Homemade cars, tractors, ATVs and ATVs
DIY car tipper
Self-made tipper for a car made by hand: drawings, photos of homemade designs.
We present to your attention a simple and practical lift-tipper for a passenger car.
Materials for making homemade products:
- Upright post and horizontal beam are made of rectangular tube 40 x 80 x 3 mm.
- The traverse is made of a pipe 40 x 20 x 2 mm.
- Supports from a round pipe with a diameter of 50 mm.
- A pipe that rests against the wheels of a car with an approximate diameter of 50 mm (you need the pipe to freely enter the support pipes), 3 meters long.
- The arm is 1 meter long.
The lift itself.
The tipper device works as follows: two bolts without nuts are inserted into the holes on the vertical rack, one bolt is under the beam on which the machine lies, the second fixes the lever.
To raise the machine by 10 cm (this is the distance between the holes on the vertical post), you need to remove the fixing lever bolt, move the lever to the next hole and fix it by inserting the bolt.
Pulling the lever up while the beam on which the machine lies will not pass the next highest hole. As it goes through this hole, without releasing the lever, we rearrange the bolt into this hole. With such permutations, these two bolts, and we raise the car, the whole process takes no more than a couple of minutes.
Also included are drawings of a tipper for cars.
What adapter designs exist?
With this attachment, you can greatly simplify the use of the tiller. After all, it acts as a transitional link connecting the unit itself with other functional elements: nozzles for planting and hilling potatoes, flat cutters, a plow. By installing equipment, you can automate gardening work as much as possible. For example, when using special equipment with attachments, you can increase the working speed from 5 to 10 km / h.
There are several types of adapters. In general, the structure is a trolley attached to the rear of the tiller, equipped with a comfortable seat
Some models are equipped with a lifting lever, which greatly simplifies the control of the mechanism and the movement of the unit itself on the site. Other adapters, in addition to agricultural work, can also be used for transporting goods. They are equipped with a special body. The adapters can have short or long drawbars, depending on their function. Short drawbar models are designed to work with light tillers, while long drawbar models are designed for heavier implements.
There are also models with a telescopic drawbar on sale, as well as those in which you can adjust the track width.
The adapters are fixed to the tiller using a single enlarged hitch, which consists of two parts: the first part is needed to connect the equipment to the unit. And the second acts as an adjustable adapter between the equipment itself and its lifting mechanism. To increase the number of implements used simultaneously, the adapters are equipped with a double universal hitch.

Stage # 2. production of main parts
The frame of the structure is made of metal pipes and corners
The body of the structure is made of steel sheet. The height of its sides is made no less than 30 cm.
When making stands for the adapter wheels, you can use the diagram below
The simplest option for making a coupling assembly is a 15 cm long pin, which is stuck into the hole in the drawbar of the U-shaped motoblock “towbar”. The disadvantage of this option is quick wear: under the action of a freely rotating trailer, the hitch holes are quickly broken. To reduce wear, it is advisable to lengthen the U-shaped chain.
Stage # 1. drawing up a kinematic diagram
To ensure the balance of the structure and prevent additional overloads at the design stage, it is necessary to draw up a kinematic diagram. You can make it yourself or use a ready-made version.
This circuit was developed for the manufacture of an adapter designed to operate on the Neva trailer
Assembling a simple structure
A simple adapter model is a metal frame. It is made from a pipe with a rectangular cross-section 1.7 meters long. At one of the ends of the pipe, a 0.5 meter long pipe is welded perpendicularly, which will serve as the basis for attaching the racks for the adapter wheels. The height of the struts themselves from the wheel axle to the top point is 0.3 meters.
For the manufacture of the structure, you can use the wheels removed from the garden cart. They can be installed on bushings, which are quite simple to perform on a conventional lathe. Bearings of the appropriate size are put on the finished bushings.
After that, the braces must be attached to the central pipe and the hubs of the wheels of the adapter by welding. The length of the products depends on the angle of their inclination relative to the structure. The square adapter frame can also be made in any size. In our case, this is a frame of 0.4×0.4 meters. To equip the attachments, a channel 0 with a length of 0.4 meters is welded to the rear end of the frame. The assembly and connection of the side pipes of the structure is carried out using bolts.
The seat is placed on a metal support that is welded to the central tube. The adapter is ready for use.
Arrangement of a multifunctional model
For the manufacture of a multifunctional device, you must prepare:
- Steel pipes and corners;
- Sheet steel;
- Two wheels;
- Comfortable sitting;
- Welding machine and tool kit.
