iphone pics 088.jpg I tryed to disc up a garden spot but it didnt cut deep enough. No plows around me for sale so I built one. I had a Moline Bottom shoe from the mid 40s. I weled up a frame and mounted as close to the right angle as I could. It works perfect! It cut to about 7 inches and stayed down until I was ready for it to come up. What do ya think?

We all knew what you meant and decided to ignore the error, but since you pointed it out I call them Middle Busters lol.

That's what we called them too! Except we used the "Po" out front... LOL

That's a nice rig 7 NOW the disc will do the rest. You may want to add a little weight to the discs if they still aren't digging.

Don't feel down about the snow, here in West Virginia its into the Spring Showers and we have nothing but mud right now!! I till my garden cause it has a fence around it we dont want to take down. But that don't mean I wont go plow on the other side of the creek some this spring (cuts down on mowing time over there. (before you say it cuts out seat time take into consideration it takes a good 2 or so hours to mow this place and we use a modern MTD designated riding LAWN mower.)
Not to cut thru the thread, but figured id try to cheer up poncho and got outta hand lol.
