DIY jack for tiller neva

In this topic, I propose to post videos, photos, descriptions about devices that help to raise the tiller for any operations.
Since such descriptions are scattered across topics and are difficult to find, we will collect everything here.
My jack for lifting tiller Ray (MB1).
One of the conditions for the creation was the compactness of the storage and transportation of the jack. And also the possibility of using a jack without support on the legs.

My thoughts swarm only in my head. Oh, I’ll take the swarm to the dacha, but for the weekend.

I made just such a stand, although the Volgov jack is lying. But for me the jack seems to take too long to raise and lower. And then he raised by the horns, pushed the stand with his foot, changed the wheels, and in the reverse order

The same thoughts. There are no photos nearby, then I will repeat, but for a long time I followed a similar path. On the hitch, the socket for attaching the implements is the same, and the racks of the implements are the same, so this should be used. I spread it somewhere, I can’t find it quickly, in a nutshell. On the front beak of the MB-1, an adaptation with a nest for a tool is put on. Then I look around and fix ANY of the free tools there. Here comes the stand.

I have wheels in front of me as a support.

By the way, in addition to the stand, I fitted a magnetic bowl on the wing. It is very convenient to put fingers, stoppers and other small things there.

Yard. Well, if anyone needs that wheel, then okay. I just needlessly. Yes, to be honest, the stand is useless, so there was a test. In general, I slowly come to work on the same pair of wheels, for all operations, only occasionally I remember when they ask to put the cutters. And this is sooo rare.

I use such a poker. Idea from the forum.

Well you live there is where to move out of the plowed milled. I have a jack for the Neva. Nothing is welded to it. It’s just that it is inserted into a tube worn on the beak from the front or from the back. But I take off the wheels on a more or less solid one, and put them on a milled one (we have practically no levada), so I tilt the Neva on its side, hold it with my left foot so that it does not fall and take off the cutters and put on the wheels in this position. The photo is exactly the wheel to show. Cutters long grip of the Neva River 1.2 meters. Even with a plank under the jack, it is inconvenient to work with it. Just don’t take this as a criticism of your devices. It’s just like a little story about changing milling cutters to wheels in conditions when there is no hard ground nearby. I’ll be alive, I’ll take a photo of the Neva standing with cancer. And there will be an operator with him too.

Well done, I respect. I shod my “animal” in the wheels of the Oka, it seems like nothing. crawling.

accessories, tiller, neva

What is the diameter of the semi-axle pipes and what kind of rubber (size) the dock?

diameter by 30 for pipes, and banana at 14

The weight needs to be done on the wheels themselves, if the load on the gearbox is hooked in front, the hubs are weak, the tiller cut off the fingers, and then they will just slip there in the extension cords.

they will not slip, everything is compressed and there is a locking finger

I drilled roofing screws into my own wheels, yesterday I passed the test drive successfully, with a shovel width of 1.2 m, the snow pushes, does not slip)

I did not understand what the regular wheels are not satisfied with?

on bananas, the speed will increase and it will be softer, I’m interested in trying different

I did not understand what the regular wheels are not satisfied with?

this is a special racing tiller, and slicks so that the grip on the asphalt is better) in America, rednecks are embroidered on tractors, but here the scale is a bit smaller)

Overrunning clutches would go there. It will be hard to deploy. Or Neva knows how to split the semi-axes (I don’t remember).

Then it’s easier.
The blade does not break on kerchiefs?

there is still no big snow, the kerchiefs should not break

There are no gussets, but the pipes will twist. Mine twisted a 50-ku hooked with a shovel on a frozen stone (metal wheels with lugs).

in what place do you think?

Vertical pipe. Bolting is also not the most reliable.

and why it is not reliable, he drilled the pipe, the pipe is thick-walled

If completed, it’s another matter. Usually a bolt with a nut for adjustment. And the bolt cannot clamp the pipe. it twists it at once. By the way, 577 and twisted (I did it like stockings, apparently not enough).

Overrunning clutches would go there. It will be hard to deploy. Or Neva knows how to split the semi-axes (I don’t remember).