This adapter is a multifunctional model. It can be used for basic agricultural work and for transporting goods over uneven terrain over short distances. The structure can be equipped with such agricultural implements as a plow, harrow, tiller, potato digger. Snow scraper can be attached to adapter during winter months.
The main elements of the equipment are: the frame and hitch devices, as well as the wheelset and seats
The manufacturing process of the adapter at home takes place in several stages.
Stage # 3. installing the seat
On the backbone frame of the adapter beam, stepping back 80 cm from the front edge, fix the seat. It is fixed with bolts. The adapter is ready. It remains only to check the functionality of the multifunctional device.
DIY trailer adapter
With the help of this unit, the tiller can be easily converted into a mini tractor, which makes it possible to automate a large number of work on the processing of the personal plot. The design of the trailer adapter consists of the following elements:
- Metal supporting frame.
- Cross bar.
- Governing bodies.
To make a supporting frame, you should use a pipe of any section, the length of which ranges from 1.5 to 1.7 meters. On the one hand, a device for attaching to the tiller is welded, and on the other, a transverse beam. The width of the second element is selected in accordance with the dimensions of the tiller’s wheelbase. Then braces are attached to the bar to increase the rigidity of the structure and wheel stands.
Most often, additional units are attached to the tiller adapter by means of a single hitch. You also need to think about controlling the equipment, and the best option in this situation will be a lever, switching which will lead to a change in the position of the auxiliary devices.
The last step in creating a trailer adapter is to install the seat, and for this, a stand is attached in the middle of the crossbeam.
Homemade disc hiller
The optimal type of hiller for a personal plot is disc. When working with it, it is not required to apply great efforts, and when the speed of movement is reduced, the power increases. Do not forget that the disc hiller is a universal tool, because it can be used not only after planting crops, but also during their growth.
The design of this type of attachment is not very complex and includes:
- Screw type talers.
Thanks to the presence of talers, it becomes possible to adjust the angle of inclination of the working discs. It is this factor that affects the depth of their immersion in the soil and the force applied during work.
Discs can be taken from worn-out agricultural equipment, for example, an old seeder, or made of high-quality steel, the thickness of which is 1.5-2 mm. The outer edges are bent, and a hole is drilled in the center for attaching to the frame.
How to make attachments for a tiller with your own hands
the tiller is one of the most useful and demanded technical devices among those used on the personal plot. However, this statement is only valid with optional equipment. If the size of the cultivated land plot is small, then it is advisable to purchase branded units. That is why the question of how to make attachments for a tiller with your own hands is popular.

Homemade devices for the tiller
The list of accessories is not limited to a mower, plow or harrow. This list is long enough, and no other tiller has such a strong package. After calculating the amount that the purchase of all the necessary equipment will cost, many refuse this venture. It should also be remembered that not every model can be considered universal.
Simply put, when purchasing units for one tiller, it is very difficult to guarantee their operation on another. However, if there is a desire and a certain baggage of knowledge, many additional devices can be made independently.
Their drawings are often found on the Internet, but it is important to make sure that they are compatible. When developing attachments from scratch, you need to focus on the available tiller model.
Making a potato digger
This unit is able to significantly facilitate the work of harvesting all tuberous crops, not only potatoes. Among the main structural elements of the unit, it is necessary to highlight:
- Welded frame.
- Drum cleaner.
- Editorial node.
A ploughshare is a movable element of a potato digger and can be made of sheet iron. The cut plates should be sharpened, but at the same time all edges should be blunt so as not to damage the tubers. Frame fabrication should also be straightforward. To solve this problem, you will need a corner, channel No. 8 and a profile pipe. Frame sizes are selected individually, and the required amount of materials is determined on site.
The main element of the entire structure of the unit is the editorial unit. To make it, you need two metal cylinders, into which the connecting sleeves are then installed. After that, it is necessary to make the hubs from a metal pipe, the diameter of which is 25 mm. They are used for attaching sprockets, pre-fastened to bushings by means of keys.
The most difficult to manufacture is the cleaning drum, which consists of two roller chains with 94 links each. The chains, in turn, are mounted on special rods, and then the finished element is attached on two axes. The result is maximum mobility.
The torque from the tiller motor is transmitted to the share connected to the casing. During movement, the angle of inclination changes, and digging movements are performed. To adjust the angle of inclination of the working element of the structure, and, consequently, the depth of the dig, you can make a slider. An excellent material for the manufacture of this part will be fluoroplastic.
