Garden Bed Hiller

Postby outdoors4evr » Mon Dec 13, 2021 7:04 am

After losing a garden to flooding during the 2021 season, I am feeling the need to do raised beds. My wife prefers 3' tall raised garden boxes. This is probably the better way to garden, but I don't see how I am going to manage the weeds.

I've been considering a disc hiller for the 184.
I have the 3-point hitch and also have a trailer mover with a 2" receiver.

This would cost more and have less features.

I like the two above, but the shipping cost is about $100. This one below has free shipping.

Anybody know of a better option? Used equipment is an option.

How far do you live from a big box farm store. Lot of time if you order from them the shipping to the store is free.
I have an excuse. CRS.

We have Family Farm & Home and the Tee Shirt Company (TSC) nearby. Not sure if the latter mentioned one has anything for tractors anymore.
Those may be worth a trip to town.

You could always pick up some dog food and cowboy boots, if you can't find any tractor supplies.

Farm and Home & TSC didn't carry any discs on toolbars.
