I would like to side dress vegetables when cultivating with a Super C. It has been a long time since anyone around here has seen side dressers that weren't completely rusted out.

Is there something that I can substitute that will do the same job ? Has anyone done a DIY version ?

Thanks

Greg

5 gallon bucket with about 3/4 inch hole in the bottom. Sit it at the start of the row, fill it half full and take off. If you need a break, just sit it down.

Have you considered liquid fertilizer, it would be a lot easier to rig that up, just my idea!!

I have a good John Blue brand one row sidedresser outfit that came off a Super C you can get cheap if you are close enough to pick up. Email me for more info if you are interested.

I built my own. Everything that touches fertilizer is stainless. Cultivator frame is on other side of tractor. Got about $40 in it.

Just mount a tank and use liquid run hose down to the shovel using a ball valve to open and close the flow. I did that for sweetcorn on an A worked well. Would be easy to do.There are different ferts that are water mixed to use. Just visit your garden center to find the one you want to use.

That is quite a DIY spreader! Nice work.

Thanks. A very good friend gave me the clutch mechanism sitting on the axle. I fabricated most everything else from stuff here on the place. Had to buy the stainless steel bolts.