MB 2 can separate axes

We have already discussed with the owner

Will the wheels go to the axle boxes? The mass is small for deep snow removal.

there will be grousers for snow

and what the hell out of the jack? for what?

this is not crap, but a useful tool, raises the tiller from the front, it is easy to change wheels

Yesterday my father and I put it from the UAZ. It is harmful to ride on such, he should drag a plow or dig a cardboard, the height is just right.

Bananas are purely for drifting, girls for a ride, blow out the pots with a breeze, otherwise, on a tractor.

native wheels seem to stand backwards)))) and so cool, from what stowaways? bolt pattern came up?

wheels from Toyota, new wheel hubs

if you disassemble the cultivator, then there is a drilling just under the VAZ wheels, well, since there are 3 cultivators on each side, you can put 3 wheels))) on soft soil it is rushing very well, even the plow pulls

There are five holes on the axle shafts, I don’t know how they put the VAZ wheels there without drilling new holes, but the Moskichev wheels fit the old holes perfectly.

not not not. not wheeled but from cultivators.

Clear. That’s how the Muscovites are standing with me.

and I disassembled the cultivators in order to just undermine and knock, otherwise they became dull and bent, well, I tried it on the VAZ wheel, the norms came up, so I screwed it on.

Homemade loader from Tiller

A loader from a tiller is a necessary thing in the household. Buying a ready-made forklift is very expensive, it is necessary only if there is constant work with the transportation of goods, clearing the area, etc. Mostly forklifts in the household are used to remove snow and transport various goods, so it will be cheaper and more rational to make a forklift with your own hands.

Craftsmen are constantly coming up with new versions of this equipment, so there are many modifications, among which there is a suitable option for everyone. A loader can be assembled from special parts, or you can use what many have in garages. Parts from old cars and motorcycles are suitable.

the tiller must be equipped with a powerful engine. The heavier the loads, the more powerful the equipment should be. Even tillers with 15 hp motors. lift no more than 250 kg. Counterweight is required.

As a basis, you can take the drawings of the fracture mini-tractor. The frame is made of a channel, the fracture unit is a fist from a VAZ, a steering column and shortened axles from any car, a P40 hydraulic valve, a bucket can be made independently, or you can use a ready-made.

Potato digger for tiller

Various types of potato diggers are very popular among farmers. These devices save people from hard manual labor, speeding up the harvesting process several times. The tiller digger has a very simple design. It can be made from metal that remains after the construction and repair of the house.

To work you will need:

  • Angle Grinder;
  • welding machine;
  • electric drill;
  • heavy hammer;
  • anvil;
  • profile steel pipe 20×40 mm;
  • reinforcement 12 mm;
  • tin (preferably stainless);
  • bayonet shovel without handle.

The attachment to the tiller is made in suspended or trailed (modular) design. The hanging tool only digs out the tubers, leaving them lying on the surface for subsequent manual harvesting. The modular type potato digger not only extracts the crop from the ground, but also collects it in a mobile container on the chassis.

The digger is made in the following sequence:

  • Drawing up a drawing. The width of the digger should be within 25-30 cm.The angle of attack of the point is taken perpendicular to the opener so that the tool does not burrow into the ground.
  • The reinforcement is cut into pieces of a given length. Using a hammer and anvil, they are given the required bend.
  • A container for tubers is assembled from a profile pipe and sheet metal. The chassis or runners are welded to the container frame. The runners are made from pipes, and the chassis is taken from an old stroller, cart or lawn mower.
  • The holder and reinforcement rods are welded to the shovel. The drawbar is welded to the holder, which is fixed to the assembly container. Connections are made movable by bolts or hinges.
  • Rust and weld build-up are removed. The finished product is treated with an anti-corrosion agent and painted.

Adjustment and adjustment of the digger is carried out using stands and steel ties.

In the kit for the digger, you can immediately make a disc hiller. This tool will be needed when planting tubers after they have been buried in a plow trench. Hillers are made from old lids from pots, shaped pipes and bolts. A trolley is assembled from pipes and small wheels, onto which holders for lids are welded at a certain angle. After sharpening on stone, the discs are mounted on holders.

