How to adjust the plow for the Neva motor-block
How to make a plough for the NEVA power tiller with your own hands?
If you do not have extra money, you can make a plow for a power tiller yourself. It should be noted that without a clear drawing and professional tools you will not succeed. So immediately stock up on everything you need.
- Plowshares. You will need steel 3 to 5 millimeters thick. You can make a removable share, from a circular saw blade. If you do not have this option you can use normal steel without any heat treatment. The cut of the coulter should be anvil-treated.
- The mouldboard. For the mouldboard is suitable pipe with a diameter of about 0.5 meters and a wall thickness of about 3 (three) millimeters. It is necessary to cut it out, process it on an anvil and a sharpening machine.
- The assembly of the plough is carried out in the same way as described above. You can also make a model out of cardboard, repeating the measurements. If you get a solid and solid design, then you can move on to your unit.
Self-made plough by its characteristics does not differ from purchased one. If you’re a handyman, your plough might actually be superior to a competitor’s.
Setting and adjustment
Once you have finished assembling the plough, mount it to your power tool. But before this, some preparatory work has to be done:
- Moving the power tiller to the place where you plan to use it;
- disassembly of the wheel drive. it must be replaced with special grousers (if they are not put, then for planting the same potatoes the plough will not work. the equipment will be slipping and can “burrow” into the ground).
After this step you can mount the plough.
- A plow is attached to the hitch of agricultural machinery, using nuts. Thanks to this it will be possible to adjust its performance.
- Two pins are prepared for the plough. They are used to attach couplers and the plow itself to the clevis.
After the preparations are complete, the fitted plough is adjusted. This step will determine how serviceable both the plow and the single-axle tractor will be. For proper installation of the structure, you need to pay attention to:
Setting up in stages.
- On the edge sections the width is set. To this end, the edge must never be moved lower or higher than the hook.
- Ploughs should be positioned as stably as possible on special supports, so you can set the required depth for ploughing. Do not forget that this may vary depending on the season.
- It is necessary to carefully adjust the very attachment of the plow to the machinery.
- Bolted in such a way that the rear half of the plough is flush with the ground.
- The machine can now be removed from its resting place.
After that, the technique can be considered set up and adjusted if the equipment handlebar is at the same level as the belt of the worker.
What is the best plow for a Neva motoblock. with their own hands, drawings with dimensions, adjustment, goosefoot, how to adjust, reversible, rotary
Many people ask how to install plows for power tiller Neva. Almost every dacha owner has a power tiller. Trying it in action, you do not want to go back to digging the garden with a shovel. Now it is possible to buy tillers with both domestic and foreign assembly, different price range, with different weights and specifications.
How to choose a plow and cutters for the motor-block Neva
In addition to a good cultivator, the farmer will need to buy various additional attachments, which are also represented by a wide range, so everyone will be able to pick up the necessary mechanism, from plow and cutters and ending with a trailer and snowplow.
Let’s look at the varieties of plows and tillers on such a popular among consumers motor-block as the Neva.
Neva MB-1 single-axle tractor is equipped with American Briggs Stratton RS950 engine with 6.5 hp power.с., or Japanese Subaru EXR16 with 6 liters.с. Suitable for processing sandy, sandy loam and loamy soil, can be used for cargo transportation and territory cleaning. Enables the use of a plow, tiller, and other attachments. On this motocultivator it is desirable to buy a support wheel, the presence of which will facilitate the work on loosening the soil, because it will not allow the unit to “burrow” into the ground. For its weight of 70 kg, it is quite maneuverable and qualitatively performs its tasks.
The Neva MB-2 has a mass of 98 kg, and as an option, it is equipped with an electric starter and a headlight. Included cutters consist of 8 mechanisms.
MB-23 is the most powerful machine in this group of power tillers. Its weight of 105 kg allows to perform the heaviest works with a plough.
MB-23SD. a modification of the previous model, but with a weight of 115 kg and capacity depending on the installed engine. Includes tillers and plow.
The Neva with a gearbox Multi AGRO, which has a greater number of gears, the engine has less power, but it copes with the traction functions perfectly, it has a smaller turning radius, the body of the walking tractor has internal ribs.
MB-1 equipped with either a Japanese Honda engine in 5.8 liters.с., or the American Briggs Stratton with 6 and 6.5 liters.с. It has a rear and 3 front gears.
The MB-2 has a Briggs Stratton or Honda engine of 6.5 and 5.8 liters.с.
You can pick up a plow, tillers and other attachments to each of the above mentioned Neva power tiller.
Cutters for the Neva power tillers
Cutters for the Neva power tiller. Let’s see how to assemble a power tiller. The motor-block “Neva” has 8 milling cutters, the diameter of which is 36 cm, which allows them to loosen the soil to a width of 1.2 m and a depth of 20 cm.
