I'm getting too old to make all my garden furrows,using a hoe. Came up with this contraption, made mostly of scavenged material. Thanks Chris (Chuckwheat Farm), for 2 of the shovels. Had to buy one.(AgriSupply). Mounts on the universal mounting frame. Row spacing is adjustable. Now, I just need Spring! Ed

You are a crafty feller Ed, are you sure that isn't one of Scotty's inventions he says you are always trying to steal his thunder.

Good looking rig. Anything to save the old back. Been there, done that with the hoe.

I Know I am not the brightest bulb in the string of lite's but couldn't you do the same thing with a set of cultivator's? Dave F.

Not so fast there dude!

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.

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.
