Currently, many people are buying summer cottages. Today, there are many different devices and devices for quickly carrying out all the necessary work on the land. One of them is a walk-behind tractor. Today we’ll talk about this technique of the brand Caiman Vario.
Features and purpose
The Caiman Vario petrol walk-behind tractor has standard convenient handles, the direction of which can be changed in three different versions. And also this device has an excellent folding design, making it easy to fold and transport. The selector switch of this walk-behind tractor is made so that the reverse speed is located between the front gears. This allows you to efficiently and quickly process almost all types of soil on the land.
The wheelbase of the Caiman Vario walk-behind tractor can be increased (up to 900 mm). In addition, it has comfortable slopes with large protectors. They allow you to achieve maximum results when re-cultivating the land. As well as motoblocks of this brand have cutters. They help to significantly improve the grip on the device. Managing this technique is quite easy.
Due to the presence of a special reduced gear, this device can easily process all types of soil, including rocky surfaces. Often, with the help of the Caiman Vario walk-behind tractor, gardeners mow grass in their summer cottages, prepare the soil for planting seedlings, and transport goods with a relatively small mass. And also this technique can be used in the case of snow removal in the winter.
Caiman Vario gas-powered motoblocks have powerful and reliable Japanese engines (most often Subaru or Honda). However, they differ in relatively small size and weight. This greatly affects the level of controllability and maneuverability of the device. These engines are single-cam four-stroke varieties. They provide the function of forced air cooling, which allows you to protect the mechanism from overheating during operation. The motor-block engine includes a carburetor, which ensures normal combustion in the mechanism, piston rings, valves.
The power part of the equipment includes a standard gearbox along with a special cable for gear shifting. It has a two-stage type, which allows the unit to move back and forth. The transmission of the device is made of stainless steel. It allows you to smoothly move the equipment along the desired path on the site. An important element is special drive belts. They are designed to transmit movements from the engine to attachments. The size of the belt for the Caiman Vario walk-behind tractor may be different.
The construction of the walk-behind tractor includes a fuel system. The volume of the fuel tank in these walk-behind tractors can be 3-4 liters. This amount is enough for several hours of full-time operation of the equipment. It should be remembered that in winter it is necessary to use certain types of special motor oils for work in the cold season.
In addition, different parts with extensions are available as spare parts for Caiman Vario walk-behind tractors. They are installed together with the wheelbase. These elements are intended to improve the maneuverability of equipment while working with a cart, mower or plow.
This manufacturer today can offer a number of different walk-behind tractors.

The volume of the fuel tank for this sample does not exceed 3.6 liters. The maximum processing depth of virgin lands is 32 centimeters.
Caiman Vario 70S PLOW TWK +
This model is considered the most high-tech apparatus for processing summer cottages. It has a special shape and heavy-duty milling cutters made of hardened steel. This design allows the equipment to easily cut through even the densest soils on the site. This walk-behind tractor can be used for land areas of 30-40 acres. The depth of soil treatment with such a device does not exceed 32 centimeters.
It has a considerable mass (1234 kilograms), so it is quite difficult to transport it. The Caiman Vario 70S PLOW TWK + is manufactured with a Subaru engine (7 hp). The handle of the sample is adjustable and folding, which makes the job much easier.

Most often, with the help of these parts, plowing is carried out, weeds are destroyed and various fertilizers are applied to the soil.
Subtleties of operation
In order to maximize the work of the walk-behind tractor, it is necessary to observe some of the rules for its operation specified in the instructions. So, do not forget to change the oil in the unit in a timely manner. The oil level in the crankcase should be constantly monitored. And also remember that you need to regularly clean the air and fuel filters. Adjustment of the carburetor should also be carried out periodically.
Remember to check threaded connections in a timely manner. Their tightening should be as strong as possible. Pay attention to checking the fuel supply system. Make sure that it is always airtight.
Malfunctions and their elimination
Often motor-blocks of this brand have problems with the gearbox. Over time, you can hear extraneous sounds in it. In some cases, this mechanism immediately after switching on stops working. In the event of such a serious breakdown, the defective part should be replaced immediately. The necessary spare parts for this can be found in almost every store with garden products. In this case, you can use cheaper Chinese analogs of the elements. In addition, do not forget to adhere to the basic rules of operation. Be sure to regularly change the oil in the crankcase, clean parts.
Also, these motoblocks often have problems with the fuel filter. Most often they are associated with simple contamination of the element itself, so do not forget to periodically clean the mechanism. If even this does not help, then you should replace the part with a new one. During the operation of Caiman Vario walk-behind tractors, you can sometimes notice constant heating of the units. This happens most often due to excessive wear of bearings, due to too low oil level in the crankcase. Therefore, in this case, you must either add a little oil or completely replace the bearings.
Sometimes gardeners are faced with the fact that the fuel in the walk-behind tractor loses its fluidity. This is due to too low temperatures. In this case, you can just warm up a little gasoline, or pour fresh new fuel.
