I have a pretty big veggie garden that is pretty productive, but this year the weeds took some of the fun out of it for me. I was committed to trying a cover crop, but I only have a tiller attchment & not any type of plow, which I anticipate I'll need with something like winter rye.
There was a sleeve hitch for the LGTs, but they seem rare and expensive. Also, I don't weld & don't think I can afford to have someone fab something up either.
But, the LGT sleeve hitches were a simple design. The solution I'm kicking around is a wooden sleeve hitch with something like a middle buster, or a couple small chisel sweeps bolted directly onto the sleeve hitch. Some 2x4, plywood for support against twisting, and axle bolts should get me going with the lift bar for my tiller doing the lifting.
If I do it right, it should also be able to hold some weight for if/when we get snow.
My concerns are:
1. Wood is a stupid idea.
2. 10 hp is not enough to plow.
I'm open to ideas and comments....