Homemade products to Tiller Neva
Attached and trailed equipment significantly expands the functionality of the trailers. Some equipment is included, such as cutters, but the rest must be purchased. If you purchase the entire arsenal of additional devices for the Tiller Neva, then it will be too expensive, therefore, homemade products and inventions from improvised means are so in demand.
What adaptations for a tiller can be made at home?
- Adapters, trolleys
There are detailed articles and videos on the Internet on how to make these devices. Also an important improvement for the tiller is the muffler. It comes out of the box as part of the exhaust system, but does not always cope with noise suppression. You can make a quiet muffler according to this scheme:
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.

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.
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.
What can be done from a tiller
The use of specialized equipment allows us to solve 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: https://specmahina.ru/motoblok/samodelki-iz-motobloka.html
The dump is a necessary device that is needed at any time of the year. The front knife is used to clean snow, plan the area, dig holes and move bulk materials. Such equipment for the Neva tiller is of good quality, but not everyone can afford it. Do-it-yourself dumps require minimal financial investment. By installing the front knife on the Neva tiller, you can solve many household tasks. With levers and hydraulics, a homemade shovel can also be used as a loader.
To make a blade, you will need the following tools:
- welding machine;
- electric drill;
- Angle Grinder;
- acrylic paint;
- barrel 200 l;
- reinforced rubber;
- sheet steel 5 mm;
- profile pipe 40×20 mm;
- paint and brush;
- bolts and ties.
Before making a dump, it is necessary to calculate the correspondence of the power of the tiller to the size of the bucket. Excessive loading leads to rapid wear of parts and mechanisms of the unit. Depending on the weight and power of the machine, shovels are made 60-100 cm wide and 20-30 cm high.
DIY snow removal homemade products for the tiller are made in the following sequence:
- Marking the barrel, sawing it into 3 identical parts vertically. Cutting 1 piece into strips 5 cm wide.
- Fastening 2 blanks with bitumen and rivets. Aligning the edges of the product. Bucket reinforcement with transverse struts.
- Fastening of sheet metal strips along the edges of the shovel. This is done with welding or bolts.
- Drilling bolt holes. Attaching a rubber strip to the bottom of the bucket.
- Shovel hitch making. It is done by attaching a piece of pipe and a semicircle of sheet metal to the blade by welding. Holes are made on the sector to adjust the angle of attack. A self-made snow removal device is attached to the tiller bracket with an adapter from a profile pipe.
The finished product needs to be cleaned and painted. All bolted connections must be lubricated regularly to prevent corrosion.
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.
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:
- welding machine;
- Angle Grinder;
- electric drill;
- 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 a 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.
Potato digger for tiller
Potato diggers of various types 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;
- 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. 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 pot lids, profile pipes and bolts. A trolley is assembled from pipes and small wheels, onto which holders for lids are welded at a certain slope. After sharpening on the stone, the discs are mounted on the holders.
Do-it-yourself car tipper lift
Homemade lift tipper for a car: photo and description of manufacture.
Greetings! Started putting the body in order to make it more convenient, made a homemade tipper lift.
Since the Audi is a heavy and large car, the material also required serious.
So, you need 4 pieces of pipe 40×40 mm, wall thickness 3 mm, length 2 m. The rest. improvised means. two corners, the size is not important and two pieces of channel for the upper and lower stops.
Between the two pipes that lift the car, after the first test, it was necessary to weld a meter-long pipe remainder, for strength. Thus, the structure has acquired the required rigidity.
The pulling force is obtained using a 3 ton hydraulic jack. The holes in the vertical beam are 12 mm in diameter and are in 10 cm increments, since the jack travel is 11 cm.
This is how it all works:
I put the lift under the front spar and, by rearranging the lower stop and the upper stop pin, I easily raise the car by about 40 degrees, after which it becomes convenient to perform the necessary manipulations on the bottom and sills.
And there is something to do here. There was once a rear jack here. It looks scary, but in fact, everything can be solved.
Well, that’s fixed. Everything is end-to-end and with a continuous seam. The metal is taken from the old door from C4. During the welding process, VAGovskoe fat melts and fills our patch from the inside, providing anticorrosive. Outside, then we will also do it right. There is a similar problem in front:
In general, a convenient adaptation turned out to be for car repair.
Raising and lowering the car takes about fifteen minutes with smoke breaks. All this is kept quite reliably, under the wheels I put wheel chocks, and under the rear part. a suitable stump for insurance. I recommend to everyone!