Improvement of the undercarriage

The first thing tiller users think about is how to make a trolley with a seat for it. The use of equipment in a normal mode with the use of levers involves the application of great physical effort. However, the use of a trailer reduces the stability of the vehicle. This problem can be eliminated by expanding the wheelbase. This is done using extension cords that are attached to the axle shaft with pins or bolts. Having solved the problem with stability, the operator is faced with another question: the unit is poorly controlled. The tiller differential helps give it good maneuverability. This device is made by analogy with the nodes of cars. Homemade unlockers for tiller are made using ordinary household tools. an angle grinder, welding and a grinder.

The low weight of the tiller is the reason for the poor grip of the wheels. Slipping is common when picking up virgin soil, working on wet ground, or driving on snow. To avoid slippage, weights are attached to the tillers.

These devices are categorized as follows:

  • Wheeled. They are discs that are mounted on wheels or hubs. Discs are made monolithic from metal, concrete or hollow filled with sand. The weight of the wheel weights can be 30-70kg.
  • External. They are made of any heavy material (steel, lead, concrete). Attached to the body with hooks or bolts. Some craftsmen weld a frame from a corner to the body. Sandbags, bricks, scrap metal and other heavy objects are placed in it.

You can improve the permeability of the tiller by installing lugs. The easiest way to make lugs is to make a rim from a strip of metal and weld the blades onto it. The rim diameter should be larger than the rims and smaller than the tires. Fitting the rim is carried out with the tires flat. After the lug is installed, the wheel is inflated.

You can improve the transmission by installing a homemade variator on the engine. The system of belts and discs will allow you to smoothly change the speed of the unit, without jerking and vibration.

What can be done from a tiller

The use of specialized equipment allows solving a wide range of tasks. However, some owners want even more features from the tiller.

Homemade products are constantly inventing something and showing what can be done from a tiller. Upgraded adapters turn into mini tractors, you can also create a snowmobile, swamp vehicle, ATV. Replacing the wheels with a caterpillar track, you get a motorized towing vehicle.

These and many other amazing homemade products, ways to create them, drawings, etc., are available at the link:

Reducing unit noise

Even the most modern and expensive cultivators make a lot of noise during operation, especially at high speeds. This factor greatly tires the operator and can serve as a reason for the deterioration of relations with neighbors. A homemade muffler will help to solve the problem. This is a task that is within the reach of any craftsman with initial skills in handling iron.

In order to make a muffler for a tiller with your own hands, you will need the following tools and materials:

  • roulette;
  • welding machine;
  • Angle Grinder;
  • electric drill;
  • hammer;
  • aluminum clamp;
  • stainless steel 2 mm thick;
  • metal shavings.

Having collected everything you need, you can begin to improve the exhaust system.


This is done in the following sequence:

  • Make 2 tubes of oval section from stainless steel. The diameter of the pipes should differ by 1-1.5 cm. Fasten the pipe joints with a welding machine.
  • In a pipe with a smaller diameter, make the maximum number of holes with a diameter of 8 mm. Wrap it with metal shavings. Coil up the shavings with steel wire.
  • Insert the smaller pipe into the larger one. Fix them in position with steel bars and welding.
  • Attach the muffler to the exhaust pipe and secure with a hose clamp.

The noise level after such an improvement will decrease several times. The service life of a homemade muffler will be at least 5 years. So, being content with little, you can significantly improve the conditions for agricultural and other work using a tiller.

Making a field sprayer for a tiller

A homemade sprayer for a tiller is necessary in cases where the area of ​​cultivated crops exceeds 20 acres. It is very difficult to do such work manually, it can take a whole day. Mechanizing this process will save a lot of time and effort.

To manufacture a sprayer you will need:

  • welding machine;
  • Angle Grinder;
  • level;
  • electric drill;
  • soldering iron for polypropylene pipes;
  • shaped or round water pipes;
  • plastic or steel barrel with a capacity of 80-100 liters;
  • wide pneumatic wheels;
  • plastic pipes;
  • rubber hose;
  • nozzles or nipples from wheel tubes.

