"Made It Myself" 3-Pt. Implement“I made a ‘mini spader’ that breaks up sod for gardening. I also use it to loosen up hard ground that needs to be graded. I built it almost entirely out of my junk pile,” says Frank Miller.
The 3-pt. tool consists of a gang that supports three 10-in. cultivator sweeps spaced about 8 in. apart. The sweeps are welded to vertical lengths of 2-in. dia., heavy wall pipe, which in turn are welded to a horizontal length of 4-in. dia. pipe. The entire structure is reinforced by vertical lengths of angle iron and steel rod.