Required tools and materials
There is a certain set of tools that are required to make a coupler, but they do not include anything exotic. Usually, everything that is required to assemble such parts is on the farm of any owner who cultivates his land plot. The following tools are required:
- welding machine;
- Angle Grinder;
- drill or drilling machine, drill bits for metal;
- measuring instruments (tape measure, ruler, square);
- fasteners (bolts, studs).
It must be emphasized that in this case it is very important that the holes that you will drill into the parts exactly coincide with the bolts and studs. a backlash in diameter is undesirable, since it will shorten the service life of the used attachments and trailers. At the same time, during the manufacturing process, it makes sense to first make holes in the part with a smaller diameter (from 5 mm), and then expand with wider drills (up to 12-16 mm, depending on the diameter of the bolts). this approach will speed up and facilitate this part of the work, at the same time allowing you to align the holes as accurately as possible.
For the manufacture of the case, you can use a channel of a suitable size, and if there is none, you can cut out a part from a metal sheet.
The option of an adjustable hitch is very convenient. this design will allow you to attach attachments of different classes, generations and brands. Even if at the moment this design is not relevant, do not forget that different devices may appear on the farm over time, and the possibility of convenient aggregation of any of them will significantly expand the choice, allowing only to proceed from the desired performance characteristics of the equipment.
Tiller hitch selection
Any attachment or hitch for a tiller, be it a harrow, hiller, mower, trailer or any other equipment, is attached with a hitch. If the basic part is not suitable, the owner has a choice. to purchase a suitable one or to make a hitch for the tiller with his own hands. In any case, when deciding which version of the node can most closely match the tasks that the unit performs, a number of points must be taken into account, including:
- features of a tiller or cultivator;
- the scope of the unit. the functions that it performs;
- equipment that must be aggregated with it;
- the need for versatility.
Based on this, you should carefully familiarize yourself with the most frequently used structures and navigate in the choice, based on the features of the one that is best suited in this case.
In this video, you will learn more about the hitch:
When choosing a hitch for a tiller, it is worth taking as a basis the most suitable type of part. There are several types:
- single / double. used in the presence of different types of weights, depending on which ones are used and in what quantity;
- reinforced. optimal for heavy units; its distinctive feature is that it is more massive. it has a greater thickness and length, which allows additional equipment to go deeper into the ground;
- adjustable. providing the ability to change the angle of the shaft, due to which you can adjust the level of attachment attachment and thereby increase the efficiency of work;
- universal hitch. allowing aggregation with several models.
If the hitch to the tiller of the desired design is not on sale or there are some of your own requests for it, it is not so difficult to make it yourself, since we are talking about a fairly simple device. Some craftsmen, who prefer to make many “accessories” to the tiller with their own hands, make a “pipe-in-pipe” coupling for the tiller trailer, make it from a cardan, from a crosspiece, from other improvised parts left over from various mechanisms. The owners of such devices note that it is not difficult to make such a unit, and share their experience and drawings of the coupling for the tiller.
Assembling a hitch for a tiller with your own hands involves the use of drawings. There are quite a few different options available, but it is optimal to take the most suitable one as a basis and adjust it taking into account the parameters of your technique. The drawing should show the following details:
- two U-shaped components, identical in all respects, but with a different number of holes. 6 in one, 8 in the other;
- body, including two threads with diameters M12 and M16 and equipped with a connecting structure for fastening with one of the nodes;
- adjustment component. a lever located on the body of the part, its design consists of a screw connected to the bracket and for convenience has a handle; it is important to provide for the correct direction of the bracket. only up or down and in such a way that it does not interfere with the operation of the tiller;
Since the unit in any case provides for a connection with a hitch, the details of the placement of the connection can be studied in its standard instructions.
DIY Tiller Hitch
Auto mechanic specializing in agricultural machinery
Some owners of small agricultural machinery purchase it, initially counting on the versatility of the unit, others buy it for one specific purpose, and over time they can expand the range of tasks that a tiller can do. But in any case, the fulfillment of most of the functions on the arable or adjacent plot is provided by various attachments, which are attached with the help of such a part as a hitch to the tiller and, in fact, serves as the key to its versatility.
Often, the owners of agricultural units find that the factory equipment is far from perfect, the design of the coupling is not suitable for the current needs of the land economy, or is simply not reliable enough. Fortunately, there is always the option to equip your tiller with a hitch that will maximize your performance.
The hitch can be done by yourself
Do-it-yourself hitch for a tiller
The great advantage of a home-made device is that the owner takes into account his requests and makes it based on the input he needs: tiller model, load, attachment parameters.
