Easy Tiller Depth Guide: A DIY Add-On
By Farm Show
“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.”
