- Adjust your blades
The next step is adjusting your blades to be on the same level. This will ensure even cutting throughout and not a single portion will be left uncultivated.
Set your front and rare gauge to have the same measurement as to the ground. This applies if you are using rotavator blades of different lengths and shapes.
You can decide to use type J blades on the rare gauge and the C type blades on the front gauge. This is best when you want a deep cut throughout your field.
You can also mix the blades to break the soil particles for proper aeration of your field.
- Adjust your rotavator depth.
You need to adjust the depth at which you want the blade to rotavate around your field. Adjust the blade to cut at least a quarter deep into your ground.
The depth at which our rotavator blades can cut depends on the type of soil. If your soil texture is wet, the blade will do the job without any complications.
We also advise if your land had not been tilled before water before doing the rotation. This will make it easy for the blade to give you maximum depth.
For the rocky soils, you need to remove the rocks before introducing the rotavator. This will reduce the risk of the blade being damaged in the process.
Also, the depth, which the blade will be able to go, depends on the crops you are planning to plant. If its rice we advise the depth of the blade to be not more than a quarter.

Continue adjusting your blades until you achieve an even mixture of soil nutrients. Only stop if your ground is evenly leveled.
