The mowing cultivator is equipped with pneumatic wheels and can be driven well on soft ground. 93 kg weight allows you to confidently “dig in” even in rolled clay, but makes it difficult to maneuver. Feedback from users shows that they like the engine protection with the steel grid – even if the machine accidentally falls over, it won’t damage any key parts.
In our opinion, the best petrol engine cultivator in terms of quality to price ratio. Despite the fact that the popular model is assembled in China, the internal combustion engine is made by Swedish Husqvarna and that is why it is reliable and easy to start.
