If you have a land plot, then you are familiar with how difficult it is to work on digging, loosening and hilling. It takes a lot of effort and time. In order to facilitate the solution of such problems, you can purchase auxiliary special equipment, it can be a walk-behind tractor. Using this equipment you can perform a wide range of work. This can be land cultivation, cleaning the plot, as well as transportation of crops and any other cargo.
It is impossible to remove snow, weed and spud without attachments, it is offered for sale in a wide range, among other options, it is necessary to highlight the adapter, which is a trolley with a seat. Such an addition turns an ordinary walk-behind tractor into a real tractor, but in stores it is quite expensive. Therefore, you can make the adapter yourself, like some other types of attachments.
Assembly instructions for a simple adapter for walk-behind tractor
Do-it-yourself attachments for a walk-behind tractor can well be made by almost any home craftsman. If you want to make an adapter, then it can be a steel frame made of pipe. To do this, you need to take one that has a rectangular section, while the length should be 1.7 m.
It is necessary to weld a pipe perpendicular to one of the ends, the length of which is 0.5 m. This part will become the basis for fixing the struts under the wheels. The height of the struts from the axis to the upper point will be 0.3 m. At the next stage, the braces must be fixed to the central pipe and wheel hub. The length of the products will depend on the slope and angle.
The square frame can be any size. In this example, the following dimensions will be considered: 0.4 x 0.4 m. If you decide to make such attachments for a walk-behind tractor with your own hands, then you need to strengthen the channel with a length of 0.4 m to the rear end of the frame. Assemble the side pipes a single design is possible with bolts. To be able to adjust, a lever should be welded to the frame, which should have three elbows, their length will be as follows: 20, 30 and 50 cm, respectively. In order to increase the applied forces, the lever should be supplemented with a 75 cm lever. The coupling unit can be purchased or manufactured independently. The duration of operation of the attachment will depend on the quality of the coupling. On a metal support, it is necessary to fix the seat, which is welded to the central pipe. On this, you can assume that you managed to make attachments for a walk-behind tractor with your own hands. Its advantages are low price and simplicity of design.
Coupling assembly recommendations
If you decide to do the attachments for the walk- behind tractor with your own hands, then you should familiarize yourself with the instructions for the manufacture of the coupling unit. The simplest design will be a 15-centimeter pin, which is installed in the hole of the towbar towbar drawbar. The disadvantage of this option is quite rapid wear, because under the influence of a rotating trailer, holes for the hitch are broken. In order to reduce the wear rate, the hitch can be lengthened.
Seat Installation Recommendations
Drawings of attachments for walk-behind tractor can be prepared independently. From them you can find out that the adapter is attached to the equipment using a single coupling, which consists of two parts. The first is required to connect the equipment, while the other is an adjustable adapter between the equipment and the lifting mechanism.
To increase the number of tools used, the adapter can be supplemented with a universal double hitch. Such equipment for the Salute motoblock is also suitable. However, to familiarize yourself with the instructions, it is important to inquire how the seat is installed. With a step of 80 cm from the front edge, the seat must be secured to the spinal frame. In this case, you need to use bolts. After the whole system is assembled together, it must be checked for operability.
Before making this attachment, it is necessary to prepare drawings. In them you can identify the main nodes - ploughshare and dump. For work items 3 mm steel should be used, however, to begin with, experts advise working on a removable share. A disk borrowed from a circular saw will act as the most suitable material for it. For lack of it is possible to use ordinary steel, which was not subjected to heat treatment.
The cutting part will be the working element of the braid, which is beaten on the anvil. The mounted plow should also include a blade, you can start manufacturing it after you finish with the share. As a material for this you can use a 50 mm pipe, the thickness of which will be 5 mm. The blade can be prepared using a gas cutter. To begin with, a template is cut, at the next stage, the workpiece can be brought to the anvil, and then to the grinder.
Homemade attachments in the next step can be put together. To begin with, you should use the layout assembly option, which is made of thick cardboard. The parts are glued together, while you need to adhere to the necessary angles. After finishing the blade, share and auxiliary parts, it is possible to prepare a steel 2 mm sheet of square shape with a side of 500 mm. An indentation of 40 mm is made from the edges, then a ploughshare is applied and spot welding is done on both sides.
The rack shield should also be docked with the share, the joint should be held in an upright position. The shield must be positioned slightly higher compared to the shares of the share. Indentation is necessary for cutting soil. It is important to tightly dock the share with the blade; there should be no gaps. The design should end up being almost cast. Between the upper edge of the shaft and the blade of the share must be set to an angle in the range from 6 to 8 ° C.
A do-it-yourself mower for a walk-behind tractor can also be made. It is used to care for the lawn, mowing grass in the hay. For work, you should prepare the chains from the chainsaw gear, as well as a couple of disks borrowed from the grain seeder. Knives can be made of hardened metal, 4 knives will be required for each disk. Drill holes with a diameter of 6 mm on the discs. Knives should be strengthened on the disk using shanks. The clearance between the knife and the blade should be 2 mm larger than the thickness of the knife.
When a do-it-yourself mower for a walk-behind tractor is made, the axes of the knife attachment can be made of carbon steel, with a diameter of 8 mm or more. The axle should be tightened with the disc to the stop so as not to impede the movement of the knives.
The discs should be fixed on the welded frame and tied with a drive - with additional handles on the construction of the walk-behind tractor. Gears can be borrowed from a VAZ car. The discs should rotate towards each other, this will allow mowed grass to stack in rows. A protective cover can be installed on the drive.
