How to Use a Rotavator

Popular amongst amateur and professional gardeners, rotavators are very handy pieces of equipment used to till or 'cultivate' the earth – particularly before sewing seeds or bedding in new plants.They can be used on vegetable patches, plant borders, allotments and fields, and come in many different sizes and models suitable for various terrains and plot sizes.


If your ground is relatively flat and the soil is in fairly good condition, you may only need a light duty Rotavator to till the earth. There are medium and heavy-duty versions available if you are tackling more difficult or sloping terrain, or larger plots of land.

Steps

  1. Weed the area you are planning to cultivate beforehand to prevent spreading the weeds over the entire area.In dry, warmer weather cut the weeds with a lawn mower or blade a few days before cultivating. In wet weather cut the weeds about a fortnight beforehand to make sure there is adequate time for them to dry out.
  2. Move along slowly, keeping your hands and feet away from the rotavator's blades when it is working.
  3. Move along in strips as you would with a lawnmower, but making each strip overlap a little to ensure complete coverage.
  4. Make a second pass preferably at a right angle to the original strips.You may want to make several passes for the best results.
  5. Dig approximately two to three inches deep on your first pass, then set the rotavator to dig a little deeper on the next pass, and so on.

  • Try to maintain a relaxed hold on the machine so that if it hits a harder object (such as a rock) and 'leaps' or bucks you can just direct it back on track afterwards. This will make the job less tiring.
