If you have some, looking for ideas to build hillers. Dosent matter if they are on a tractor, or two wheeled tractor, or hauled by hand. Please post pictures of anything you use, dosent matter what, just looking for ideas. Thanks.

Mine is a tiller and a garden hoe. I wish I had one for my Sears.

I run the tiller over that strip a couple more times to get it as deep as I can.  Then use a hoe to make a high berm and plant the potatoes in that.  Works good for regular and sweet potatoes.
