Easy Steer System For Garden Tiller
Adaptable to any size or brand tiller, the guidance system replaces the stationary wheels on conventional front tined tillers. It consists of a main frame that bolts to the rear and a pair of 8-in. wheels joined together so they turn in unison.
A shoulder bolt locks the wheels in a stationary position for tilling in a straight line. It unlocks the wheels, which pivot in tandem on a length of 1/2-in. dia. pipe turning inside a length of 5/8-in. dia. pipe. Makes it easy to turn the tines close to the plants or to turn in a tight circle.
"It makes gardening easier," Dunn says, adding the device could be built for under $40.
Dunn has been granted a patent on his invention and is looking for someone to buy the rights to manufacture it.
