The idea of it is cool. Been thinking about a mini chisel plow using shanks from a Ford Dearborn cultivator or something similar. Having 5 shanks arranged with this pattern '.'.' What kind of power should I need? I would like to get it built for a plowing match that is going on next year. I have a Moto mower 6020 to pull it and maybe a Massey 14. Any suggestions on design? Materials?

I like the sounds of it how to you plan on raising or lowering it? As far as a design i would look at full size implements take a ton of pictures get measurements an build to the scale of your gt, also check around on the internet an see if anyone else has built any an see if they will share some info on their building expierences. That is the best info i can give you right now if i think of something else that will help you ill add it later.

Probably minion lift😉

No... I'll use some kind of system like the brinly dethatcher I have. It would be neat for hydraulics but I'm not that advanced or have that much cash...

An idea i just had was you could have it on wheels like the york rake(stone rake) an use the wheels to adjust height an the amount of weight that is on the teeth

Sounds to me like you are shooting for something similar to the Sears cultivator.

Dito.  Or the Brinly or DB cultivators with the points in place of the sweeps.

I was looking for something that would rip about 6" deep. Or just look cool at a plow day. Those Sears cultivators are close to what I'm trying to do

I use an old cultivator to rip up the garden in springtime. It seems to work decent for me. I think it is a Power King. With five shanks, I can get it down 6-8" with out trouble.

Garden tractors and/or antique tractors at this plow day. ?? I was wondering what you were going to do with the attachment at the plow day. I take a set of disks for my garden tractor to our plow day and do some disking, for entertainment, when the plowing is done. Noel.

I've actually been thinking about building something like this too. I have hydraulics on mine,so I can tap into them. But you can pick up electric lifts from princess auto fairly cheap.

Hi I built a digger last winter for use behind my Power King it works pretty good if I limit it to 6 inches or so I can pull in in plowed ground more than that the PK spins and digs down the rear tires are loaded with washer fluid and has 60 lb wts on each wheel. I made it 60" wide here's some pics

No it's 90 percent big stuff. I want to start the small stuff section. There is a guy with a little simplicity with a cultivator and duals. I thought it was cool
