This senior project discusses the design, construction, and testing of a flame cultivator attachment. The project used existing torches, a tractor, and a cultivation sled to increase the usability of the farmer’s torches. This project includes two torch clamps, two propane tank brackets, and a removable valve panel. Testing showed that the new system increases the safety and efficiency of the torches.
