lol that's the best part of doing scrap metal recycle for a living, get a lot of bits to make things out of . The blue bits are part of an exercise unit & most of the frames are from a tow bar style bicycle carry rack 

 

But on that note

 

Question

,  

Should i make the tiller dig in forward travel motion or drag cut against the pull of the tractor ??

thank you but my Rancher 2 tractor is only small & light only 8" tires so i don't have to rely on over kill on building attachments for it.

Dragging will build up in front of the tines (plowing) all the tractor mounted tillers spin in the direction of travel, the tractor simply holds the tiller back. I would add a cover over the tines. I t will hold in some of the dirt and turn the tiller into a miller type grinding the soil into fines in one pass.
