Mounted rotary mower for WEIMA WM1100-6 tillers and similar models. Designed for mowing forbs, thick grass (hay) and small shrubs up to 10 mm in diameter. It is aggregated to the tillers and functions with the PTO of the tiller (PTO turns on and off, spline)

When aggregated to the tiller, the steering wheel (tiller) turns 180 degrees, work is done at reverse speed. When operating a rotary mower, it is recommended to disassemble the corner joints every 12 hours of operation and lubricate the gears with a thick grease (lithol, grease). This will extend the life of the device many times over.

The design of the mower is adjustable. you can set the cutting height of the grass using a special slide. During the mowing process, you do not have to keep the mower suspended. by setting the required cutting height, you simply cloud it along with the entire mass of the tiller on the ground.

The rotary mower has working edges. two discs rotating towards each other, and 8 knives (4 pcs. on each disc) freely rotating and fixed with a cotter pin. Under the action of centrifugal force, when the discs rotate, the knives are straightened and work as cutting bodies

Rotary mower for tiller. This is a hinged element that can be purchased additionally as an addition to an existing device. Consists of a frame, a pair of skis, two rotors with knives, a T-shaped plate for attachment to the tiller, several gearboxes, a drive mechanism and a belt drive.

Rotary mower device

Two rotors equipped with steel blades are positioned in such a way that in operation they are able to grip line up to 80 cm wide. This is very convenient and practical, since such an area does not put a lot of stress on the tiller itself and allows you to work in not very well-groomed areas. The mowing of the grass occurs due to the rotation of the rotors, the knives of which are set so that they overlap each other during the mowing process.

Equipped with special protection to avoid damage during operation. This is its main advantage over conventional mowers. In addition, the set includes a pair of skis, which are needed to protect against contact with the ground.

A rotary mower for a tiller is necessary for mowing grass and further laying in a mow. Technical characteristics allow using it in areas with tall grass and unevenness. This is possible due to the robust frame and rigid shaft, which ensures the reliability of the entire structure.

As for maintenance, the belt drive of the rotary mower does not require additional lubrication, the design itself is light, simple and convenient. Lubricants may only be needed to tune the correct operation of the gearbox.

The Vulkan rotary mower is suitable for all models of tillers of the ZUBR, Centaur, Vulkan brands with a capacity of 8, 10 and 12 hp. Used for mowing high-yielding grasses. No need for lubricants (other than gear lubrication) thanks to the belt drive. It has a simple and reliable design that ensures their durability.

The mower is made of pipes with a diameter of 3.5 cm, with a metal thickness of 4.5 mm. The drive is carried out from the engine flywheel through two rollers to the knives using two gearboxes and a rigid shaft in the mower body. The gearbox is made of cast iron and is immediately lubricated from the factory.

The model is equipped with two rotors, each of which has 4 steel blades for cutting grass. The knives overlap each other during work, for mowing over the entire working width. To prevent the knives from touching the ground, licks are installed on both sides of the body. As a consequence, the minimum cutting height is 4-5 cm.

Connection to the tiller is carried out using a T-plate.

The mower is delivered disassembled.

Package Included:

2 rotors with knives

Homemade mowers and their types

In reality, homemade tiller mowers can be of different types:

  • rotary
  • segmental
  • mowers.

All of them are good in their own way, however, the rotary type of mowers has one indisputable advantage. they have a low sensitivity to contamination of the site, so they can be safely used on untreated areas overgrown with hard grass.

The rotary mower is based on a metal frame on which the cutting elements are attached. This design is characterized by a high degree of reliability and strength, which is important for agricultural equipment.

Homemade mower for tiller, characteristics and description

Usually, home-made mowers for a tiller, construct a frontal type: a rotary mower, a segment mower and a carriage mower.

The welded frame is the basis for the segment and rotary mowers. It is made from metal corners, 4×4 cm in size. For the wheel axle, the bearing housings are mounted on the frame. Then the working part of the mower of the selected type is made.

3 Homemade segment mowers: how to make yourself?

The segment model of the mower can be made of metal bars with dimensions of 15x50x120 mm. To do this, 12 holes are drilled in each of them for M8 bolts. Attached to these bolts is a 90 cm long guide rail with knives and teeth. In this case, the knives on the rail should be located on both sides of the bar.

