Homemade cultivator: recommendations
A homemade cultivator is a device that consists of a gearbox and an electric motor, they are located on the frame. All working elements are attached to the output shaft of the gearbox. With the help of the coupling element, the steering wheel is attached to the frame. Also attached to the frame wheels. Some devices can be equipped with a steering wheel that can be adjusted in height and position.
To facilitate the implementation of excavation, it is necessary to make their own electric cultivator. It is the power of anyone who has the concept of technology. The cultivator homemade consists of a small amount of parts.

- hand tools - hammer, pliers;

Cultivator harvesting sequence
First you need to prepare the corners of the required size and fasten them to the metal case of the gearbox. Pipes are welded to the corners. To make the device easy to handle, the ends of the pipes must be bent. It is also necessary to weld axles on which the wheels will be mounted to the corners.
The size of the wheels must be chosen correctly.
Very large wheels are inconvenient to drive, in turn, small wheels will be stuck in the soil. Once the base structure is created, you need to start creating the shaft. To do this, with a sledgehammer broken nozzle for the meat grinder. A scrap billet is placed in the loose bushing.
Further, the welding machine is welded screw, with which the soil will rise. To make the homemade cultivator as convenient as possible to operate, you can install an engine switch on one of the handles.
Depending on the speed of rotation of the screw, large clods of earth will form or the soil will be loose. On average, a homemade cultivator at a time can cultivate about 3 acres of land. This indicator is more influenced by soil type. For example, sandstone is much easier and faster to process than loam. On average, the speed at which the knives rotate is 50 revolutions per minute. Homemade electric cultivator consumes on average up to 2 kW.
