Default Hilling Disc Sources?

I'm wanting to build a Toolbar to make raised beds in the Garden for my 1500 Ford. I was going to buy a Garden Kit till I figured out that the Shipping would push it out of my Budget. Agr--Supply has the discs but again the shipping from the Carolinas is going to be steep. Any ideas as to where I can get them closer to Iowa??

I initially intended to buy The toolbar/Garden unit from Everything Attatchments and their PPD/Frt deal within 1000 miles is attractive. However I'm about 1100 miles from them and the $250-300 frt charge makes their unit exceed my budget.

I see your in Louisiana and are probably familiar with Stevens Tractor Parts.
I like their Garden set better than Everything Attatchments. But again the freight is a deal breaker.

Actually I bought 4 disks and shanks from Ag Supply.
And built my own mounting brackets to work with my home made 5' tool bar.

I can set it up to hill and till with the tractor or set up to hill 2 rows per tractor width. That would require hand or hand power tool cultivation.
Will try to post a picture.
Go for it...... Build your own.....
Enjoy

Jim..............CALL Agri-supply..............DO NOT go by the shipping costs on the website. I bought a set of 12" discs from them when I rebuilt my brinly disc. Shipping according to the website was going to be OVER 100.00. I called and asked them about it and they gave me a correct shipping cost that was VERY reasonable. I was told to always call on large items that are going to be shipped.

I would like to hear more about your toolbar. The wife would like to have 4 ft beds. I thinking about going 5 ft for that reason. How did you make the clamps? I have a 5 ft piece of 3X 3 1/2 x1/4 inch angle iron I was planning to use for the main beam.

Thanks for the tip Robert!! I have checked all the places I can think of here in central Iowa and found no one who had a clue what I was talking about let alone had the discs. So it looks like Agri-Supply iis the way to go.

Wyobuckaroo: I forgot to ask what size discs you used? I'm debating between the 14" & 16".

16" diameter with 16" shanks.......

I built the chisel point tools first and the hiller afterwords.
This size was the best fit for keeping the tool frame and 3pt arms level while still getting the depth of engagement in the ground I wanted.

Like said, I have 4 shanks total. I can set them up as a kind of modified one way plow. Haven't done that yet, but think it would work OK.....

Good luck
