The tractor tiller comes with three attachments namely; the tilling blades, adjustable plough and the water pump. These mechanisms are the major components of the tractor tiller and work together to ensure that the use of the tractor tiller is maximized and serves the farmer well.

In this article, we place our focus on the irrigation pump, a component of the tractor tiller that works as an irrigation solution for the farmer when there is little or no rain and helps to ensure that the farmer will record growth in his farm output and help to ensure that farming is easy during the year.


SPECIFICATION:

SPEED: 1400 rpm
CAPACITY: 3000 liters/hour
POWER: 8 horsepower
WEIGHT: 5 KG


INSTALLATION

1) The tractor tiller has a round opening at its back that contains the pump shaft. You open the shield to locate the pump shaft.
2) On locating the pump shaft, you place the water pump and tighten it well to ensure there is no air loss.
3) After confirming that the water pump is well tightened, you fix a 2-inch suction pipe on the suction nozzle of the water pump and fix the discharging pipe to the outlet channel of the water pump.
4) Loosen the cover on the discharging pipe on the outlet channel and prime it by placing water on it (this prevents the water seal from getting burnt), Turn on the machine and when the pressure increases, place the discharging pipe immediately on the outlet channel.
5) You can now operate the discharging pipe to supply water to your farm.
