Wow Ed!!!!

I was impressed when I first saw what you were up to. To see the final product is really awesome. Nice welding job and excellant salvaging skills for the materials. You did a very nice job on that custom tool bar. Again wow!
That should save ya some time. Chris

Dave, the cultivators scratch the areas between the rows. This unit makes a furrow, where the row will be planted. Ed

All we see are these panoramanic pictures of this nice blue thing - vaguely attached to the universal lifters.

Attached with glue? bailing wire? Will it really stand up in use?

Details! We must have close ups of all the furrower attachment points - as well the mounting system.

Then, & only then; can we gush appropriately as to the miraculous nature of this invention.
And more importantly: steal your ideas for our own use.

Joe


Joe, the attachment to the universal frame is a 7/8 in. diameter, grade 8 bolt, same as the cultivators are attached. The springs are mounted with the same bolt that attaches them to the cultivator. Third pic shows row spacing adjustment. Ed

Well Scott is back on the board posting and I am thinking that he is back in the garage again, so it looks to be adding up that he might have done it. :mrgreen: Either way it does look great.

How about some action shots guys.


A little early in the season, for action shots. Wait until mid May. Ed

MaineDad, shovels bolt onto the springs, same as small cultivator shovels, or sweeps, do. Top of the spring bolts to angle iron, welded to the pipe. (third close-up, in the above post. Ed

Ed, I think you can adjust (width) the feet on the cultivator's tool bar, depending on what shovels you have on them You can adjust the depht (sp) to how deep you want with the touch control , I like to plant wide rows works for me. Dave F.

Ed,

I really like your connections, they look bomber - which is what they'll have to be to hold up. I wonder if welding a little fillet around the coller of the 7/8" bolt/ angle iron connection wouldn't add a bit of rigidity to the structure that would help in the long run.

Excellent job.

hey Chris,
this year we got a hoop greenhouse (high tunnel) going this last fall for a winter garden. We planted on Aug.1 ~30*40' of growing beds as per E. Coleman 4 season gardening. Chards, kales, carrots, spinich, lettuce, pak choi, & other asian greens, all in production now. The carrots really wanted another month of growth. Good an sweet now, though not nearly as large as they could have been if they'd been growing longer before the cold set in.


I'm having second thoughts on the fillet about the collar, sometimes having a little bolt play goes a long way towards getting the implement mounted and dismounted.

Joe, there's a little bolt play, not much, same as the front cultivators have, for ease of attachment. Ed