Cutters for the tiller Neva come in the following types:
HDX Snow Plow: Adjustable Attack Angle (AAA)
- With sabre-shaped legs designed for virgin soil (active cutter). The most popular and in-demand cutter on the Neva single-axle tractor, aimed at tillage of virgin or sticky soils.
- Goose-foot cutter for the Neva power tiller, which will allow you to process harder soil, since it has a solid design.
To increase the cultivated soil in one pass with a power tiller, and consequently reduce the time for cultivation of the entire area, you can buy additional tillers.
Plow cutter for the NEVA MB power tiller. This type of attachment is designed to control weeds while loosening the soil. The ploughshare has several holes for its adjustment to work at a certain depth.
Plow for power tiller Neva
Next let’s take a closer look at what plows can be installed on the Neva single axle tractor.
The plough has a geometrically shaped steel share and a so-called heel for loosening fallow land. After its use, it will be necessary to additionally pass over the soil with a cultivator.
There are 3 main groups of this attachment for the Neva power tiller on the market today:
- Single-hoe. Equipped with a single share for ploughing on light soils. In the process of work with such equipment the soil is thrown to one side, so to move to the next row it is necessary to go to the beginning of the furrow.
- Reverse plough for power tillers. The blade is made in the form of a feather, so this model is suitable for heavier soils. One popular model is the rotary plow Zykov, which has a left- and right-sided body, equipped with a ploughshare and a mouldboard that allows you to turn and crush the soil.
- A rotary plow that has several working and curved plowshares put on one axis. In the process of ploughing, he turns and throws the soil.
In order to determine which plow is best, you should assess the quality of soil on the site.
Equipment installation and how to adjust the plow on the power tiller.
To properly hitch the plow to your Neva single axle tractor, you will need to refer to the instructions for use of your power tiller.
Let’s look at how the plow is adjusted. It should be connected to the hitch and then attached to a single-axle tractor. To start using the cultivator with the plow attached to it, you need to change the wheels to the tines. The hitch has a special footrest, so you do not need to use additional tools. It is necessary to install the grundozatsev so that in the end, its narrow sections were located in the direction of movement of the cultivator.
The plow after attaching it to the tiller must not move or tilt in any way. It may be necessary to change the depth of the plow, for adjusting which there are several holes on the stand.
Adjust the plough before beginning to use it. To do this, it is necessary to align the longitudinal axes of the cultivator with the plow, as well as to position it strictly vertically. This position can only be adjusted after the hitch has been made. Adjust plough position. To do this, place its heel parallel to the ground and fix this position using a bolt. It is important to remember that when carrying out such an action, the power tiller should be positioned in the center from the regulating screw.
To properly evaluate ploughing, first work should be done at a slow speed because the plough adjustment may be necessary.
You can build an alternative to the plow on a single-axle tractor Neva with your own hands. The feedback of those farmers who made it on their own, the most positive. This requires a ploughshare made of steel, which thickness is 3-5 mm, and a mouldboard, as which you can use a pipe with a diameter of about 50 cm and wall thickness of at least 3 mm. The subsequent assembly of the plow is done in the same way as described above.
Setting up the Neva power tiller for plowing
The hitch is what attaches the plow to the towbar of the motoblock. They are of two types: universal and stationary. The universal one is more preferable for the work, because it allows you to make some more precise adjustments.
Tip: To make mounting the plow easier, mount the single axle tractor on supports that can be bricks, planks or rocks.
The attachment of the plow is quite simple. the hitch for the motoblock takes its place on the towbar and is fixed with a single pin.
Many people think that by securely bolting a plow to a single axle tractor, the work will go easier and faster. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Owing to the fact that during plowing the forces acting on the plough, directed perpendicular to the plane of the moldboard, there is a resistance that tends to pull the whole unit to the side. With a rigid attachment, the worker has to exert effort, literally pushing the single-axle tractor into the ground. Therefore, it is necessary to leave a backlash of about 5 degrees in the horizontal plane.
Installing and adjusting the plow
Before you start plowing the ground, you should attach the plow to the power tiller. To do this, they must be connected using a special hitch (usually not included in the scope of delivery and sold separately).
Here’s a detailed video instruction on how to prepare a single-axle tractor for plowing:
The plow must be connected to the crawler only on a level surface. This ensures the correct coupling. Otherwise, the overall design will be assembled at a slant, and the plow will not function properly.
Then the plow should be adjusted for plowing. In its correct position, the field board should be parallel to the furrow line.
Here’s a detailed video instruction on the major problems and nuances that can occur when adjusting the plow:
The plow depth can be set with special bolts by moving them vertically and longitudinally. The depth can be adjusted after ploughing. But please pay attention and always follow the safety instructions.
