“Hiller” Fitted To Back Of Rototiller
“I designed it to eliminate the need for in-row hoeing,” says David Sand, Avon, Minn., who mounted a V-shaped “hiller” on back of his Troy-Bilt tiller.
  The attachment mounts with 2 bolts in place of the existing depth control arm. As the tiller works it’s way down the row, the hiller directs dirt up onto the corn rows, covering weeds in the row.
  “I just made it this spring and have been trying it on corn,” says Sands, who adds that it seems to put enough dirt up against the rows to smother most of the weeds, at least delaying them if not killing them.
  The hiller matches the width of the tiller, and he planted the corn in row widths to match the tiller.
