With the manually pulled trail cultivator (1), the soil is lifted up to a fairly great depth (approx. 7-15 cm) and opened up and the weeds growing on it are loosened. It is also used to break clods.
The working part, usually adjustable in width, consists of an odd number of curved iron teeth with a triangular point. It is screwed to an iron handle of approx. 120 cm, the end of which (approx. 25 cm) is bent and has a crossbar (approx. 35 cm).
