Recommendations for electric cultivator selection
Soil type. Start the selection of equipment for loosening should be determined by the characteristics of the soil on the homestead plot.
- If the soil in the vegetable garden and garden is developed and maintained properly, you can buy a light and compact cultivator. Pensioners and teenagers can easily operate such models. Even a small patch of virgin land, the technique will master, though, in a few tries. The combination of 10-15 kg weight and 1.0-1.5 kW motor power will be optimal.
- In the case of buying a plot of land with dense soil or a cottage with a sodded plot, it is more advantageous to buy a solid and powerful model. And let such equipment is more expensive, but its effective work will quickly pay back the financial investment. An example would be a 25-35 kg unit with a capacity of 2.0-3.0 kW.
Loosening depth and width. The important characteristics of an electric cultivator are considered such parameters of loosening, such as depth and width. The choice depends on the type of soil cultivation, as well as the plants that will be grown in the vegetable garden or greenhouse.
- Cultivation depth varies from 10 to 30 cm. By loosening the top layer of soil it is possible to get rid of weeds, as well as improve the aeration of the row spacing. The deepest possible plowing of the soil is required for spring and fall organic matter incorporation.
- One of the parameters of the cultivator, which affects the productivity, is the width of the furrow. The wider the strip of land per pass, the faster the ground will be prepared for subsequent sowing or winter rest. But if the technique will be used for loosening seedbeds or flower beds, it is more convenient to use models with a narrow installation of the cutters.
Powered by.In the large group of electric cultivators there are two subspecies.
- Network models are powered from the household network (220 V). They are easy to maintain, have good power and can work long enough without stopping. But the main disadvantage of this type of cultivator is the need for an extension cord. When working, be careful not to cut the power cord with the burrs.
- Cordless machines win in terms of autonomy and mobility. With such a cultivator you can go to a remote plot or in a greenhouse, where there is no electricity. But the operability of the technique on a full charge is usually limited to 30-60 minutes. About the same amount of time you will have to wait for the battery to restore its strength on the charger.
Overall dimensions. Often owners transport electric cultivators for winter storage or for patronage of friends and relatives. In these cases, the determining factor will be the size of the machine. If the car has a small trunk, it is better to buy equipment with a folding or removable handle.
