It was time to hill some of the potatoes , I removed the outside tines on the PKs cultivator and moved the others so they would loosen the soil between the plants , I ended up doing that to all the rows even those that I didn't hill yet for the weeds . I set up some hilling sweeps using the DB 600 walkbehind The first hilling sweeps didn't move much even taking 2 passes with the second one moved closer to the plant .I changed to a different stye and while it did work better I'm sure it would have taken multiple passes . Maybe I'm just expecting too much ?
This was done with the PK
This was with the first set of sweeps, left a pretty big ridge down the middle . Something else ,with using these sweeps with the bar mounted across the frame there's so much twist it bent those 3/8u-bolts and it was putting marks in the frame because of that so there's another job to figure a better way to clamps if someone has an idea
This is with the last set of sweeps
One thought was using 2 sets of sweeps at one time . The first set out wide and the second to do the hilling
