How to assemble a Brait 80 single axle tractor
Testimonial: Brait BR-80 single axle tractor Pretty decent single axle tractor for not much money
That’s why last year we decided to buy a single-axle tractor and cultivate the land with it. The choice fell on the power tillers Brait, judging by the reviews on the Internet, it’s quite a decent power tillers for a low price. In the store there were two power tillers of this company, one with narrow wheels for 24000, the other with wide wheels for more cross-country ability with a cart for two thousand more expensive. Since the tiller’s cross-country ability was not important for us, we bought a single-axle tractor with narrow wheels. By the way, the seller was very surprised that we do not take the cart and even asked repeatedly if we do not take it exactly. Apparently most of the buyers thought that the cart was an essential attribute for a power tiller (oh, those power tillers). But we bought the necessary attributes for working with the ground, namely, a disc coupler, hitch, trailing blades, a plow and more engine oil for power tillers.
And cutters were included with the tractor. At first we looked at the larger diameter cutters, but we decided not to buy them, and as it turned out later we were right.The single-axle tractor was packed in a cardboard box with a metal frame and weighing about 70 kg.
The box was not so big and fit in the backseat of the car without much trouble, so we did not have to pay for shipping.
In the photo, the wheels, handlebar and other parts are out of the box, and the body of the trimmer is bolted to the frame to prevent damage in transit.
Well, finally unscrewed and got a single-axle tractor.
We had little idea how to assemble a single axle tractor, so we went to read the manual. But there is not a word about assembly in the instruction manual, moreover it is even from a power tiller with the same name and number.
The pictures are of disgusting quality, I can not understand anything.
Okay, at least the technical specifications seem to converge.
In general, with the help of the Internet and kind people assembled, poured engine oil in the engine, gear oil in the gearbox, gasoline in the tank and started. By the way, a single-axle tractor started without any problems, literally from half-pipe.
Then we also assembled the cutters with some help from the Internet.The first job for the power tiller was to close the moisture, that is, to destroy the crust on the ground after the winter. I have harrowed a garden of about four acres with milling cutters to a depth of 5 centimeters, literally, in 10-15 minutes. Then after two weeks did the first cultivation to a depth of 10-15 cm.
Steering wheel could be bent aside to avoid trampling freshly plowed ground.
I tried to go into the garden with a plow, but the attempt was not particularly successful. the soil was still wet, covered the plow and the single-axle tractor began to slip and bury heavily. Decided to plow properly in the fall.The radius of the tiller is about 15 cm, so there was a fear that the single–axle tractor would not plow to a greater depth, the axis would press against the ground and that’s it. But in fact it turned out that it can easily bury almost the engine, so the second cultivation before planting potatoes, I spent at a depth of 20-25 inches, completely destroying the plow foot from past years.
As you can see in the photo, the cutters are almost completely buried in the soil. To ease the work of the power tiller, I reduced the width of the cutters to 80 centimeters. By the same token, my footprint was already a ready-made groove for laying potatoes.
For a newcomer the rows were a bit crooked, but by the end of the garden I got used to them and went more straight.They wanted to fill in the potatoes on top with a disc hoe. formed ridges, but apparently poorly adjusted it and the single-axle tractor began to wiggle, shifting and tearing the rows. And even the reduced speed of the tractor turned out to be pretty high and I just did not have time to keep the single-axle tractor straight on the row. In addition, the resulting ridges seemed to me a little high, so it was decided to rake the potatoes by hand with hoes, rakes and feet.A month went by, the potatoes sprouted and grew big enough to be dug. We paid more attention to the adjustment of the planter and centered it well, so it wouldn’t pull the single-axle tractor to the side. At first, instead of the wheels we put grousers and weights, but the grousers ruined the ready row, and the single-axle tractor ran too fast on them, in spite of the fact, that their diameter was less than the wheels. Then they put the rubber wheels on again, and although the single-axle tractor was slipping on them, but because of this the speed was small and I had time to follow him and correct him.
