- I Soil cultivation and fertilisation Specially shaped chopping knives plough the ground in which fertiliser, seeds, etc. are then worked into the soil.
- I Setting the working depth The tilling depth is set using the rear-mounted adjuster. Depending on the type of soil and soil moisture, the correct setting depth must be set.

The highlight: the comfortable reverse
Some of our cultivators have a reverse gear. This allows you to change the direction, which increases the mobility and maneuverability of the device. The maneuverability of the cultivators combined with the powerful motors and the ergonomic handlebars create perfect conditions for soil loosening in your garden. The hardened blades work reliably through all soils and transform it into fine, crumbly soil, which is then ready for the addition of seedlings or new seeds.