  • the tiller must be in reverse mode.
  • The connecting unit is placed in the hitch socket.
  • The connection is fixed using a pivot with a spring, without which the trailing mechanism will not work.
  • The mower blades must be protected by a cover during installation.
  • Weights that are located on the wheels of the tiller for tillage must be removed, they will not be needed for mowing the grass.
  • Begin mowing with the clutch engaged at the lowest speed.

How to connect a homemade mower to a tiller

A manually assembled mower will not produce the desired result if it is not correctly attached to the tiller. There are certain rules to follow when installing the mower.

First of all, you need to put the tiller in reverse mode. Before attaching to the PTO shaft, a connecting unit is placed in the hitch socket. Using a king pin with a spring, you need to lock the connection. The lack of a spring will lead to a malfunction of the towing mechanism.

For greater safety, cover the mower blades with a protective cover. Tiller wheels contain weights to aid in tillage. Since they are not necessary when mowing grass, they should be removed. Cutting grass with the mower should be started at the lowest speed. No need to rush when cornering and make them smoothly.

If you assembled a mower for a tiller with your own hands, first of all, its work should be safe.

When a home-made mower is connected to the tiller and it works, then quite high revolutions of the discs with knives are achieved. In the event of a breakdown of the mount, you or people around you may be injured. Therefore, first think about whether you have enough skill to make such a device. After all, it will be much cheaper to purchase a ready-made mower for a tiller than medicines and treatment of crippled organs or nerves.

Do-it-yourself rotary mower for a tiller

2 Homemade rotary mower: the principle of manufacturing

A rotary mower is just like a hand lawn mower. used for harvesting grass for hay and mowing the lawn near the house. She simply crushes small vegetation, and mows high vegetation almost to the root. Homemade rotary-type mowers are usually attached to a tiller, since they are not suitable for a tractor due to their small dimensions.

Today we will talk about how a self-propelled rotary-type petrol mowing machine is assembled for the domestic tiller Neva or similar models. To do this, we will take 2 discs from a conventional grain seeder, as well as a chain and a gearbox from a saw. The choice of a chainsaw for this purpose can be any, regardless of its model.

For each disc prepared, we need four metal knives made of hardened alloy. To install them, holes of 6 mm in diameter are drilled in each disc. With the help of a shank, the knives are attached to the discs so that there is a gap between them that is larger in thickness than each of the knives by 1-2 mm.

Due to this arrangement, the centrifugal force at the moment of rotation will straighten the knives from the discs, due to which they will be able to mow the grass.

The axle for attaching the knives should be made of sturdy carbon steel. Its diameter must be at least 8 mm. For the free running of the knives, the axle is tightened by the disc to the stop. Further, the discs are attached to the welded frame, and then communication with the PTO drive is established. The discs must rotate towards each other so that the cut grass can be folded into rows.

1 What types of mowers can be made on their own?

Rotary mowers for tillers

Choice of a rotary model for moto (gasoline-diesel) block Neva, Agat, OKA, Avangard, UGRA, Mobile-K, Celina, Motor SICH

Mower. tiller-mounted grass mowing unit. It is an indispensable tool for any garden area. In Belarus, a decent chunk of land is set aside for the cultivation of grass. In residential buildings, especially where an animal courtyard is kept, as well as in summer cottages for lawn grass. Several times a year it is required to mow the grown grass. Those who have spent virginity or live outside the city know how difficult and time-consuming it is. However, today, almost everyone already has a moto-cultivator-block. This means that the issue of mowing and collecting grass is not so acute.

In Minsk and Belarus we offer rotary mowers of the following manufacturers: PJSC “Kadvi”. mowers “Zarya”, LLC “Mobil-K”. “Terminator”, JSC “NMZ Energia”. NEVA KP-05. These manufacturers produce the most popular and high-quality mowers for residents of Minsk, Grodno, Gomel, Brest, Vitebsk, Mogilev.

ATTENTION. buy mowers only from official representatives and importers in Minsk and Belarus, as there is a huge number of Chinese rotary fakes and analogues of dubious quality on the market.

Rotary mower ZARYA

Rotary models are produced at the PJSC “Kadvi” plant. official representative in Belarus PROmotoblok.by.

