After buying a walk-behind tractor, each owner naturally asks the question – how to plow with a plow and a tiller? By understanding the features, you can avoid typical mistakes with the ensuing negative consequences.
How to plow with a walk-behind tractor with a plow
The existing handle of the walk-behind tractor must first be turned to the left at the base. In this case, you do not need to step on an unploughed surface of the ground, which ensures maximum comfort.
To avoid typical errors, it is strongly recommended to follow the following sequence of actions:
- At the initial stage, it is necessary to place the walk-behind tractor at the beginning of the strip directly along the stretched cord.
- At the end of the successful processing of the row, it is necessary to turn around so that the right wheel of the equipment is opposite the furrow of the already plowed strip.
Recommendations: it is necessary to exclude haste when performing work. In the event of engine overheating, it is important to immediately stop treatment for cooling.
How to plow with a walk-behind tractor with cutters
During work with the cutter, it is necessary to mount the coulter on the rear support of the equipment. Fixing is carried out in the middle position. Finally, you need to finish setting the depth. The parameter directly depends on several factors:
- density level;
- the quality of cultivated soil.
It is important not to ignore the features presented, which are due to a direct relationship with the subsequent convenience and quality of the work performed.
Often a situation may arise when the equipment begins to dig in place or the depth is insufficient and great effort is required. In this case, the coulter must be readjusted.
To note: it is strictly forbidden to press, pull, push and lean with all your weight on the equipment. The walk-behind tractor should operate autonomously, and the owner of the site controls only the direction of movement.
After that you need:
- Engage first gear.
- Add the required number of turns.
- Activate the clutch gently.
- Move the equipment to its original position.
Don’t worry about bearing problems – there are no difficulties.
To start processing the soil, you need to turn on the second gear, set the maximum allowable speed, and then gently engage the clutch. As a result, the cutter begins to move, and then dig into the ground. In the case of the treatment of a virgin ground, it is strongly recommended to use the first speed, and without slowing down the engine speed.
In order to correct the processing depth, it is necessary to slightly press the handle to the ground. As a result, the coulter sinks deeper into the ground, after which a decrease in the speed of movement is observed. At the same time, the cultivation depth increases.
If necessary, perform loosening directly on the bayonet of the knife, it is necessary to rotate the equipment in different directions with smooth movements. Through simple actions, the gearbox is shifted in depth and parallel to the sides.
In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the work is performed with an even position of the back, and the hands should be located at the level of the belt. It involves the most comfortable conditions, which involves a long process of continuous treatment. As a benefit, there is no harm to health. At the same time, the working speed directly depends on the actual condition of the ground. Therefore, everything is determined on an individual basis.
