Adjusting the plow on a power tiller
The adjustment of the plough on the motor-block must be done with the maximum observance of rules, because the quality of plowing directly depends on it. It is carried out in the following steps.

First the wheels of the power tiller are put on the specially prepared stands and its balancing is performed. The height of these stands directly defines the depth of ploughing (the height of stands for ploughing frozen soil should not exceed 20-25 cm, for spring soil. 15-20 cm).
After this, the adjustment bolts are used to set the angle of the plow so that its “heel” is parallel to the surface of the ground.
After the plough has been fixed, remove the single axle tractor from the stand and place it on the ground. its steering wheel is set so that the handles are at the height of the plowman’s waist.
The last stage of plough adjustment is to assess whether the plough is correctly adjusted. To do this, carry out a test ploughing of two to three furrows, measuring the depth of cut and the quality of the soil felled, as well as the distance between the furrows. If the distance between the furrows is more than 10 cm, or if they overlap, readjustment is necessary.
How to mount the plough to a single axle tractor
Before setting up the plough, prepare the single axle tractor itself and mount the plough to the single axle tractor. To do this, the single-axle tractor is placed at the place of work, the wheels with rubber tires are removed, and the steel wheels are installed. This is done to reduce slipping of the tiller when plowing because of the resistance of the soil.
After that, proceed to attach the existing plow to the attachment. At that fastening nuts should not be tightened completely in order to be able to adjust the aggregate. Then two steel pins are used for fixing the unit to the mounting bar of the power tiller. After these operations the plough can be adjusted.
Making a two-hoe plough
Unlike the single-frame design, this unit features two well-supported frames with cutting elements. With two frames, this unit can be used to process virgin land and large areas of land.
- Form two mouldboards, using a sufficiently thick steel plate, and bend them. To reinforce on the inside, let’s weld an iron strip.
- Join uprights on opposite sides by welding. Drill holes in them. This makes it possible to adjust the height of the unit later on.
- Next, we mount the body. For this we need pipes. Let’s cut them and weld the frame. Let’s attach elements we create to the frame.
- Let’s weld a flange to the construction and use it to connect the homemade machine to the tractor.
Handmade plough for motor-block has its own advantages: the matching of the blade and ploughshare parametric characteristics to the requirements of a particular type of soil. Speaking about the parametric parameters we can highlight efficiency, working depth, ploughing quality and angle.
Taking into account power characteristics of motor-block with plough, it becomes possible to make a plough which doesn’t cause significant load to its engine, but ensures maximum area of catching. Using high-quality materials will increase the service life of the plow.
Besides, we can take into account the possibility of attaching different attachments. This will make the design multifunctional, which in turn makes it possible to carry out a full range of works on the ground.
How to assemble a homemade plow
It is noteworthy that the machinery of the Kaluga plant is versatile. both native Kaluga attachments and attachments from other manufacturers can be installed to power tillers from this manufacturer. The main thing. that the couplings fit.

An alternative can be tools from such manufacturers:
But this is not the limit. Modern craftsmen are able to make their own hands and a plow, and a coupling of the right size, and any other tool for power tiller Oka.