The mower is aggregated with almost all moto units on the market, except for most Chinese rotary versions (Shtenli, Asilak, Fermer, Stark, etc.) However, if the Chinese moto unit has a drawbar and V-belt drive, as well as with a PTO. nevertheless, it is possible to connect rotary models. There are several types of connection of Zarya to motorcycle blocks, this is either through a V-belt transmission, or through a PTO. Most often, Zarya rotary attachments are bought by the owners of NEVA, AGAT, OKA, AVANTGARDE, UGRA, Motor Sich, Mobile-K, Celina. For UGRA, a model must be purchased, which is connected through the PTO, as well as some TELINA models. For everyone else, the connection is via V-belt transmission.

By itself, it is very reliable, time-tested and has the greatest popularity in Belarus. “Zarya” is adjustable in height and can easily cope with grass over a meter in height. The working width is also an impressive 800 mm. The only drawback of these models is that after mowing, you will have to remove the grass from the site yourself, since “Zarya” only mows, but does not grind the grass.

Rotary mower NEVA

In fact, the same principle of work as Zarya, mows the grass, but does not grind. Most often bought by the owners of NEVA. The capture width is no more than 550 mm, so it will take a little longer with it to be like on the grass.

That Neva, that Zarya are not intended for lawns. They are focused more on mowing tall tall grass, while working even on virgin soil without any problems.

Therefore, deciding to buy a rotary model, you grow grass for hay, or your plot is simply overgrown, Zarya will be the most acceptable solution, but the Neva is also an excellent option.

Mower “Terminator” manufactured by “Mobile K”

Designed for mowing grass no more than a meter high, the manufacturing technology is quite primitive. However, unlike other competitors, this model is best suited for lawn care. Since the grass, falling into it, is not only cut off, but also smaller, which makes it possible to practically not remove it from the site.

JSC “KADVI” manufactures models that are reliable, safe in operation and inexpensive to maintain. The Zarya model range, developed by the designers of our enterprise, are the most popular attachments. They are used for mowing natural and high-yielding grasses as part of motorcycle blocks with a capacity of 5 to 9 hp. The productivity of the KADVI equipment is from 0.1 to 0.2 hectares per hour, depending on the model, and the design allows you to cope, among other things, with small single shrubs.

Good consumer qualities, low cost and versatility of service allow the equipment of our enterprise to withstand the competition in the market of garden equipment with honor.

Be the first to know about our new products, special offers and promotions.

Advantages and disadvantages

The main advantage of rotary mowers is that the cut grass is laid in a neat swath, which facilitates subsequent processing, although it can increase the drying time if the grass is thick. In addition, they are safer than cutting models, although you must take precautions and avoid contact with the working discs with knives.

Among the disadvantages of this rotary mower is the rapid wear of the drive belt. The fact is that in order to adapt to the relief of the treated surface, the mower has some freedom of movement in relation to the tiller, while the alignment of the pulleys of the mower drive belt and the engine is disturbed, which first leads to “loosening” of its edges, and then to its rapid exit from building. Craftsmen have adapted to make a more rigid mount, however, leaving the possibility of free movement of the mower itself.

Another drawback typical of the Zarya-1 model is some laboriousness of its installation on a tiller.

Tiller movement is carried out in reverse gear. Ensure that high gears cannot be engaged to drive forward at high speeds to prevent the tiller from running over the operator.

The complexity of these manipulations directly depends on the design of the tiller and may require many actions to switch the motor control drives located on the handles, mount the gearbox, and a number of other actions.

Device

Buyers are offered 2 models of mowers: “Zarya” and “Zarya-1”. This attachment is designed to be aggregated with tillers from different manufacturers. The principle of operation is to cut the grass with knives mounted on two rotating discs. These knives are loosely attached to the cotter pins, and when rotating, due to centrifugal force, they protrude beyond the edges of the disc, cutting off the grass.

“Zarya” is produced in versions KR.05.000-01 (02.03) for use with tillers of its own production by LLC KADVI, and KR.05.000, designed for connection to tillers of third-party manufacturers “Salyut-5”, “Neva”, etc.P.

The Zarya-1 model is a modification of the previous one and is intended for aggregation of Ugra tillers, etc., to the PTO output shaft. via the supplied or optional gearbox. Less weight makes it easier to connect the mower to the tiller. It is possible to adjust the cutting height of the grass.

Zarya mowers

In 1966, a new enterprise was created at the Kaluga Turbine Plant. an experimental motor plant. In addition to the production of gas turbine engines and power plants, the company is also engaged in the production of products for a wide range of applications. The single-cylinder engine DM-1M1 of our own design is used in motor pumps, machine tools, household appliances, and tillers. For the latter, attachments are produced, in particular, rotary mowers.

