From the family of microstructures developed by students of Kharkiv Institute of mechanization and electrification of agriculture, the easiest and most accessible for self-production – how “the Kid” (HIMESH-2): it is the most used units and components of machinery produced by industry. It’s a small two-wheeled machine driven reaching for her operator. A large set of interchangeable towed and mounted implements makes a compact and versatile, allows to use it for plowing, harrowing, cultivating, hilling and other operations soil cultivation, plant care, and in the coupling with a single axle truck – like vehicle for transportation of various household goods. In the latter case, the operator becomes the driver and is placed on suspension seat on the front of the truck. Thanks to these properties, the tillers can be applied not only in a personal farming, but also can be used for mechanization of labor-consuming processes in crop production, especially in vegetable production and experimental plots of breeding stations, as well as livestock and greenhouses.
The main components of the design of “Baby” are the engine of the VP-150M, transmission system, PTO, chassis, control system and coupling device are arranged on a rectangular frame of channel.
Of the motors manufactured by the industry for equipment located in private use, most suitable for walking tractor was the engine of VP-150M scooter “Electron” with a capacity of 7.5 HP (5.5 kW). He single-cylinder, two-stroke, carburetor; features a compact integrated gearbox and a clutch; it has electronic ignition. Not less important is the fact that the motor is equipped with a centrifugal fan, while when using other engines Amateur designers have a hand to solve the issues of forced cooling.
