Today i Aquired what i believe is a jalo push hoe. I'll try and post a pic tomorrow, as i cant upload it from my smart phone!

Anyone got any ID tips? Its got single hooped handles, and a spoked wheel with ridges on it.

Yes - that's an early JALO with the cast allow wheel. It's fairly easy to get hoes, ploughs and ridgers but if you find rakes or disks grab 'em....



Oh Aahh, I forgot the Jiffy seeder at the bottom....

Hi, I found this site whilst doing a search for Jalo Jiffy, as we have just acquired one and know nothing about it
It's green, has an aluminium body, 2 wheels which are also aluminium
We also have a rotavator sort of thing that looks to be related but says something like 'Greensleeves' on the sticker
Any info would be greatly appreciated, I can post pics later

Hi rosie75 welcome to the forum

I put a posting on here last year titled "Jalo Jiffy from the Dorset Steam Fair", I also have a Greensleeves lawn edger, I assume thats the same company as your rotavator

If you could post some photos on here I'm sure we'll do our best to assist !!

My husband found these in a shed he was clearing out, the shed had been untouched for 30 years.

The cultivator is a new one on me, the Jiffy is the same as the one I got at Dorset last year, these could either bolt to the rear of a normal JALO hoe or be a stand alone unit with its own handle like yours...

Good finds...

No idea what the cultivator is worth, I paid a tenner for the Jalo Jiffy I bought, all it needed was a cleanup and a coat of paint !!

OK, thank you.
Think my best bet is to find a collector someone here in South Wales

I have a "Jalo".
I have got the plough,cultivator,rake & skimmer attachments.
I think there maybe a ridger somewhere. Sadly not the pulverisers to complete the set.
Looking at the Jalo advert, my rake attachments are not as wide, they are about 5 prongs from memory.
It is possible that they belong to another machine because I am sure they were given to me. I didn't buy them.
I am on good soil, but have you tried to push the ploughs, not easy,unless there is a special knack ?.
I find the skimming attachment (hoes) or cultivators most easy to use.

I had a go with 2 ploughs fitted on soil that had already been cultivated and you have to push and then pull back, a bit like a push mower, but the ground did look ploughed after I'd finished.
You wouldn't be able to plough new ground, though. I didn't try the ridger, it's nearly as big as the one on the Merry Tiller and that has 3hp pushing it!
I reckon you'd need a good, strong person pulling on a rope in front as well..........

I managed to plough untouched ground with a the single fitted to my Jalo
 
It wasn't easy, but it helped that the ground was a little moist from previous rain.
 
It did look top notch afterwardsThumbs%20Up