Rotary mowers “Zarya”. a reliable assistant when clearing the site

For harvesting hay, clearing the area from thickets of grass, to bring the lawn in order, especially if the cultivated area is more than a dozen acres, the trimmer may not be enough. The work will be helped by a tiller using attachments such as a rotary mower.

Features of the

The design of the rotary mower is simple and effective, it allows you to confidently mow a variety of grasses, grain crops, including those with dense stems up to 1 cm in diameter. The drive is carried out by a belt (Zarya model) from the engine power take-off pulley or by connecting a tiller to the PTO shaft (Zarya.one”).

The free movement of the knives fixed on the cotter pins makes it possible to react less to possible irregularities in the soil, dense lumps, wormholes and roots. In case of hitting a hard obstacle, the design of the disc drive is provided with safety spot welded joints that break off when the load exceeds the permissible values ​​and protect the mechanism from damage.

Manufacturing steps

The whole process of making units for a tiller with your own hands can be conditionally divided into several stages. First you need to decide what equipment is needed and what functions it will perform. For example, if we are talking about a trailer, then depending on the types of work performed, the design may change. A self-made tiller cart may have the ability to unload cargo on its own. This is very convenient when it comes to transporting bulk fertilizers, soil, harvested vegetables. In such cases, lifting the body and emptying everything is much easier than unloading it manually.

The next stage is the calculation and production of the drawing. At this stage, it is important that the tiller and the received equipment can work “in pair”. This applies to power, size, mounting method and many other factors.

And only when all the stages of preparation have been passed, you can begin to actually manufacture. Construction can take a lot of time and effort. But the result is worth it.

Required parameters

When making homemade products for a tiller, it is important to consider the factors that will allow the equipment to work correctly. You cannot assemble the machine like a neighbor working on a tractor and connect it to a tiller. The parameters of equipment and attachments must be appropriate. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the following points:

  • Tiller power. So, for equipment with a capacity of 4.5 liters. from. a load of 250 kg will be sufficient, taking into account the driver. Based on this value, you can calculate the mass of the transported cargo in the trailer, the number of allowed plows, and so on.
  • The size. The site near the house, even the largest. it is still not a field. Therefore, there will certainly be areas where large equipment will not fit. In addition, large (or, conversely, narrow) equipment is not always convenient to work with. It may not pass between trees, or, conversely, be too narrow for the garden bed. It is necessary to take into account such dimensions in advance.
  • Provide a unit for attaching the equipment to the tiller. It can be articulated, on bushings, bearing. It is necessary to select it specifically for your technique.
  • A method of attaching individual pieces of equipment to each other. One-piece units can be connected to each other by welding, rivets, bolts. The choice in this case depends on the availability of the tool, time and abilities.

These are the main questions that need to be thought through. But not the only ones. In the process of making homemade products for a tiller, there will be many questions and nuances that will need to be carefully considered in order to make the right decision.

Homemade products for the tiller. Homemade gadgets and equipment for the tiller

DIY plow

The reality is a homemade tiller plow. Only in this case it is important to find accurate and correct drawings. The quality of soil cultivation will depend on this.

The plow blade itself is usually made of steel with a thickness of 3 mm. It is important to bend it correctly. A template from an ordinary metal pipe will help to do this correctly.

The soil is cut and formed by a ploughshare. The traditional version is a double-sided design. But you can also choose a more modern version of the self-sharpening share. In the first case, it is periodically necessary to sharpen the equipment. This will evenly loosen the soil, cut the roots of weeds.

What can be made?

The tiller’s functionality is very broad. They only depend on additional devices that are attached to it. Tiller homemade products are a good alternative to factory mechanisms. The main thing is to have a little imagination and understanding of the matter. And you can make almost anything.

You can make the following units for the tiller with your own hands:

  • Plow.
  • Cultivator.
  • Hiller.
  • Milling cutter.
  • Seeder.
  • Mower.
  • Rake.
  • Trailer.
  • Bucket (shovel).
  • Dump.

The list goes on. But it is already clear that homemade equipment for the tiller allows you to perform all types of work on the site.

We make a cultivator

A homemade cultivator for a tiller is made of steel sheet with dimensions of 150×150 mm. The cutter is made of 250×40 mm plates. The plates are connected in pairs in the form of a cutter. Usually they are bolted. Next, two metal pipes are taken, which are connected with ready-made cutters. The whole structure is attached to the tiller shaft.

