Royal Enfield Bullet plows for a living


Indian made Royal Enfield Bullets are available for service with the army and police, deliver the milk to cities and even plow the fields, according to The Times of India. Here is a picture of the "Bullet Santi" (Bullet plow) being operated by its inventor, a farmer. He uses it to plow, sow and weed fields. The conversion costs small farmers less than even a mini-tractor.

The inventor created it in the early 1990s, but it is in the news now because it has helped inspire a new "club" in India to support innovative technology solutions. Companies that want to use the imaginative devices would have to license them.

Mansukh Jagani's Bullet Santi was patented by Grassroots Innovation Augmentation Network (GIAN) in the U.S. as well as India. Apparently the motorcycle can easily be detached to serve as transportation, but it is no longer a very thrilling ride since part of the conversion to plow is a conversion to a husky but less powerful diesel motor.
