Call it what you will but I am chasing one of these. They are only small maybe 300 - 400mm across, used behind walk behind rotary hoes for creating potato ridges. Does not have to be exactly the same, something similar I can adapt would be fine. If you have one out the back or spot one some \where please let me know.

Cant you do something with that piece?

My guess would be to look near scrap dealers or farmers yards, ask them, they might have which they give you for a fiver!

Not mine unfortunately (google images), I think I will likely end up making one.

No farms of farmyard in your area? I mean you are pretty close to the city, but the countryside is not far away either!

Plenty of land around and I work on a farm(all be it a small one on the outskirts of the city) but these attachments were not that common so are hard to come by. The worst part is I did use to own one along with a toolbar and small tynes but I sold it with the hoe many moons ago before I found time to get back ito growing vegies.