Trailer manufacturing

One of the most popular homemade products is the trailer. It can be considered the most basic unit for working with a tiller. As already noted, it is necessary to start with the preparation of drawings and calculations. The design may differ depending on the desire, imagination and available material.

The first step is to prepare the frame. A rectangular frame is made with the obligatory insertion of stiffeners. Places are provided to which the chassis elements and attachments to the tiller will be attached. The undercarriage is most often mounted on a homemade hub (fittings welded to the frame are edged).

Next, the chassis is directly attached. A bearing system or an axle can be used here depending on the trailer design. In the second case, it is better to perform a removable mount than a welded one. This may be needed when repairing (replacing) the axle.

The clutch mechanism is easier to purchase ready-made. You just need to attach it to the trailer. It is usually attached to a piece of metal pipe that is welded to the cart frame.

Further, the body is assembled. Use steel, stainless steel or galvanized for this. It is important to make stiffeners along the bottom and sides. Provides a place for the driver.

Homemade segment mower for tiller

Such a segmented mower for a tiller is made of metal beams 15x50x120. They need to be drilled 12 holes so that their dimensions fit the M8 bolts. In the future, a guide rail (89 cm) with teeth and knives will be attached to these bolts. Knives are installed on both sides of the timber.

Runners and clamps are attached from both ends of the timber. A wheel is attached to the main frame, which can be removed from an unnecessary stroller. Under the influence of the PTO of the tiller, the cutting part of the mower starts to work. This can be seen in more detail in the figure:

main welded frame (1), braces (2), gear wheel (3), fixing and adjustment of the braking system (4), pawl for fixing the brake (5), main arches (6 and 8), articulated body (7), leg (9), fuel line (10), regulator valve (11), container for gasoline (12), handle (13), levers (14 and 17), latching mechanism (15), fastening bolt (16), throttle control lever ( 18), clamp (19), engine muffler (20), engine (21), fixing hardware (22), fairing (23), cutting knives (24 and 25), cover (26), slide (27), element fixation (28), knife frame (29), rod (30), pin (31), plates for holding the lower and upper parts (32 and 33).

The mower, assembled according to this drawing, easily mows the grass. This homemade mower can be seen in action in the video.

Platform mower

This drawing shows a variant of a platform mower that is effectively used in the summer for mowing grass and weeds, and in the winter as a snowplow. To remove snow masses, special nozzles in the shape of stars are mounted on the equipment, and in the summer. knives. This modification is similar to a rotary mower, however, it is difficult to implement. This equipment allows you to cut hard grass and remove snow deposits with ice.

The design of this do-it-yourself equipment consists of two cylinders connected by hooks to a frame and a conveyor belt. The chassis is made from a corner or any other metal found in the workshop. The chassis is equipped with wheels that can be taken from an unnecessary stroller, and a thick plywood sheet, although ideally it is better to use metal. The dimensions of the frame may be different, but the optimum would be 800×400 mm.

The main unit consists of two cylinders (5), a belt (3), a frame (10, 16, 17, 18,20), brackets (19), hook angles (4).

Working cylinders can be made from large cans, from which it is necessary to cut out the bottom and the lid, and in their place install two rounds made of wood. Instead of cans, you can use a thin metal sheet and make 4 discs from it with an outer diameter of 200 mm and 4 with an inner diameter of 170 mm. Using bolts, connect the small discs with the large ones in pairs. Attach four knives to these disc structures.

Since the knives must rotate easily, when installing them, it is necessary to maintain a 1 mm gap between them and the discs. Nevertheless, it is necessary that all fasteners are secure so that the knives do not vomit when rotating or colliding with random stones. The drums are mounted on the frame, you must first install the bushings in them.

DIY-assembled frame. The equipment consists of an upper cross member (10) and a metal strip with corners and heel sleeves (16). For the crossbeam, you can take a metal corner 35×35 mm. The cylinders are interconnected by a belt, for the installation of which 13 mm wide grooves are drilled in the corners. For this, the lower sleeve of the driving drum is movably mounted on the bar (15), and tensioning angles (20) are installed on the upper axes of the cylinders. The corners (20) are tightened to the ends of the transverse beam using M5x65 mm screws. It is easier to make a belt for drums from a rubber strip, the ends of which are connected using a duralumin plate 2 mm thick.

