English term or phrase: ROTOTILLER
«As earthworms tunnel, they mix and aerate the soil, like tiny ROTOTILLERS.»
Manuel O
Portuguese translation:máquina de lavrar
Explanation:
Rotary tillers are popular with home gardeners who want large vegetable gardens. The garden may be tilled a few times before planting each crop. Rotary tillers may be rented from tool rental centers for single-use applications, such as when planting grass.

A small rotary hoe for domestic gardens was known by the trademark Rototiller and another, made by the Howard Group, who produced a range of rotary tillers, was known as the Rotavator.
