I did find that the 16" disc hillers were to large and that I needed to get smaller. I went ahead and got the 12" and they were the ticket. They were sold as 1 1/4" shaft but came 1 1/8" so some shimming was involved. I couldn't find the 1/16" shim I needed at any of the parts stores so a trip to the hardware store for a bathroom drain tube and that was it just enough. Took the old cultivator parts for the round shaft and mounted them to my tractor and bolted the disc hillers on. Did the hilling on the potatoes last night and they worked just as I thought they should. I did have to make mult passes cause the ground id so dry but the hilling is now complete.

Now onto the the potato plow project using a AC B plow arm and a furrower blade. I hope the B has what it takes.

If anyone has any suggestions on the plow that I am making let me know. I am starting from scratch. I am always open to suggestions.

I have a potato digger tha I got years ago as well. It is an old Hover. I got it before I knew it had the JD name attached to it. I did get it freed up but it needed more work and so it sits. It now has a tree in the normal spot growing betweek the wheels. I have yet to see it in some time but Harmon tells me so. I would like to see if I can make something like this for the plow frame.

"I hope the B has what it takes." COME ON!! The "B" stands for BEAR! Didn't anybody ever tell you that? Hold that throttle easy! I heard that you can take the curve right out of a moldboard if you get a little crazy with all the power. Might it be possible to take the two way moldboard plows and hitch them tight together and use them light and shallow enough to function as a digger? best. Yeoman

Making a moldboard plow stright now that I have to see!

I did have to take a few extra passes to get them hilled up good but the seemed to work just fine. Need some rain to soften up the soil and they would work wonders. I did manage to get the tractor to slip the wheels cause of the dry ground but it worked flawlessly for me. I thank you for your help with them. I'm sure I'll be back asking for more on the plow I'm fixing to make. I do have those other hillers you gave me to try. I can get them back to you anytime. Thanks for the use of them. I did some figureing with them to see where to place the others. Big help. Have to get some of those potatoes to you to try for your time on this project when they come in.

As to the two way I have one of those as well and the thought never crossed my mind. I was thinking of some how making a middle buster type plow with one of the plow arms. I'll have to walk out and take a good look at your idea better.

I have an old potato digger that followed me home from an auction. I have never tried to use it. Would it be worth looking at for your project? best. Yeoman

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
