If there is a mini-tractor or walk-behind tractor in the household, attachments and accessories are needed for it, for example, a disk hiller for working in the garden or in the garden. It is possible to make the working bodies of the hiller from old car rims and metal residues at no special cost. Almost any adult can cope with such work and this does not require special knowledge and skills.
It will take
Materials and tools:
- old car rims from Gazelle;
- used spring from Gazelle;
- a piece of a round pipe;
- rolling bearings;
- old shaft or axle;
- welding machine;
The process of making rims for hiller from old car rims
We draw a circle along the outer side of the discs, ensuring the outer diameter of the future hiller discs is within 31-32 cm. After cutting according to the markup, circles are obtained with elements bent to one side, resembling dovetails, which will additionally cultivate the soil.

The circles obtained in this form should not be used in the garden or in the garden as discs, since the sharp corners of the dovetails will cut potato tubers. We grind them, and at the same time we clean the disc blanks from various layers, rust and polish them.
We cut one of the sheets of the unusable spring from the Gazelle into 4 identical plates. With the help of two plates, we weld the central holes of the circles from the outer and inner sides, placing them symmetrically with respect to the holes to be welded.
We cut the used shaft or axle in half and measure such a distance from the threaded ends that there is at least 5 cm between the cutting line and the bearings. We weld the cut ends to the rest of the halves at an angle of 110 degrees.
So that the bearings do not move axially inward, we weld stops in the form of rings cut off from a round pipe of a suitable diameter.
From another pipe of the corresponding diameter, we cut off 2 rings of the same width.
Having drawn 3 diameters, we find the center of the welded plates and make holes in them slightly smaller than the inner diameter of the rings, which we weld coaxially to the holes in the plates.
We insert the axles of the racks into the rings. Moreover, the outer bearing will rest against the protrusions of the holes in the plates and will not allow the racks to move. On the outside of the axle with bearings, we fix it with nuts. The disks for the hiller are quite ready for installation.
