Modified Garden Tiller
My 3 hp garden tiller is equipped with front-mounted blades that would throw clods onto plants if I got too close. To solve the problem, I cut a 5-gal. plastic pail in half and bolted the two halves onto the tiller frame over the top of the blades. Now the churning dirt stays inside the plastic covers and, instead of throwing lumps out, it chews them right up and leaves the dirt real fine so I can till right next to plants. The metal brackets I made let me adjust the covers up or down. (Robert Sexton, Rt. 1, Box 2A, Millville, Minn. 55957 ph 507 798-2492)
