Several types of sod cutters are available, each designed for specific tasks and conditions. United Rentals has manual and gas-powered cutters available. Manual sod cutters, also known as the "kick-plow" type, are simple tools with long handles and a crossbar. They have a flat blade at ground level that you can adjust to cut sod at the desired depth, and they are most suitable for smaller residential projects. Gas-powered sod cutters are more powerful than manual cutters and can cover larger areas more efficiently. They are usually self-propelled and come in different widths to accommodate various project sizes.
Yes, sod cutters are generally easy to use, but the ease of operation can depend on the type of sod cutter you use. All sod cutters will be easier to use if the soil is moist, as this softens the ground and makes the cutting process smoother. It's also recommended to mark out the area you plan to cut before you start to ensure a neat and even job. Safety gear, such as gloves and sturdy footwear, should be worn when operating any sod cutter.