But the first thing to consider is that in any case there will be an increased load on this node, so it is important to pay careful attention to the dimensions, design and level of strength of all parts of this part. Correctly specified parameters of the device will provide the most reliable aggregation with the tiller, the necessary mobility of the unit and the durability of its use.
When deciding on the design, pay attention to the dimensions of the towbar of your tiller and the features of the attachments (already available and the one that is planned to be purchased). The primary task is to ensure maximum compatibility of the unit with all necessary attachments and trailers. Equally important is the ease of use and the possibility of aggregation with equipment with different parameters.
The main working part, as a rule, has a U-shape and serves as a bracket, which, through the holes in it, is fixed to the chiller. The attachment stand is attached to the other side of it.
Before assembling the hitch, carefully read the instructions.
To make a universal joint, you need the most even horizontal surface. a workbench or work table. The scheme for manufacturing a trailer device (hitch) for a tiller is as follows:
- Make the markup in accordance with the drawing: mark the contours of the parts on the workpiece.
- Use a drill or drilling machine to make holes according to the markings. Make sure of their accuracy using a caliper and a bolt (stud), which will be used for fastening. Achieve the optimum bore diameter where there is no play or jamming of the fasteners. Countersink the holes. this will facilitate further work and protect you from injury.
- Weld the joints. It is best to use electric welding, in which heating occurs only at the joints without much damage to the working qualities of the metal.
- Assemble the part. Connect the bracket and channel with bolts. If your design has an adjustment mechanism, fix it as well.
Important! Fasteners, with which the hitch is fixed to the tiller through the holes in the nodes, must be of the same quality and strength as the part itself.
Let us remind you once again that the part is manufactured in order to maximize the versatility of the tiller. With an optimally suitable hitch, convenient aggregation and long-term efficient operation of any mounted or trailed equipment, including a plow, harrow, hiller, potato planter, various types of mowers, trailers and any other devices, is possible. And since the fastening elements on different equipment may differ, which often complicates the possibility of their compatibility with the tiller, it is the successful design of the hitch and the possibility of its adjustment that solve this problem.
After assembling the part, it is important to attach it correctly. The installation rules are simple enough, but it is important to adhere to them. The actual connection of the equipment to the tiller is reduced to a very simple action: you need to align the holes of the hitch and the hitch and fix them with bolts or pins. Radial holes allow you to adjust the position of the connector during operation. After installation, you need to tighten the elements of the threaded fastening of the unit with the tiller. After that attachment is connected.
After the initial aggregation of devices, a final commit will follow, which must be done immediately before starting work. The regulating components (screws) should be loosened, the optimum fixation level should be found, and then tightened with wrenches. Depending on the design, a removable threaded axle can be installed on the bracket, into which an M16 screw is screwed.
And there are a few more recommendations to be made. To preserve the working qualities of the metal and increase the durability of the part after assembly, it is advisable to cover with an anti-corrosion compound or paint for metal.
Considering the possibility of adjusting the structure in different ranges, it is possible to set radius grooves and fix them to zero. After starting work, it is necessary to carefully observe the connection during the first meters of movement and, if necessary, make additional adjustments. The presence of a control lever allows you to change the level of fixation and fix the attachment for a greater or lesser plowing depth.
You need to think over everything to the smallest detail, so that during the assembly of equipment there are no difficulties. To do this, you need to understand:
- screwing, riveting or welding will connect non-separable units and parts;
- how axles, bearings, bushings, hinges will be connected;
- which seat is better to install (simple or rotating);
- from what to make an emphasis on the legs for the parking;
- Do you need a tipping body, to which you will have to add a mechanical tipper or a self-dumping unit with a special handle;
- which unit of attachment to the tiller to select (on bearings, bushings or articulated).
Having dealt with all these questions, you can start preparing a list of necessary materials and calculating the approximate cost of the future trailer.
Do-it-yourself multifunctional trailer for a tiller: stages of work, video instruction
Having decided on the dimensions and sketching a drawing, you should calculate how many meters of rolled metal and how many channels will be needed to make a homemade trailer. This is necessary in order to protect yourself from unnecessary costs for the purchase of unnecessary parts and fasteners.
Required materials and tools:
- welding machine;
- steel corners 40×40 mm and 50×25 mm;
- timber measuring 50×50 mm;
- boards 20 mm thick;
- cutting pipes of round and rectangular cross-section;
- complete wheels with hub.
The future trailer will consist of four main units connected by welding.
