All models of improved shovels have a number of advantages and advanced functions. They are especially preferred by the elderly.
Any tool must be skillfully used so that it serves as long as possible. The hand cultivator is based on the principle of a lever. By depressing the foot pedal, a person promotes the sinking of the working teeth into the soil. By lowering the lever with his hands down, the summer resident makes the earth layer rise. In this case, the soil layer is broken by opposing teeth. Without overturning the entire layer, the device loosens the soil without depleting its fertile layer.
A feature of the tool is that it can only work on wet soils. It will not loosen dry soil. The best time to use unusual equipment is considered to be the beginning of spring, mid-autumn. But too moistened soil is difficult to handle a miracle with a shovel. During the preparation of the soil for planting plants, large areas are dug up with a tool. In this case, it is necessary, having digged, pull it back to you. It is a pleasure to work on loose soil with a shovel, but on dry stony, clayey lands, there will be no sense from the device.
You should use a miracle shovel carefully, then it will serve for a long time.
Choose a tool depending on the type of soil with different ripper widths. They dig up soft earth with a shovel with a working width of 55 centimeters, and hard earth at 35. But a wide shovel will require a lot of effort from the summer resident.
Caring for your tool is the same as for gardening tools. It is kept under a canopy, protecting it from rain.For the winter, clean the teeth from the soil, wipe all parts of the structure with a dry cloth. You can lubricate the metal parts of the shovel with machine oil, saving it from rust.
It is not worth the difficulty for a craftsman to build a miracle shovel with his own hands. The sequence of making the tool is as follows:
- They start with the working part of the inventory, which looks like a pitchfork. Teeth of fifteen centimeters are cut from a metal rod ten millimeters thick. They are welded to the corner, slightly bending forward.
- The square frame is bent out of the metal corner slightly wider than the forks, by welding teeth to it, which are located between the working parts of the forks.
- In one plane with the forks, a U-shaped arc is welded.
- Connect the forks to the large frame with hinges.
- For the handle, take a wooden pole about one and a half meters long.
A simpler design of a miracle shovel is made from a bicycle handlebar tube fixed at the top and a bucket made of a sheet of metal. The blade of the shovel is welded to the base of the pipe, stepping back five centimeters from the bottom. To prevent the steering wheel from pressing on the chest, rubber tips are put on its handles. The simple shape of the shovel will allow you to drive the blade deep into the ground, easily turning the earth layer.
For innovators who facilitate agricultural work in their summer cottage, there is nothing difficult to come up with a design of a universal nature, to make it from scrap materials.
