Radio Controlled Fuel Less Garden Tiller
In modern agriculture the fuel for farming is a heavy expense for the farmer. With "Peak Oil" looming this is a dangerous condition. The following design system operates on a fuel less electricity producing power plant to yield working motion to till. The design system also has tool attachment docking to then add components such as seeder, hay bailer, mower, harvester etc...
The system then allows for the "hands free" compost mixing via on board hopper / spreader, to enrich the soil with nutrient to then produce higher yield. (Please pasteurize the compost to avoid food borne illness in the compost). The forward "bucket then with automatic roller rake aids in loading the load bucket.
The tiller being electric hydraulic allowing for tine rotation pressure to be adjusted making the system a safer tiller.
The tiller platform then is a electric motor drive system causing hydraulic pressure to then impale the fixed angle front wheels that operate independently assisted with two electric motors who's rotation direction may be reversed by electric flow direction switching system. The fuel less power plant then causing hydraulic fluid pressure will, with variable intensity, be directed to the tandem rotating front wheel assemblies' ( hydraulic impeller and electric motor). The hydraulic impellers cause the front wheels to rotate assisted by the electric motor. Each front wheel assembly contains a hydraulic impeller and electric motor that may operate independently allowing the design to steer. The dual wheel rear wheel then mounted upon a swivel assembly allowing for tight turning radius. The wheels may operate in opposite directions to cause zero point turning.
The forward "load bucket" system then having two bucket control "arms" upon each side of the mechanism's center mirror line containing the same components upon each side of the mirror line.

The above design system being a fuel less garden tiller may scale to accommodate industrial farming. The system frame then composed of stainless steel with appropriate mounting brackets and mounting bore holes to affix the incorporated mechanism components. the system will contain tine cover shield also hinged upon the compost hopper hinge covering the aft of the mechanism to protect the component from weather the aft tines also curve in (toward the center line of the tiller to reduce chance of injury).
The tiller then operates by remote control but may be made to operate fully autonomous. The autonomous version then must also include safety sensors to detect human or animal motion by proximity (infra red and motion sensors).
Number 8 assist in valve 30's operation acting as a sensor switch for till bar position then changing the valve position shutting off the hydraulic flow once the till bar has been raised. The electromagnetic clutch the with one half of the clutch tandem rotating with the main electric motor, number 23 will then by increased magnetism within the electromagnetic clutch lower the till bar allowing for slippage and compress the rise hydraulic piston to then adjust the downward force speed and "run" pressure via engagement of the second half of the electromagnetic clutch.
The drive belt and pulley system then allows for depth of till setting according to type of earth being tilled. The till bar allows for the free spin of the drive shaft at it's center then motivating the tine rotation hydraulic pump system. The main electric motor one half of the electromagnetic clutch then upon the outer circumference then also as a pulley motivating the drive belt system with the receiving pulley, number 60 motivating the forward wheels rotation.
The tiller then being able to attach multiple farm implements making it a versatile addition replacing expensive to maintain out dated industrial size farm equipment. The system may also accommodate a water dispenser, with the water obtaining from air compression micro liquefaction / or humidity condensation to then, distribute water unto crops in an effective manor.
The pressurized oil then rotating the front wheels of the tiller then returns to the oil reservoir post hydraulic impeller and flow reverser valve , number 35 via flow pipe.
All electrical terminal end wire connect to the multi wire "ribbon wire" bus and on to the logic processing system.
This is so that the electronics circuit board can communicate with the mechanisms required functioning parameters.
The generator system is a draft accelerator fuel less electricity production system. The system then causing the hydraulic draft ( suction ) of a pneumatically pressurized fluid ( silicone oil - non electrically conductive non flammable / hydraulic fluid ) the design does not burn the oil it is used as a work transference fluid.
The potential "work energy" as air pressure then is used but only dissipated upon "start up" and the air pressure is automatically recovered. When the generator is in "run" mode the air pressure is not dissipated effectively "cycling" work energy potential. A percentile of produced electricity in number 95 is reintroduced to the generator drive electric motor , number 120, to then apply the magnetic pressure causing system rotation atop the pressurized hydraulic fluid rate. The remainder of the produced electrical current then applied to the tiller's main electric motor number 23 controlled in the systems logic processor via remote control. The system uses a force "counter tilted" hydraulic impeller to counter act upon the resistance produced when using a ratio gear set to cause rotational speed incline rate.
The effect of pulling a pressurized hydraulic fluid in confinement ( within the pipe) by a high speed pump then causes the impeller proceeding in the flow system to then, with the assistance of drive chain and sprocket system yield stable incline of rotation, where as, the magnetic resistance in the generator produced when producing electricity is then zero effect by the basal pneumatic pressure in the dual component pressure storage tank. This yields stable electricity production with "zero emission" correcting the CO2 ( Carbon Dioxide ) problem. The system's rotational rate advancement ("generator speed"), is then attained via a percentile of produced electrical current reintroduced to the system electric "advancer" motor (number 120) within the generator assembly to then apply magnetic
pressure (the electric motor's rotation), atop the fluid velocity rate. This is the generator's system "throttle". The remainder of the main generator (number 95), electricity production to then be used for the tiller's motive functions....
The multi wire "bus" clip then also containing a battery recharge electricity port to charge the remote control. The remote control via logic processor allows the operator to remotely implement the tiller's system's functions or tool attachments functions. The tool attachment "multi wire / ribbon wire" connects via "multi wire bus clip" to the "wire bus clip" number 96).
The drive shaft with expansion turn buckle may then be detached upon the hydraulic till tine pump end and by a universal joint be connected to water pumping water harvesting system. The design then be the motive rotational power to produce water via a liquefaction air compressor also using N2 ( Nitrogen ) to cool the refrigeration evaporator...
The design comes with an optical row planter system that will bounce light off a reflector to then assist in guiding the fuel less garden tiller "aids" in planting "strait rows".
