Default Potato Hiller

Looking up something else just now, I came across this clever, home built, manual potato hiller. I wish I had come across it this AM, seeing as I hilled my 200ft of potatoes with a hoe this afternoon.

The one I hand built was very much like this unit. Worked well. The one in this video I have seen in one or more farm supply catalogs.

What they don't always tell you in this type tool bar and disks can be adapted to a disk plow type configuration. I also had chisel digger shanks, and deep cutting pasture renovator type shanks homemade for my tool bar. The tool bar can be adapted to handle a chain harrow type mat that can be raised with the 3 point.
Always fresh.
