    Nobody uses hillers? Here is a picture of my A frame and I guess I could use the U-bolts on the flat bar to secure them.

    Here's mine, mounted an old JD M soil ripper diamond bar.

    The soil ripper mounts onto a drawbar hitch mounted on the 3PH. Some special clamps had to be fabricated (by a friend of mine who gave me the soil ripper) to hold the disc hiller shanks.

    My discs run right behind the wheels. Can't do that mounting them directly to that 3ph drawbar, not wide enough.

    Agri Supply sells something calls a Keulavator and includes the hardware to attach some discs. I ordered my 20" discs from Agri Supply. Later ordered some 12" ones that I combine with the soil ripper plows and work them together to rip at the raised rows and to clean out between the rows. Alas! I've plastic down now (old leftover stuff that I decided to use) between rows and don't till the rows. So, all this is sitting unused until I decide to completely redo the garden again, or to create another.

    I think you are going to need to fabricate some angle to attach to your frame and attach the hillers to that. My father is an expert on using hillers and he uses a cultivator to attach them to. I plan to get him to teach me how to set them up next spring on my cultivator. The cultivator frame has slots between the angle to allow for adjustment to change the width of the hillers. I sure hope I can get mine set up to work as well as my father's.