Next, connect the mower to the power take-off shaft of the tiller. The work of the mower-carriage can be seen in the video presented.

Tools and materials

  • welding machine;
  • fasteners;
  • metal corner;
  • the bottom of an old metal barrel;
  • eight cutting plates;
  • wheel axle;
  • two wheels.

Homemade mower for tiller, characteristics and description

Usually, home-made mowers for a tiller, construct a frontal type: a rotary mower, a segment mower and a carriage mower.

The welded frame is the basis for the segment and rotary mowers. It is made from metal corners, 4×4 cm in size. For the wheel axle, the bearing housings are mounted on the frame. Then the working part of the mower of the selected type is made.

Segment mower

Homemade segment mower

In order to make a fully functional and working segment mower with your own hands, you should take a metal pipe with a rectangular section of 1200x50x15 mm or a piece of a regular braid canvas, and drill twelve 10-mm sockets at an equal distance for the installation of M8 fixing bolts. Subsequently, a guide metal strip with a length of 890 mm with teeth and knives will be attached to them, installed on both planes of a rectangular pipe.

The knives have backs with segments and clips of the driving lever. Clamps and runners are also installed on the pipe on both sides. A support wheel is mounted on the mower chassis. The working part of the segment mower is driven by the power take-off shaft of the used power unit.

Segment mower drawing

Thanks to the use of a segment mower, it is possible to carry out a high-quality mowing of fresh vegetation without chopping it. The video shows the operation of the equipment.

Homemade rotary mower for tiller

A home-made rotary mower on a tiller is used for mowing grass for hay and for mowing a lawn. If the grass is small, then the mower will simply chop it up, and the tall grass will be cut.

Consider a model made for the Neva Tiller and similar models. We use two discs from the grain seeder, and from the chainsaw. a chain and a gearbox. One disc requires four knives. They are made of hardened metal. To install them, holes with a diameter of six millimeters are drilled on each disc with a carbide drill. Using a shredder, we attach the knives to the discs. We also keep the gap between the knife and the shank, which is 1-2 mm larger than the thickness of the knife itself.

Due to this, the centrifugal force, when rotating, will straighten the knives from the disc, and they will mow the grass. At the same time, it should be possible to rotate the knives 360 degrees, which is done for greater safety of the knives when they collide with something solid.

Strong carbon steel is used to make the axle to which the knives will be mounted. The diameter of the axle must be at least eight millimeters. In order for the knives to have free movement, you need to tighten the axle with a disc until it stops.

These two discs are mounted on a welded frame and communicate with the PTO drive. The rotation of the discs should occur towards each other, which will allow the mowed grass to be folded into rows.

A home-made rotary mower on a tiller is used for mowing grass for hay and for mowing a lawn. If the grass is small, then the mower will simply chop it up, and the tall grass will be cut.

Consider a model made for the Neva Tiller and similar models. We use two discs from the grain seeder, and from the chainsaw. a chain and a gearbox. One disc requires four knives. They are made of hardened metal. To install them, holes with a diameter of six millimeters are drilled on each disc with a carbide drill. Using a shredder, we attach the knives to the discs. We also keep the gap between the knife and the shank, which is 1-2 mm larger than the thickness of the knife itself.

Due to this, the centrifugal force, when rotating, will straighten the knives from the disc, and they will mow the grass. At the same time, it should be possible to rotate the knives 360 degrees, which is done for greater safety of the knives when they collide with something solid.
Strong carbon steel is used to make the axle to which the knives will be mounted. The diameter of the axle must be at least eight millimeters. In order for the knives to have free movement, you need to tighten the axle with a disc until it stops.

These two discs are mounted on a welded frame and communicate with the PTO drive. The rotation of the discs should occur towards each other, which will allow the mowed grass to be folded into rows.

The main working elements of the device are knives, which are mounted on the working discs by means of a shank. The mower is driven by the PTO shaft and the sliding is carried out by rotating the lower discs.

To make a rotary mower frame with your own hands, you can use old metal corners or scrap metal, which every craftsman probably has on the farm. In order to save time for knives, you can use a tractor rotor. However, in this case, in order to improve traction and efficiency, it is desirable to reduce the rotor length from two to four centimeters, depending on the power of the unit used.

Rotary mower with your own hands

To make a rotor, you need to make 2 round plates with a diameter of 390 mm from a sheet of metal, or use the bottom of an unnecessary tin barrel from machine oil for these purposes. Exactly in the middle of these circles, weld the legs, with the help of which the rotation will take place. The welded joint must be made strong.

