|I've finally managed to buy a rotovator that I think will be up to the job.|
|My new work horse|
I did have a quick try of it tonight (although it was raining) and it made a great job of the strip of soil in the veg garden with very little effort (but it's not easy to start). The clay soil didn't even slow it down!
I've got no other attachments for it yet, but looking at it I think it can have a cutter bar (or Allan Scyth) fitted and there's a hole for a tow bar. I'm guessing I could make it into a little garden tractor if I wanted, and make a trailer up for it for lugging firewood and things around the small holding.
I'm hoping that by having a good rotovator it should speed things up in the garden and let me concentrate on more important jobs. And although this makes me more dependant on oil it does mean that I should have more time available.
Does anyone else use a rotovator for their garden/allotment or do you prefer to dig it all over by hand?
