    Thinking of getting a garden bedder: Suggestions?

    Hi all,

    I'm tired of using a hoe to build the beds. I'm going to purchase a garden bedder. Does anyone have some good suggestions? It won't get used but once a year so quality isn't of highest concern. Price is always a factor.

    I'm in the market too. Our local co-op has them and I'm going to get a price on one this weekend.

    I priced out 3 point hitch, tool bar and hiller set and came to $359, but price of shipping really kills this.
    Edit: they actually have a bundle for this:

    How big is the garden??
    If the garden is big enough that you could run the bedder for 4 hours at a time,,the cost is not a factor.

    If the garden is small like mine (40x150 feet) the run time is 15 minutes.

    I really prefer a tiller for a small garden,,, although as I have been getting older,,,
    I really prefer what a Gravely 2 wheel tractor is capable of,,,

    The Gravely and rotary plow will make perfect beds,,, at any reasonable height,,,

    I just remembered, I do have a 6 row, double disc bedder; but I don't think that my 3046 can pick it up off the ground. It would do the job in one pass..

    I built a homemade two bar, tool bar some what similar to the modular system..
    I then built several different sub attachments..
    I have discs that I can mount for hiller/bedder, disc plow with the same discs, chisel digger, cultivator, rake, multi shank sub soil tool, or road maintainer..
    Your imagination is your only limit..
    Good luck..

    Well, I ended up ordering the Heavy Hitch setup. It is more than double the amount of the others :banged: , but I do get a receiver out of it. I got the 70# option and the combo with the gooseneck mount as well so I can move my trailers around. If you already have the receiver then the price is only about $100 more than the other options. They seem well built and American made. I'll report back on the quality and functionality.

    I wonder if I can fit my 100 lb suitcase weights on it from my IH 1086?
