Who has a Brinly Tool Bar with hillers, either factory or home made?  I need pics and ideas.

 

I bought a Brinly Tool Bar at an auction with four furrowers and their clamps.  I need a hiller for my potatoes next year.  What did the original hillers look like?  Did they have a 3/4" shank, too?  Did the shanks bend in clay, or did they hold up?

 

Thanks

They had the same size shank but used a bearing on the end with one of there disc blades.Looks like the hard part to me would be keeping them turned the way you wanted them with that round shaft looks like it would try to move.I will look and see if I have pics of mine

Does anyone have any fresh thoughts on using a Brinly toolbar or cultivator as a potato hiller?

 

I would like to find or make something like this guy has on his cultivator.

I can bend and drill the 3/4 round stock, but I want to find something like the wings to bolt or weld on.

I think it would do just fine. Trying to think of what could be used for the 'wings'! :reading_the_manual:

That should give you enough information if you want to 'roll your own', buy a part of two, or just buy the whole thing.
