Petrol Cultivator for Hire

Guaranteed in Stock!

  • Medium Duty
  • Ideal for allotments and gardens
  • Reduces the time and effort required
  • Anti vibration and adjustable handlebars
  • Perfect for landscape contractors, allotment holders / associations and smallholders who are working ground for the first time

Capable of performing in even the toughest of conditions, this medium duty petrol cultivator is a robust and durable machine that dramatically reduces the time and effort required in preparing the ground in gardens and allotments for new crops, plants or vegetables. Durable blades break up and turn the soil as you walk along, creating a higher quality soil area for planting.

It offers a superb finish on previously uncultivated ground over small to medium-sized areas, and is very easy to use.

Built with improved reliability, these practical machines come complete with adjustable handlebars, strong wheels, forward and reverse speeds, and anti-vibration.

Thanks to the reduced hand-arm vibration feature, you can use this machine for longer periods without your arms becoming tired. Long-term this can help to reduce the risk of developing HAVS-related injuries.

The working width is approximately 52cm / 20".

  • Full Tank of Unleaded Petrol (Not included in price)

Extras Available at Checkout:

Rotavating Tips:

  • Always wear suitable clothing giving adequate personal protection including footwear that offers a good grip.  We stock personal protection kits which can be purchased at the same time of the hire.
  • Make sure all debris and long grass/foliage etc. is cleared from the area to be rotavated and do not attempt to cultivate the land if it's either waterlogged or the ground is frozen as this will destroy the soil structure.
  • Avoid applying excessive downward pressure on the handlebars as this could cause the rotavator to jump. It's better to apply gentle pressure and let the machine find its digging depth as this will vary according to the type of ground you are cultivating. If you are working on the hard ground then making several passes with the depth adjuster centre knife positioned on the top hole will help you get to your desired depth for rotavating.
  • For softer or sandy soil a higher working speed is best whereas a lower working speed in the hard ground will give better performance.
  • If you are using this rotavator in dry conditions please make sure that the area being cultivated has been adequately irrigated before use.