The assembly of a homemade sprayer is carried out in the following sequence:

  • Frame manufacturing. Its dimensions are adjusted to the size of the container. The chassis is attached to the frame. For good cross-country ability, at least 4 wheels are required. In the absence of wheels, wide skids are made of aluminum.
  • The container is installed and fixed on the frame. For this, spacers and ties are used. Holes are made in the tank for the supply of high pressure hoses. The filler neck is sealed.
  • A bracket for the pump is being manufactured. A model is selected that works from a power take-off shaft (belt drive) or from electricity (tiller generator).
  • The watering system is being assembled. A durable holder is made of steel profiles. Plastic pipes are attached to it with clamps or plastic ties. Overpressure relief valve and nozzles are being installed.
  • All parts are connected together, the quality of the fasteners is checked, the tightness of the joints. The tank is filled with water, the unit is tested in various modes, the final adjustment and adjustment is performed.

A self-made sprayer will fully justify the effort invested in the first season. Thanks to this device, spraying and watering of the garden will be carried out quickly and efficiently.

Homemade variator for tiller

The variator allows you to smoothly change the speed without sudden jerks, saves fuel by transmitting torque. Tiller motors are often used as a generator to provide electricity to living quarters, local areas, and also to operate lathes.

A homemade variator can be made in different ways, the easiest is to use a ready-made variator, which can be altered for a specific tiller. Another way is to use finished parts from gearboxes and other mechanisms. Also, parts can be made independently, subject to the availability of special equipment (hot stamping is required for discs). Diagrams and videos for creating parts and assembling pulleys are easy to find on the Internet.

READ  How to make a potato planter for a tiller yourself

You can make a variator from wheel hubs, the main thing is to make a hole diameter suitable for the crankshaft. In addition to pulleys for the variator, a belt is needed, which is one of the most important parts. The belt must be strong and all parts of the variator must be regularly lubricated.

tiller do it yourself

The advantage of a homemade tiller is in its price. If it is assembled with high quality, then its characteristics will not be inferior to the factory ones.

It is necessary to determine which area will be cultivated by the tiller, and what features the soil has. It depends on how much power the engine should be.

The motor will fit from other agricultural equipment (from a chainsaw), but in this case it is necessary to supplement it with a forced cooling system. You also need to create a frame to which the engine, wheels, handle will be attached.

  • forming a furrow of suitable depth;
  • ensuring a sufficient distance between furrows;
  • stable operation of the planting material feeding mechanism.

Recommendations for planting potatoes

So that, due to the large weight of the potato planter, the tiller does not change its position and is stable, you should immediately take care of the ballast, which is attached to the front of the unit. The speed of the machine should be about 1 km / h. The formation of the furrow and the sprinkling of the planted potatoes with soil is carried out using special sealing discs. Special cultivation tines should prevent the formation of tracks after the tiller has passed.

Whenever possible, planting potatoes should be the same size. It should be carefully prepared for the growing process.

The main types of potato planters for tiller

Such devices can be single and double row. The first type is suitable for a small area. It has small dimensions and low performance.

Double row models are more productive

Some tiller potato planters allow planting of sprouted potato tubers. Others focus exclusively on the non-germinated. Also, a number of models allow connection to a specific line of tillers. Others, with a universal hitch, can be aggregated with various units. The loading hopper can be rectangular and conical.

  • flat belt system. The tubers are planted with horizontally positioned belts;
  • spoon system. For feeding potatoes, a structure consisting of spoons attached to a belt is used;
  • shaped belts, which have a special depression that resembles a spoon. When planting, an operator must be present, but there is no need to fear damage to the tubers;
  • pricking mechanism. Such devices are relevant when planting cut potatoes;
  • multi-belt design. This attachment allows you to plant two rows of potatoes at the same time.

Feeding mechanism may vary

The device and principle of operation of potato planters for tiller

Such devices consist of:

  • frames;
  • a bunker in which potatoes are laid, intended for planting;
  • wheel base;
  • mechanism that provides loosening of the soil and planting tubers on the site.

Attention! In addition to those listed, other elements may be present. for example, a container for fertilizer.

The principle of operation of such a device is very simple. The sprocket mounted on a wheel base is part of the chain elevator. When the wheels rotate, the tubers from the hopper rise along a vertical pipe, and then are dumped down into the prepared furrow.

The planting process is simple enough

How to improve a tiller with your own hands. useful devices and gadgets from an engineer

It so happened that three years ago, doctors put a pacemaker on me and gave me a disability.