- The frame is assembled from scraps of pipes and corners of 40×40 mm and 50×25 mm and the frame is connected by welding.
- The body is made of 20 mm planks, the nodes of which are then sheathed with steel corners.
- With the help of three supporting beams, the role of which is played by wooden beams, the body is mounted on the trailer frame.
- Wheels are installed on the structure. Before this, it is necessary to sharpen the ends of the axle rod so that its diameter matches the dimensions of the hub bearings. It is necessary to follow the length of the rod. When assembled, the wheels must not protrude beyond the rims of the body.
- Through the corner supports and gussets, the rod is welded to the body of the longitudinal hinge and the side members.
- The trailer will be attached to the tiller using a do-it-yourself console. The lower part of this element is the axis around which the pivot unit rotates. The upper part should be made so that it follows the contours of the hiller holder. The console is attached to the attachment bracket.
- To make the wheels of the trailer work independently of the wheels of the tiller, and make the equipment easy to operate, it is recommended to insert the drawbar into the body of the longitudinal hinge and secure with thrust rings.
The tiller trailer is ready. Now you can fix the footrest and the driver’s seat, from which the equipment will be controlled.
Do-it-yourself trolley trolley: dimensions, drawings, video
Equipment such as a tiller is an excellent assistant when working in the field, garden, country house or farm. To expand the capabilities of the equipment, you can attach a towing device to it and transport soil, garbage, crops, tools and other heavy or bulky goods. You can make a trailer for the tiller with your own hands, spending just a few days on it. The result is an irreplaceable assistant that will facilitate further work.
Simple trailer for the “Neva” tiller
To start making a cart with your own hands, you need to prepare the following materials and tools:
- duralumin sheet with a thickness of 2 mm;
- steel sheets with a thickness of 0.8 mm;
- springs and wheels;
- steel pipes 25×25 and 60×30 mm;
- welding machine;
- Angle Grinder.
The trailer frame will be a one-piece structure mounted on a frame grille. For its manufacture, two traverses 25×25 mm must be made transverse and pipes 60×30 mm must be attached to them so that the result is a lattice.
Two longitudinal pipes are welded to the finished lattice, on top of which a 25×25 mm strapping is attached by welding. Sheets of steel will serve as material for the sides, which are cut to the required dimensions and welded.
The turn of the beam has come, for the manufacture of which two channels will be needed. The elements are inserted into each other, after which the wheel axles are put on one of the ends of the resulting part.
The spar is connected by means of springs, the end of which should be put on the beam axle and the shackle axle. Then, the central part of the springs must be welded to the same beam with stepladders.
Last but not least, you need to make a drawbar with your own hands from 60×30 mm pipes. They should be docked and, by welding, one part should be attached to the trailer, and the other to the side members.
A simple tiller trailer is ready. I would like to note that experts recommend using a welding machine to connect its parts. Such a mount will allow you to operate the structure for a long time.
First of all, you need to think about what size the trailer should be so that it fits a certain tiller, and it is convenient to use it. After that, you will need to sketch a drawing or a sketch of the trolley, on which to display the structure from different angles, put down all the dimensions and draw the nodes.
Homemade trailer to the tiller from car parts
Having drawn up a drawing in advance and prepared the necessary materials and tools, you can assemble such a trailer with your own hands in 1-2 days.
For work you will need:
- front axle shafts from Zhiguli or Moskvich;
- channel 65 mm along the body length;
- corners 60×60 mm;
- two pipes 2 m long;
- one pipe 60×40 mm, 3-5 m long;
- welding machine.
The bearing part of the structure will be the axle, which is made from a channel. Its length depends on the length of the future trailer. On both sides of the channel, the axle shafts from the car are connected by welding. Profile pipes are installed on top:
- One pipe is centered. She will act as a drawbar. Its length must be selected in accordance with the dimensions of the hitch.
- Two-meter pipes are laid along the edges of the channel, in the place where it meets the ends of the axle shafts. As a result, the channel joint must divide each pipe in half.
- Short pipes are laid parallel to each other and fastened perpendicularly with corners.
To ensure the structure of strength and rigidity, profile corners or pipes should be pulled from the front corners of the trolley. Joints can be bolted or welded.
The trailer frame is ready. Now you can install on it a simple wooden body made with your own hands, a seat and attach it to the drawbar.
After watching the video instructions and studying the article, you can understand that in order to make a trailer for a tiller with your own hands, you do not need to be a designer or mechanic. To implement the plan, you will need a drawing, the necessary tools, materials and a little desire and free time.
