I’m a longtime admirer of the magazine “modelist-Konstruktor”. In the publications of improvised technique find many useful, and most importantly — increased creativity and a desire to design your own technique. I also homebrew with the experience. In recent years, made three tillers for themselves and their relatives. For processing country of six acres, but still planted mostly fruit-berry cultures, these machines are very suitable. But if the plot is bigger, then their effectiveness is eroding. Without a tractor here not to do, even a small mini. Here I am, before you take a plot of land on the former state farm field is abandoned, decided to make and made a good assistant — a mini-tractor.
The design describes the mini-tractor I have a second account. In the first model positioned the engine in the rear of the frame, to dispense with the propeller shaft in the powertrain. But the car suddenly, I behaved badly in running, especially on hills and under load. Tried to put in front counterweights, but they significantly weigh down the design and helped a little.
