rick

I hope you find some closer, JD. When you do the tool bar, I'll be lurking as I want one for my new 3-point on the FF!

I think the discs turn, so you'd need a solid axle and bearing set-up.

Howard is right the discs are cupped like a harrow disc but rotates on a hub and works much like a disc plow. Here is a picture of one from Everything Attatchments. This one is 48" and the one i want is 60". and runs around $600 bucks+ shipping.

$60 worth of steel, couple hours for cutting and welding and paint. I dont $600 in that tool bar. Any body else notice the cat 1 pins in th bottom holes and the cat 0 pins in the top?

I sure did not notice the pin difference. I have Cat 1 on the Ford and sure want everything standard.

  I was just down to the junk pile and knew I had a length of heavy angle iron. I was thinking it was about 3 ft long.

I was wrong it will trim out at 60 " and is 3"X3 1/2" and 1/4" thick. Looks like that's a place to start.

All right! Another build thread coming up!

You Know I have re-thought that  duel pin size  thing and it's really a clever idea. By using both size pins The Cat O size would work on Super Gt's and some the smallest Compacts sometimes are Cat O, Yet gives you the Cat 1 for the larger Compacts..More utility for the price of a couple pins could be a bargain?  A 48" toolbar would work equally well for both sizes. And would work fine on my 1500(its 47.3" outside the rear tires) except for one thing. My Wife wants to do a variation on the "Square Foot Gardening " Concept and wants 4 ft beds. I think I need a 5 ft Sweep to make 4 ft Beds, so am going to 60"(5 ft).

Now that you have pointed it out, sure I notice! :rolling:

 

Looks like they just put the pins in the wrong holes for that picture.
