Let's see your hiller set ups

Postby Wilbilly » Sat Jan 20, 2018 8:47 pm

I'm trying to figure out how I want to put togather something to make raised rows beds whatever you want to call them . Iv got a set of those disk hillers, but I'm not sure that is going to get a big enough hill. Thanks for any help.

I can't get my pictures to load. What I do is set it up like a modern orthman bedder. I get 2 orthman Lister plows and set them in front on the cultivator bars. (One on each side right behind the wheels) then set the hillers right behind the plows to throw towards the inside. I make 2 to 3 passes per row and the last pass I run 2 gear wide open. Throws more dirt. If you want you can cut the outside wings off the Lister plows. Will help on building the next row.

I need something to plant and hill potatoes. Then cultivate and hill them again. Never done it with a tractor, I was thinking of using two of those walk behind corn planters. Planting both of these is work by hand.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Not my tractor, but I set mine up like the video. I have the offset hillers (see below) instead of the straight ones,so I flip them backwards first to make a trench for fertilizer and then make the row:

Hope this helps,

Al those off set disk hillers is what I have. Idk what I got I'm mine is iv can get a cutting edge off a #12 cat grader from work. I'm thinking I may cut two 2ft peaces off that cutting edge and use those and my disk hillers in some kinda combination to get some hill trow up. Iv been doing this by hand with a hoe . Of corse I'm thinking to use my cultivator as a base for building something. Iv got some extra cultivator shanks so I was going to use them to make something that may be a little quicker to change back and forth between this set up and cultivators.
My garden spot is kinda wet in the spring and early summer and iv found that Hilling up rows for my tomatoes, squash, and cucumbers and a few other things really help to keep them from sobbing out.

Here's the only photos I have of ours. These hillers are actually JD hillers with the offset. I have some for a Cub with the IH logo somewhere in the building. The last 2 photos don't have the crooked bar back on but I use it when listing rows.

Brandon it throwing up a pretty good hill with just the disk hillers. Maybe I'm over thinking it I just need to take a couple passes with them and it'll be OK. I just got my disk hillers so iv not had,a change to use them yet.