For the lower support, you can take a disc from the cultivator, but its diameter should not be more than 450 mm. For the axial shaft, a pipe with a diameter not exceeding 30 mm can be used, and you will also need bearings 80, 106. Make a hole on it for attaching the lower bearing, and the second bearing is installed on the pulley. Put a device with knives on the axle, and then attach the pulley to the shaft by welding. Rotation of the working discs will be carried out using two bearings.

This modification has a grip of 1100-1150 mm and a rotation speed of 1500 rpm. The entire structure of the mower must be mounted on a chassis welded from a steel corner. For the safety of work, it is imperative to install a protective casing on a homemade device. To simplify the design, the lower discs of the rotary mower can be welded to the frame.

Important! If there is no certain experience in carrying out such work, then it is better to entrust the welding work to an experienced specialist.

This homemade mower is able to cut vegetation at a speed of 8-12 km / h. At high speeds, the grass becomes more crushed, and at low speeds, it is more complete. Such equipment of a rotary type can cut vegetation 60-80mm and is used not only for mowing grass, but also for cleaning the backyard from weeds.

To facilitate the physical labor of a person on a personal plot, more than a hundred different sheds to the tiller are offered. But not everyone can afford to buy such equipment, because its cost is not cheap. The article describes a homemade tiller mower, the pros and cons of popular designs. When assembling such a mower, the most important thing is to get a safe and high-quality model. To make a mower for a tiller with their own hands, they usually use improvised units from agricultural machinery. After all, the main goal pursued by the creators of a homemade mower is to save money and achieve maximum results. Some models that ordinary gardeners come up with often surprise professionals with their idea and simplicity of design.

Usually, home-made mowers for a tiller, construct a frontal type: a rotary mower, a segment mower and a carriage mower.

The welded frame is the basis for the segment and rotary mowers. It is made from metal corners, 4×4 cm in size. For the wheel axle, the bearing housings are mounted on the frame. Then the working part of the mower of the selected type is made.

Homemade segment mower for tiller

Such a segmented mower for a tiller is made of metal beams 15x50x120. They need to be drilled 12 holes so that their dimensions fit the M8 bolts. In the future, a guide rail (89 cm) with teeth and knives will be attached to these bolts. Knives are installed on both sides of the timber.

Runners and clamps are attached from both ends of the timber. A wheel is attached to the main frame, which can be removed from an unnecessary stroller. Under the influence of the PTO of the tiller, the cutting part of the mower starts to work. This can be seen in more detail in the figure:

main welded frame (1), braces (2), gear wheel (3), fixing and adjustment of the braking system (4), pawl for fixing the brake (5), main arches (6 and 8), articulated body (7), leg (9), fuel line (10), regulator valve (11), container for gasoline (12), handle (13), levers (14 and 17), latching mechanism (15), fastening bolt (16), throttle control lever ( 18), clamp (19), engine muffler (20), engine (21), fixing hardware (22), fairing (23), cutting knives (24 and 25), cover (26), slide (27), element fixation (28), knife frame (29), rod (30), pin (31), plates for holding the lower and upper parts (32 and 33).

The mower, assembled according to this drawing, easily mows the grass. This homemade mower can be seen in action in the video.

How to connect a homemade mower to a tiller

A manually assembled mower will not produce the desired result if it is not correctly attached to the tiller. There are certain rules to follow when installing the mower.

First of all, you need to put the tiller in reverse mode. Before attaching to the PTO shaft, a connecting unit is placed in the hitch socket. Using a king pin with a spring, you need to lock the connection. The lack of a spring will lead to a malfunction of the towing mechanism.

For greater safety, cover the mower blades with a protective cover. Tiller wheels contain weights to aid in tillage. Since they are not necessary when mowing grass, they should be removed. Cutting grass with the mower should be started at the lowest speed. No need to rush when cornering and make them smoothly.
If you assembled a mower for a tiller with your own hands, first of all, its work should be safe.

When a home-made mower is connected to the tiller and it works, then quite high revolutions of the discs with knives are achieved. In the event of a breakdown of the mount, you or people around you may be injured. Therefore, first think about whether you have enough skill to make such a device. After all, it will be much cheaper to purchase a ready-made mower for a tiller than medicines and treatment of crippled organs or nerves.
