Designed for home users with small gardens or allotments which require periodic soil preparation, Bertolini’s 400 rotary cultivator is the perfect machine. The two-wheeled tractor unit is easy to manoeuvre and operate, is complete with a 50cm tiller attachment for efficient soil cultivation, but can also be used with a wide range of accessories (available separately) for truly magnificent versatility.

With power coming from a quiet Emak K 700 H OHV four-stroke petrol engine, the 400 packs more than enough punch to deal with prolonged periods of use and heavily compacted soil. The large wheels with high grip tyres also help with difficult ground, and the wheel track can even be adjusted for added stability on hilly terrain.

The rotor turns in the opposite direction to the wheels, meaning there’s more control and less vibration than you might find with other machines. Adjust the handlebars vertically to suit a range of operators, and control the power using a simple on off control on the handlebars. With 6 different working depths, the Bertolini 400 rotary cultivator is suitable for a range of applications.

About Bertolini
Bertolini was founded in 1953, at first producing pumps for the agricultural industry, and a year later expanded their range to include a mower, the Bertolini BFR 54. With their reputation for quality firmly established Bertolini went on to produce a range of cultivators and tillers that became the standard tool for the market gardeners and vineyard owners of the Mediterranean hillsides, favoured due to their outstanding durability in the hot and dusty conditions. Bertolini wheel tractor units gained a reputation as flexible and easy to use on rough terrain.

These cultivators became indispensable tools. It wasn't long before customers were asking for bespoke machinery to suit their particular horticultural needs, a demand that Bertolini were happy to answer until it became economically impossible to continue as manufacturing costs began to soar. More recently, the Emak Group acquired the Bertolini brand and since November 2008 awareness of the large range of tillers, cultivators, scythe cutter bar mowers, flail mowers and transporters has increased dramatically with the demand for their two-wheeled tractor units growing at-a-pace. The range of products available in the U.K. is still slightly limited, but with a rapid increase of interest in their excellent equipment, the Bertolini range of horticultural machinery is here to stay.