The plow can be operated both when the power tiller is moving forward and when it is moving backward. Due to the fact that it can rotate around its axis.
The most common disadvantage of the plough is that it swings to the side. See below for how to address this issue:
For better traction, a single-axle tractor should be equipped with metal trailing wheels. They serve as additional stabilizers when the plow works. Folk craftsmen make their own versions of such wheels. They just stretch chains on standard tires and the resulting construction is not inferior to special metal wheels in its characteristics.
- work with the plow under the influence of alcohol or any other substances that reduce reaction speed or attention;
- To work with a power tiller when the plow malfunctions;
- work with a power tiller with loose mounts;
- To make repairs or any manipulation while the plow was in motion.
These rules are simple and more than clear to every reasonable person.

“Plowing the land has always been a problem in our family. The tractor drivers don’t have time, or they break down, or some other nonsense happens to them. And as a result, it’s very difficult to plow the ground before planting. So not only do you have to go around humiliating yourself in front of them, but you also pay them money and buy fuel. I just can’t stand it! So I decided to buy myself a single-axle tractor Neva and then the plow to him. Ended up being a million percent satisfied. I am always sure that my land will be prepared for sowing and cultivated after the harvest, so I do not depend on anyone.”
“I bought a VRMZ plow, and I’m completely satisfied. Easy to install, no extra parts, copes with its work by 5 I use it for 3 years. After work, I washed it, lubricated the connections with Lithol, and put it away until the next season of necessity.”

Plow for power tiller Neva
Types of ploughs for Neva power tillers. To save the cutters and keep them in working condition for a long time you will need to buy a plow.
Below we will consider in more detail, what plows can be installed on the single-axle tractor Neva.
The plough has a geometrically shaped steel share and a so-called heel for loosening fallow land. After using it, it will be necessary to additionally pass over the soil with a cultivator.
There are 3 main groups of this attachment for the Neva motoblock on the plow market today:
- Single tine. Fitted with one share and designed for light soil. In the process of working with such equipment, the soil is thrown to one side, so to move to the next row, you will need to go to the beginning of the furrow.
- Reverse plow for power tiller. The blade is made in the form of a feather, so this model is suitable for soils heavier. One popular model is the Zykov swivel plow, which has a left- and right-sided body, equipped with a ploughshare and a mouldboard that allows you to turn and crush the soil.
- Rotary, which has several working plowshares placed on one axis, which have a curved shape. In the process of plowing, it rotates and throws the soil.
In order to determine which plow is best, you should assess the quality of soil on the plot.
Installation of equipment and how to adjust the plow on the power tiller.
To properly hitch a plow to a single-axle tractor Neva will need to refer to the instructions for use of the power tiller.
Let’s look at how the plow is set up. It must be coupled to the hitch and then attached to the single-axle tractor. To start using a cultivator with a plow attached to it, it is necessary to change the wheels to the soil traps. The hitch has a special footplate, so no additional tools are needed. It is worth installing the plow so that in the end, its narrow sections were located in the direction of travel of the cultivator.
After attaching it to the power tiller, the plow must never move or tilt. It may be necessary to change the depth of the plow, for which there are several adjustment holes on the stand.
Adjust the plough before using it. To do this, align the longitudinal axes of the cultivator with the plough, and position the plough strictly vertically. This position of the attachment can be adjusted after the hitch has been installed. Adjust plough position. To do this, place its heel parallel to the ground and fix this position using a bolt. It is important to remember that when you do this, the steering wheel must be in the center of the adjustment screw.
To assess the quality of ploughing, the first steps should be carried out at a low speed, because the plough may need to be adjusted.
An alternative to the plough on a Neva single axle tractor can be built with your own hands. The feedback from farmers who made it on their own, the most positive. This requires a steel ploughshare 3-5mm thick and the mouldboard, which can be made from a pipe about 50cm diameter and at least 3mm thick. The subsequent assembly of the plough is carried out in the same way as described above.
First furrow and ploughing angle
Once the previous steps have been done, it’s time for the last adjustment, so that the subsequent furrowing will go easily. To do this, the single-axle tractor is placed on the edge of the plot, drive the plow into the ground and pass the first furrow. At this stage it is important to keep the line straight, so that subsequent passes are also straight. A staked line or other point of reference can be of great help here.
At this stage it is best to check how deep into the ground the plough goes. place a ruler or tape measure in the furrow. Adjust the plowing depth if necessary.
Then one wheel of the single axle tractor is placed in the furrow and the plow is oriented so that it is perpendicular to the ground, to do this accurately, use an angle piece. If you’re not comfortable in the ground, set your single-axle tractor on a level surface, with one wheel underneath the other to match the depth of the furrow. After that, plough adjustment is considered complete and you can proceed to the second, third furrow.
