Size does matter…


About a year ago I bought a little cultivator for the garden beds.  

It is basically a brush cutter engine connected to a small gearbox and while it did an admirable job, it really wasn’t powerful enough for the task it was required to do.

Today I picked up a much larger cultivator.  It’s a 6.5hp engine which drives the wheels and the rotors.  It is second hand but has had very limited and light use.  I got it home, cleaned it up and gave it an oil change. For $350 it was a bargain.

I’m a big fan of using lanolin based products to protect against corrosion and generally maintaining any metal and machinery.  Lanotec is an Australian made product and I used it for years on the boat.  After all, good maintenance makes your equipment last longer and that’s part of living a sustainable lifestyle. 

I’m looking forward to using the new cultivator in the coming weeks.