And they banned hard physical labor. I faced a choice. you can’t do anything, but you want to do it. Fortunately, I am an engineer by profession, I decided to make equipment that facilitates work on the site.

The time for digging potatoes was approaching. And within 10 days I had to make a potato digger attached to the tiller.

Now I hook her to the tiller, start the engine. let’s go! You can go after the unit, you can just watch how it works from the side. this does not affect the efficiency of work.

Now I’ll tell you more about the design. The frame of the potato digger is made of a steel profile, and the hook-on device for attaching to the tiller is made of a channel. I took the support wheels from the old painting equipment, fixed them on the frame with the help of a square and welded corners, making them adjustable. to change the digging depth.

The ploughshare is made of metal from an old container, only the cutting edge is reinforced with durable metal from a steel saw. I welded steel rods from wire 8 mm thick onto the ploughshare.

On top of the frame, I installed a shaft on bearings with a washing machine shell on one side and an eccentric on the other. With the help of a belt drive, the torque from the engine is transmitted to the pulley, then, with the help of rods, back-and-forth movements are transmitted to the screen. In the design of the potato digger, I used homemade silent blocks made of metal bushings and sleeves with a thread amplifier.

I painted the details of the potato digger in the appropriate colors and assembled it into one structure. The result is a rather light but durable potato digger. It copes with its task perfectly.

During work, however, an unexpected problem surfaced: the potato digger was quickly clogged with tops. Manually mowing is contraindicated for me.

I had to re-connect my wit and, in the shortest possible time, a lawn mower for mowing potato tops was created from a chainsaw, a metal corner from the armored mesh of the bed, wheels from a baby carriage and steel tubes. By the way, I now harvest hay with the same scythe, which requires a lot on the farm.

From the corner, using a welding machine, I made a frame for lawn mowers, from the tubes I welded a steering wheel for control (I fixed the engine throttle control lever on it). I installed and fixed the chainsaw on the frame, having previously turned the gearbox down with the leading sprocket. A cutting knife made of high-strength steel was attached to the drive sprocket through a connecting sleeve.

The lawn mowers’ frame was installed on three wheels from a baby carriage. Why three? Because the fourth wheel interferes with the process of placing the tops in the aisles. From a steel bar I made a bracket for lifting the lying haulm and moving it to the left aisle. In this way, a lawn mower for mowing potato tops was easily and quickly made.

After the rows were mowed, I hooked the potato digger to the tiller and started digging. Harvesting potatoes turned into just a game! Playfully mowed, playfully dug. The only difficulty is that you and your wife have to pick potatoes by hand. But the time will come, we will think carefully, and this problem will also be solved.

By the way, at the regional exhibition-fair of technical and folk art “And the impossible is possible” my potato digger took first place in the nomination “Decorative and applied art” (inventions of a technical nature).

I want to say, you can do everything: raise good children, build a house, plant a tree, make any machine, get good harvests. The main thing is that there is a desire.

DIY hiller-ripper

I supplemented my tiller with a convenient hiller connected to a ripper (photo 1 p. 1) and adjustable in height. Instead of a standard fastening strip, I welded an elongated (2) strip of 50 × 10 mm to a prefabricated plow. I selected the length based on the distance from the bottom of the tiller to the ground, an allowance of about 10-15 cm.

The ripper was made from a U-shaped bar (found in the garage, you can cut it out of sheet metal of a suitable thickness) and three pins from the harrow.

The latter were fixed on the plate, having previously drilled holes d 12 mm in it. At one of the ends of the pins, I cut M 12 threads, inserted them into the holes and fixed them on the bar with nuts. Flattened the free ends of the pins and bent.

To attach the ripper to the hiller, I made a crossbar (3) from a metal plate with a section of 50x 10 mm and a length of 20 cm.At one end of it, I cut a groove 10 mm wide and 60 mm deep in the middle and welded a bar with a tightening bolt (4) to this end, and at the opposite end, stepping back 2 cm from the edge, drilled a hole d 12 mm.