Varieties and features of ploughs on the Neva single axle tractor
It was hard to imagine farming in ancient times without a plow. Absolutely nothing has changed now. And it is still a much sought after product. But unlike in ancient times, the principle of its use has changed. Nowadays ploughs for power tillers are used for cultivating relatively small areas. The purpose of their work is to turn over the top layer of fertile land for the winter, it is done so that it absorbs moisture as much as possible. This considerably increases the quantity of the harvest.
To see how easy it is to plow with this plow model, go to
Let’s take a look at what options for plowing plows are offered by the official manufacturer of Neva motoblocks.
Hinged plow PN
Hinged plough ПН The manufacturer of this model is Energia Joint Stock Company. They confirm the quality of the product conforming to all Euro-Asian Union regulations.
This is a relatively small model, which allows you to work on small plots in gardens, vegetable gardens, greenhouses, etc. д.
Here’s an overview, hitch principle and operation of this model:
The plow is a structure of a base and attached to it a body and a post with holes.
It has a single mouldboard. That is, when using it, the soil will be thrown to one side.
The plowing depth can be adjusted in manual mode. The maximum depth of plowing is up to 22 cm. And the maximum working width.18 cm. This is more than enough for most tillage applications.
Single-hoe plow H
This plough is produced by CJSC “VRMZ”. Outwardly, they are very similar, but differ in quality. VRMZ has long ago established itself as one of the best manufacturers of various steel structures. Their distinctive feature is the high quality of all manufactured products.
To see how easy it is to plow land with the Neva power tiller see
On the basis of sales experience, the H single-hoe plow made by “VRMZ” is one of the most popular ones. That’s why the company developed 9 different modifications of this plough. They differ in dimensions, weight, working width and ploughing depth.
That is, every owner of Neva motoblock can pick up exactly the plough that is best suited for his particular case.
Dimensions range from wide to narrow, from low to high.
- If you look at the working width, it can be 15 or 22 cm.
- Depending on requirements, the depth of the plough can be either 20 or 14 cm.
That is, they are versatile and can be used on any site and for any requirement.
When choosing a plough, you need to know the condition of the soil you’re going to work. This model in particular is suitable for softer and already prepared fertile land.
Their use on virgin or stony soils is inadmissible.
How to set up?
How to set the wheels
Setting up your tillage tiller before the gardening season starts. Before you start ploughing, change the rubber wheels for the trailing tires. This is to ensure that the machine does not slip during ploughing. The choice of wheels is important because otherwise the compacted ground won’t plow after winter.

First, their diameter should be at least 55 cm, and secondly, the width of the wheel should be chosen within 20 cm, otherwise, if the wheels are too narrow, the single-axle tractor will lose stability, and it will be rocked in different directions. If the diameter is too small, the gearbox will get caught in the ground and can be destroyed, and it is known to be the “heart” of a power tiller.
A monolithic rim is suitable for the wheels, so that the ground does not get clogged in the tines. Work with wheels is performed by placing the single-axle tractor on special stands. The height of elevation depends directly on the depth of future ploughing: for working in normal soil. 20 cm, with frozen soil. 25 cm.
Thanks to couplings (fasteners) the plough is mounted to the tiller. This work is best done with a helper, because it requires some effort and skill. First, the coupling is mounted on a single-axle tractor, then connect it to the plow mount with steel pins. The connection should not be set tightly, a slight horizontal movement is necessary, otherwise the single-axle tractor will “skid” sideways when working the ground because of unevenness of the soil.
After the basic mounting, the plough should be adjusted. Adjustment is a tricky part. ploughing depends on it. Using the fasteners, the plough is tilted so that its “heel” is directed horizontally to the ground. After adjustment the single axle tractor is placed on the ground and the steering wheel is checked. it must be in the ploughman’s belt area.
Now let’s see if the implement is ready for the field. Make a few test furrows to measure the depth, check the quality of the tilling. Pay attention to the strip between the furrows. it must not be too wide (no more than 10 cm) or crossed by the plough.
Ploughing is one of the most important operations in agriculture. When preparing the plot for planting in spring or after harvesting, the ground should be turned over or ploughed. This process helps to oxygenate the soil, remove weeds, and keep snow on the field longer. You can use a shovel to dig up the garden. But it is quite a labor-intensive job, especially if large areas of land are to be cultivated. Nowadays, thanks to the development of technology, this task can be simplified by using a power tiller.
A single-axle tractor is a versatile device. With its help the basic agricultural works are carried out: plowing the land, planting root crops, weeding, weeding potatoes, harvesting, mowing the grass.
