水车:

      水车又称孔明车,是我国最古老的农业水利灌溉工具,是先人们在征服和改造世界的过程中创造出来的高超技艺,是珍贵的历史文化遗产。相传为汉灵帝时华岚造出雏形,经三国时诸葛亮-孔明改造完善后在蜀国推广使用,隋唐时广泛用于农业灌溉,至今已有1700余年的历史了。

      水车也叫天车,外形酷似古式车轮,轮辐直径大的20米左右,小的也在10米以上,可提水高达15---18米,轮辐中心是合抱粗的轮轴,轮轴支撑着木辐条,呈放射形向四周展开,辐条的顶端带有刮板和水斗,刮板刮水,水斗装水,河水冲来,借用水势缓缓带动十多吨重的水车转动,一个个水斗装满了河水后被逐级提升,临顶,水斗在重力作用下自然倾斜将水注入渡槽,顺渡槽而流到需灌溉的农田里。一般大水车可灌溉农田六、七百亩,小的也可灌溉一、二百亩。在古代水车应算是先进的工具了。
