    Did You Know...ROTAVATORS...?

    Did you know... In around 1845, an English lawyer named Hoskyns wrote: "It seems inefficient to utilise the rotating power of the steam engine for pulling a plough; it would be better to cultivate the soil by means of rotating tools."

    In 1849 James Usher of Edinburgh patented a steam powered rotary tiller. It had three wheels (2 driven), and 5 rows of cultivating tools. Unfortunately this item is no longer in stock!
