The rotary cultivator or “rotavator” is synonymous with the name Maschio. As one of the first and now largest producers of rotary cultivators worldwide, Maschio lead the way in the technology involved in producing strong reliable machines which will work in any situation. The Maschio range of rotavators cover virtually all agricultural and horticultural applications and offer machines suitable for use on tractors from 15 to 380hp. In 1964 MASCHIO introduced the first CL Rotary Cultivator with side gear transmission.
Each Maschio Rotary Cultivator model has been designed with its HP rating and application in mind, however, whilst drive line protection is included on all machines the nature of work that a rotavator does dictates that additional robustness needs to be incorporated into the design. From the drive line to the chassis and hood of the machine Maschio rotary cultivators are built to withstand the rigorous job they do and the unsuspected obstacles they come into contact with under the soil surface.
Whether shaft and gear or chain driven the drive lines are over specified and high quality components are used throughout to ensure longevity and reliability.
Rotors on all Maschio Rotary Cultivators are digitally balanced before being installed on each machine, whilst it is still important to check blades and maintain machines due to wear and tear, this ensures minimal vibration and improves long term reliability.
