Few of the modern gardeners can be surprised with a walk-behind tractor or cultivator; rather, bewilderment will be caused by a person who decides to dig up heels or two hundred parts with an ordinary shovel. Another thing is that not all equipment owners are aware of the existence of additional equipment capable of mechanizing not only digging the ground, but also other types of work.
Surely for many owners of suburban areas it will be news that the walk-behind tractor is capable of completely mechanizing the entire cycle of growing and harvesting potatoes. So, potato planters are used for planting . There are models with wheel drive, they can be installed on almost any walk-behind tractor.
Weeders and rippers can be installed to remove weeds and oxygenate the soil. For harvesting, potato diggers are provided ; they are produced in several types. The simplest models are a small plow with rods fixed at the back. The tubers move along the twigs with the soil. Under the influence of vibration, the earth crumbles from them, as a result, the tubers remain on the surface. Such potato diggers are inexpensive, but not all tubers are taken out, part of the crop will remain in the ground.
The more complex models have a knife, with a guarantee that it will capture the entire ridge. Long, vibrating rods "shake off" the soil from the tubers, and at the exit the crop is almost completely cleared of the ground. The most "advanced" can still put the tubers in a row near the ridge.
If you already have a walk-behind tractor, do not rush to buy a snow blower : it is quite possible that special equipment for snow removal is offered for your model . Unfortunately, here you do not have to rely on the versatility of attachments: the snow blower needs a drive from the engine, which must be provided for by the design of the walk-behind tractor.
As a rule, the rig is attached to the seats provided by the manufacturer, and an additional belt is used to connect to the engine. At the same time, sometimes the pulley will need to be replaced on the walk-behind tractor.
If you need a snow blower, but you have not bought a walk-behind tractor yet, it makes sense to choose from those models that are initially equipped with the appropriate equipment.
Such a walk-behind tractor can be a very profitable purchase, since its cost, together with the equipment, will be comparable to the price of a separate snowblower, and the possibilities will be much wider.
A motor cultivator or walk-behind tractor can be turned into a mini tractor with minimal effort. All you need is pneumatic wheels (if there are no standard ones), a hitch and some kind of solution for the rear axle: either a trailer or just a pair of the same wheels on the axle. This technique can be used with a variety of attachments, including a potato planter, cultivator, harrow, mower, hillers, cutter. A mini tractor is also useful for transporting goods, for example, it can be used to transport trees or bushes to the planting site, and the harvest to the storage site.
It should be borne in mind that the walk-behind tractor allows you to use more attachments than a cultivator. If the main goal is plowing the land, then you should choose heavy models that will process the site better.
The capabilities of motoblocks are not limited to the listed equipment. If you wish, you can also find a mower, hay rake, seeder, rotary brush for removing debris and snow, a winch, a mulcher and even a wood splitter.
Before buying any new garden equipment, check if there is a corresponding equipment for your walk-behind tractor. Thanks to this, you can not only save money and storage space for garden equipment, but also expand the functionality of existing equipment for performing various agricultural operations.
