Made this over the past few days, tried it out on Saturday. Worked not to bad, but need to make it a little stronger so it wont bend in the middle. All used stuff around the garage was used. Was going to buy disks and other stuff, but why do that when I could make some thing.  Noel

Nice build! Make some angle pieces to go to the ends and it won't bend so much!

I believe they were spring tooth harrows. I cut the top curl off them. Added a piece of angle to the middle tonite. Welded angle upside down to the other piece. Quick attach and deattach by removing one pin. Noel

Good idea.

And it's always good to get that stuff that's been sitting around forever used. That's why I never throw anything away, you just never know what ideas are just waiting to be let out :rolling:

Great repurposing.
How long before the plant height will keep you from using it?

I would say about two weeks and that will be it for going over the plants. Will have to make a high crop garden tractor for next year.  Have a hiller made too, but have not used it yet.  Maybe this weekend, IF it ever stops raining.
