O.K. I posted a new topic in the implement forum. ALC mentioned pinning it in the walk behind forum but, I don't know how to do that.

Mounted the hilling sweeps fromt eh Tri-Trac on the 600's shanks , didn't do much better , tried mounting  another set of hilling sweeps  in front of them ,that was just a little better. Maybe hilling discs would work on a walk behind ?

Moderators can do that.

I'm sure they would, but you might try resetting the sweeps.
My limited experience is that you need a lot of overlap to get a cumulative effect unless they are the big ones.
Empire made the ones on our planter/ hiller. It works great.

well one could go old school and use a set of disc gangs like a Handiman There were a limited amount of companies that made disc setups for hilling. seems to me there were 3 disc units for the Simplicity walkers, that fit on a cultivator bar, and I'm sure Bolens had something similar.

Last night I searched for disc hiller for walk behind and found a few out there . I will try over lapping , or make extensions like on the Troy Bilt furrower  . I have one of these and the extensions are only heavy gauge sheet metal .  Guess once the dirt is loose it doesn't need to be very thick or harden steel to form it up around the plants

When I had the Gilson rear tine tiller, it had a sweep just like a middle buster sweep only about 8-10 inches.
It worked pretty well by running between the rows an pushing the soil up on each side.
It was probably one of the best features on that tiller.
I could never hold bearings in the speed control group. I finally junked it after having to rebuild that every year I owned it.

I didn't leave enough space between the rows but that's a good idea for next year :thumbs:
