Like a lot of agricultural machinery, horse drawn implements have been designed by engineers and are often not adapted to the real needs of farmers. However, the old horse drawn tools we bring out of the brambles and restore often remain the best tools available to us.

One of the main inconveniences of these tools is their lack of ergonomic fit. When they’re not rotted or broken, the handles of old walk behind ploughs and cultivators are often too low, hardly ever adjustable in dimension (in width, height and length) or direction (except for a couple of vineyard ploughs), and are not collapsible (in order to store or transport more easily).
