“After years of beating myself up with an old Snapper front-tine tiller, I decided I had to find a way to make it easier to operate,” says Jared Wagoner, Embarrass, Minnesota.

“What I really didn’t like was the way it would start to submarine if you started to get too deep in loose soil. I couldn’t justify a fancy rear-tine tiller.

“After looking around at my equipment, I realized what I needed was a gauge wheel. So I added a 10-inch-diameter pneumatic caster wheel to the front, and it’s now much easier to use in the garden. And with the wheel out front, I can tip it forward when transporting it to the garden and push it like a wheelbarrow, as opposed to driving it and tearing up the yard.”

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own home DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
