Rotavators

Rotavators come in various shapes and sizes. My preferred type of rotavators are the wheeled driven type of machine, unfortunately, these are the most expensive machines, however, they are great for the keen gardener and professional landscaper.

They offer total control while you are rotavating and the flexibility of a gearbox to give you various forward operating speeds and a reverse gear, which makes operation much easier.

The rotor driven type of rotavators can also be extremely useful for the keen gardener, these machines normally start at around 3.5 hp of engine power and go up to approximately 11 hp.

These machines are great for getting a great seedbed on your vegetable plot in the spring.

There are also smaller machines that can be used for breaking up the soil around flower beds and also for hoeing down rows of vegetables. This can be a great time-saving machine and reduces the human effort of hoeing.

Another good place to look for this type of machine can be eBay as sometimes you can find a decent second-hand machine.
