About the Practice
Problem Statement:

A tilting cart offers relief to animals and workers in the field


In the tradi­tional bullock cart, with two wheels, part of the load is borne by the draft animals on their shoulders and neck and the harnessing system at present makes it difficult to negotiate sharp bends or turns in the road. This causes the gals on the neck of the bullocks, which affects not only the efficiency of the animals but also their stamina. This cart is thus designed to overcome the shortcomings of the traditional carts by having an additional wheel to balance the load. In addition the cart has a tilting mechanism which is based on the rope and pulley system which can be controlled by a lever located alongside the cart driver. Amrutbhai Agrawat is a creative artisan of Junagadh districts. He invented many farm equipments and innovations related to reduce the drudgery of Animals and Women like pulley with stopper. He is also one of the most senior and active member of Honey Bee Network.