I strung the bar on the axis of the middle pin and fixed it with a nut. Having made two assemblies, I fixed them on the tiller beam (photo 2, item 1) from a profile metal pipe with a cross section of 50 × 50 mm. For fixing the hiller and other equipment, I made universal brackets (2).

Do-it-yourself Fokin flat cutter for a tiller

When the potatoes have already bloomed, I just cut the grass between the rows. For this I use a flat cutter. Cutter (photo 3 p. 1). from steel sheet 5 mm thick.

I cut out a workpiece of the desired shape, warmed it up by 40 degrees. I sharpened the edge of the lower part on emery. Bolted on a mounting plate (2) with a cross section of 50 × 10 mm. In total, I made four such parts, I fix them on the beam with staples.


I use this device after weeding, when the soil needs to be given oxygen.

From reinforcement d 10 mm I made five hooks and welded two parts from them in the form of a rake. During work, they can be used both one at a time and together (it all depends on the width of the row spacing and the height of the cultivated crop).

To fix the ripper on the tiller beam, I welded a rectangular sleeve 8 cm long from two scraps of a 65 mm wide channel.

I welded a plate with a cross section of 50 × 10 mm to the last one. I drilled a hole d 10 mm in the sleeve next to the plate, cut a thread in it for the fastening bolt. I made two such devices, I fix them on the beam with staples.

Nest seeders

Adaptations of this kind are best suited in cases where the farmer needs to sow crops exactly in the wells or nests prepared in advance. Tiller nest drills can be successfully used for sowing seeds of garlic, onions and other small planting material.

The advantages of nesting seeders for the tiller include ease of use. Such equipment is small in size and weight. However, seeders of this kind are very slow and therefore take a long time to work with.

Seed drills

Such attachments are used for drill seeding and simultaneous planting of seeds in the soil. Depending on the purpose, there is an ordinary seeder for a tiller for garlic, a corn seeder for a tiller and a universal seeder that is suitable for sowing seeds of any crop.

The main elements of tiller drills are openers and seeding devices. The coulters are equipped with special “legs” or chains, which are necessary for planting seeds in the ground. In order to operate in areas with heavy soils, seed drills with disc openers are used, and for use on loose soil, attachments with anchor openers are used. The main advantages of seed drills are uniformity of sowing and optimal planting depth of planting material.

Dotted planters

These attachments are used for sowing seeds of garlic, onions, corn and legumes in pre-prepared nests, which are located at a certain distance from each other. Despite the complex design and large dimensions, the dotted seeders to the tiller are quite easy to operate.

The advantages of such attachments include high sowing accuracy and good productivity. Among the disadvantages should be highlighted the inability to use such seeders in areas with heavy clay soil.

Seed drills

These tiller seed drills make nests at pre-marked points in squares or rectangles. Such structures consist of a frame, support wheels, a mechanism for unwinding measuring wire from a reel and sowing sections.

The pluses of these devices for the tiller should include the ability to cover a large area of ​​the territory when working. Among the disadvantages of such seeders, a large mass stands out due to the presence of a large number of metal elements in their design. These seeders are not capable of high speed, which leads to a loss of time when working with it.

Varieties and descriptions of seeders for tiller

Tiller planting of garlic and other crops can be done with different planters. Below we will consider the design features of each of the types of seeders for a tiller in more detail.

Homemade seeder for tiller. DIY options

There are several ways to make a seeder to the tiller. When choosing a method, be sure to consider your capabilities and experience with the equipment. Next, we will consider each of the methods in more detail.

Seeder to tiller. the principle of operation of the device

The tiller garlic planter works in a very simple way. The main structural elements include the chain drive and rear wheel, which function as a single unit. The transmission acts on the wheel and sets it in motion, as a result of which the seeds fall to the ground. All planting material is contained in a special hopper, previously designed for sowing simultaneously in all rows.

In modern planters, you can adjust the sowing rate of the seeds and the size of their bulbs. This also gives the farmer the opportunity to increase or decrease the number of plantings. Different models of seeders allow you to adjust the seeding depth, which usually varies from zero to a few centimeters.

In cases where carrot seeds or other small planting material are to be planted, the farmer can use fillers. As them, you can use various cereals or bran. However, river sand cannot be used for this purpose, as it can damage fragile seeds.
