The cultivator I have doesn't have a shield and I would like to make one. How big are they, how big are the brackets that hold it on?

Thanks

The rotary plow with the side shield that bolts to the round gearbox. I am think about using this to break the ground then come back with the Troy Built tiller or the PK with the choppers. Mostly just playing with it, never have seen one in action, so I don't know what to expect or how for it will throw the dirt.

Thanks

12" x 24" - 1/8" thick with 1" flats on the corners

Brackets are 1" x 8" - 5/32" thick.

There is a PDF file on the Gravely Yahoo! groups that shows sketches of the pieces. It is under files - Dirt Shield.pdf

Thanks for all the help. I just shut down the L, been cutting grass. I installed the last of the Stainless Steel bolts on the restored gearbox, paint is hard enough, so I will pull the mower off and hook it up. I'll give it a try and see what happens. I'll let you guys know.

Thanks

This is a BAD MOTOSCOTTER. I had it buried and the L8 didn't miss a beat. I ran it in Low Low a little above an idle and it tore the ground like a backhoe.
My garden is loose soil, but it does pack between the summer and fall garden giving the TROY a hard time breaking up the soil. As for as the shield, I really don't know if I will make one, run it slow and you do not throw dirt all over. I did put it in High for a while and it almost threw dirt over the fence. Will do more testing and see if I need a shield.

Thanks for the help