True, I had to go over the same row twice, but even so I dug the whole garden in an hour, and before I had to use a hoe to dig for 2-3 days.
The rows turned out to be regular trapezoidal.
There were fears that because of the repeated tillage with cutters the soil will be compacted and there will be a lot of weeds from the cut roots, but these fears have not been borne out, despite the very rainy summer. As it turned out, the cutters were not so much cutting as pulling the rhizomes of weeds, and their rotation speed was not high enough to turn the soil into dust.Despite the wider than usual row spacing (80 cm), the potatoes safely closed the rows, and there were almost no weeds.
I also wanted to dig potatoes either by plow, or to buy a simple potato digger, similar to a plow with an additional blade of twigs, but August was awfully wet, so no mechanization was out of the question. Despite a lot of rain, although the soil was very wet, but not compacted and digging potatoes was not very difficult. For example, in 2017 the same rainy year after the tractor plowed the soil was so compacted that we hardly dug the potatoes, breaking a lot of forks.The potatoes immediately felt the difference in tillage and pleased us with a good harvest, even despite a very rainy and cold summer.While digging the potatoes, the damp soil was so tilled that the plow would not get into it. Even with cutters I had great difficulty plowing the vegetable garden for the winter.
Of course the single axle tractor worked not only in the potato field. And for other crops, it mowed the land no worse than a shovel. Also I sowed grass on the swaths (about half a hectare), having cut them with cutters lengthwise and crosswise. And all this work took about 10 liters of gasoline. This is what a four-stroke motor means. It took a lot more gas to mow with a two-stroke gasoline trimmer.The single–axle tractor proved to be a good workhorse, it started without any problems, it had more than enough power. Let’s see how it goes from here.The disadvantages are the uncomfortable handles, whose rubber grip can dig into your hands, even through thick gloves. Also, the gasket on the gas tank lid leaked gasoline, it had to replace it with a thicker one. The small weight of the walking tractor is both advantage and disadvantage. It does not always have enough weight even with a weighting material and trailing arms. And of course it’s necessary to watch all bolts and tighten them in time.While I recommend this single axle tractor, but we’ll see how it performs in the years to come.

Basic package includes no accessories. But it can be installed additionally, depending only on your needs.
- various plows;
- devices for planting and harvesting potatoes;
- haymaking rigs;
- Grips for soil;
- trailers (lightweight cargo carts);
- grass mowers;
- water pumps;
- snow blades.
Groomers must be purchased by all means. Even the best wheels without their support will slip. The choice is extremely simple. you only need to tell the seller what model of power tillers you need hitches. When it comes to cutters, the saber-shaped variety is most often found in the delivery set of motorized equipment. Then you can disassemble this cutter and sharpen or replace the problematic part.
But saber-shaped designs are only suitable for working on soft soil. If the ground is hard, you need “goosefoots”. Most often they are bought when potatoes will be planted on the plot.
Specially designed for tillage. It is not difficult to recognize such a tool: the main unit is supplemented by rounded knives.
Potato harvesters can be used for harvesting other root crops as well. Fan rotary is usually cheap, but its efficiency is low. Important: for processing small plots, the harvest on which you can harvest with your own hands, such a device is optimal. Vibrating mechanisms have a serious advantage. far fewer tubers are missed. Such a potato digger lifts the entire layer and sifts it gently.
The role of power tillers is also great for clearing plots of snow and dirt. If the unit is equipped with a powerful motor, snow drifts can be removed with a shovel blade. The snow plow has an even greater capacity. When driving, the auger captures the snow, directing it into the socket. If there isn’t much snow, you can use a sweeping brush to remove leaves, trash and various dirt.
Regardless of the size of the farm, a cart (trailer) is useful, because everyone has to move different loads.
To clear the area from the grass, it is necessary to use a mower. The more expensive (knife-type) one is much better. It’s safer and can be used on any terrain.
