Topic tags/keywords: tilller attachments tiller row maker

Hey guys, i thought you guys might could assist me in attempting to locate a hard to find tiller row maker that was on the market some years ago.

I am looking for a Row Maker attachment that slides on a 1” tiller shaft on either front tine or rear tine tillers, however this row maker is not like the more modern attachments that are available at larger box stores.

So please allow me to attempt to paint a mental picture for you:

The row maker resembles an auger bit when standing on end. There are two halves to this attachment, one which slides on the left side of the gear housing and the other on the right side of the gear housing.

These row makers are made of half portions of metal discs welded along its shaft in arrangement that resembles an auger when stood on end. These metal discs are oriented in such a manner when lain in its horizontal position as when installed on the tine shaft that they function as a corkscrew. Thus, moving the dirt along towards the centerline of the tiller.

Of course both sides are the exact construction as mentioned above. They each are about 10-12” in length.

I was wondering if any of you guys may be familiar with someone that may have some of these that they are willing to sell that aren’t being used any longer. Or, could you point me to a small scale manufacture that makes these. At one time there was a company in Texas that made these row makers that would fit all tillers that utilized a 1” shaft.

I guess they no longer exist for i cannot find any information in regards to same via an intensive online search.

Thanks for everything,

Chris

Bon here goes a link to the product that i have been hunting high and low for, i found it with the help of some friends from another forum.
Please see link here
I wasn’t looking for it by this name but it is called a Roto Till Attachment

Thought you might just like to know what the product looked like. Of course you would need two of them, one on each side of the gear housing. Now you get the picture.

Thanks again, Chris
