What is a Rotary Tiller?
Rotary tillers, also known as rotavators, are machines that fall into the class of secondary tillage machines and are widely used in the agricultural field to make the soil suitable for cultivation. This machine, which can be quite large, enables the soil to be broken up and mixed from the bottom to the surface with the help of horizontally rotating blades.
What Does a Rotary Tiller Do?
With its strong and durable structure, in addition to operations such as tillage in the field, seed bed preparation, stubble; It is a functional machine suitable for use in vineyard and garden agriculture. It provides organic fertilizer and humus increase by mixing plant residues into the soil. It is an environmentally friendly equipment thanks to the mechanical solution it provides in weed control. With these features, the rotary tiller increases the efficiency of the soil and saves time and fuel.
Which Is The Best Rotary Tiller?
The answer to the question “Which is the best rotary tiller”; They are C type bladed rotors called field type rotary tillers. It is connected to the tractor with the three-point hitch system and it takes action from the PTO of the tractor through the shaft (cardan joint). It transmits the movement taken from the tail shaft to the blades with the gear transmission system. Thanks to its robust body structure and strong blades, it exhibits superior working performance in all difficult terrain conditions.
How Much Are the Rotary Tiller Prices?
Rotary tillers, which stand out with their functionality, strong structure and durability, are in the middle price segment. You can contact us by filling out the YTAgri contact form to get detailed information about rotary tiller prices.
How to Maintain a Rotary Tiller?
- The oil level of the gear box and crankcase oil should be checked by removing the bolts, top up if it is missing.
- Change gearbox and crankcase oil after every 200 hours of operation
- Use SAE 140 EP oil for gearbox and crankcase oil.
- Grease the rotor right bearing and roller bearings
- Grease both joints of the shaft until grease comes out of all the packings.
- Repeat this process after every 4 hours of operation.
- In case of overload, check the bolts connecting the gearbox to the input shaft, tighten if any loosened.
- Check all connecting bolts at the end of the work, tighten if loose.
- For problems you cannot solve, contact the YTAgri service.
- After cleaning the machine at the end of the work, keep it indoors. Cover it if it cannot be stored in a confined space.
- When parking the machine, use the parking mechanism.
What are the Rotary Tiller Types?
1. Mini Tiller
They are suitable for use with small-sized agricultural and garden tractors. There are varieties such as fixed, hydraulic shifting, mechanical shifting. They require less power than others.
2. Rotary Tiller
With its strong structure, in addition to operations such as tillage in the field, seed bed preparation, stubble; It is a functional machine suitable for use in vineyard and garden agriculture.
3. Mechanical Side Shifting Rotary Tiller
With the manual sliding system in the models with mechanical shifting, it provides a comfortable raking opportunity that lasts for long hours when the adjustment is made according to the desired area by the operator.
4. Hydraulic Side Shifting Rotary Tiller
Thanks to the hydraulic piston, the misalignment of the rotavator with respect to the tractor can be changed, thus providing ergonomics compared to the mechanical rotavator. It provides air-water balance by providing a loose environment in the soil. Thanks to the protection cover on the back, it prevents the soil from scattering around, allowing it to break down again and prevents it from harming the environment.
5. Side Shifting Rotary Tiller With Hydraulic Sensing Devices
It transmits the movement taken from the tail shaft to the blades with the gear transmission system. Fixed gearbox is used in the machine. When the sensor touches a tree or any object in the forward direction, thanks to the hydraulic piston, the movement of the rotavator inward from the progress axis is provided and it does not damage the object in front of it. It is suitable for use in vineyard, garden, corn field and wheat field.
How Does the Rotary Tiller Work?
The Rotary Tiller works with the power received by the PTO of the tractor. It is operated by slowly lowering down according to the soil structure after the tractor PTO (PTO) works at the appropriate speed (540 rpm or 1000 rpm) and according to the ratio of the gear system, after the rotavator shaft gets its speed well.
How is the Working Principle of the Rotary Tiller?
The trajectories of the blade tips while the Rotary Tiller is running; takes the form of a cycloid orbital. Depending on whether the blades make both a translational movement and a rotation movement at a speed equal to the tractor’s forward speed, the blades work the soil by following a cycloid orbit or similar orbits.
