In agriculture during crop cultivation, the foremost step is to plough the field to churn the soil to make it soft. The tool used to complete the process is called a rotary tiller. The blades are used in series as with a single blade tilling can’t be done. The blades are used in gardens and lawns. The blades have high efficiency so their use has become common in agriculture. With the help of rotary tillers, the other tools for tilling can be brought about together at one stage. Rotary tillers have high energy consumption, nevertheless, conjugated with other tools they consume less energy as a total. The working of rotary tiller blades is such that power from blades is directly transmitted to the tillage blades. The only restriction of power depends upon the power of the tractor being used.
Rotary tilling blades are also known as ‘Rotavators’. They are made in different shapes and can be used according to the usage in the agriculture field. The various shapes are ‘L’, ‘C’, ‘J’. in India mostly ‘L’ shaped rotavators are used. The machine’s performance depends upon rotary blade layout, motors’ speed, and forward speed. Soil texture is the result of the operation performed on the soil but that depends on three factors. They are soil conditions, dynamics of soil flow and rotary blade geometry. Rotary blades’ design has a significant value for an efficient operation in the fields. If we use rotavator 300 hrs per year it will have a lifespan of around 8 years. There might be some replacement in between this expected period depending upon the manufacturing quality of the blades. India has varied climatic conditions resulting in different types of soil throughout the country which affects the life of the blades. Choosing the brand is the important thing which can reduce the cost and can definitely give better results in the fields.
