Photograph for illustration purposes - standard specifications may not match those shown.

The transplanter is a modular design.  Each transplanter unit is mounted on a tool bar.  The transplanter machine is configured for planting 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 rows by mounting the desired number of transplanter modules onto a suitably sized tool bar with the module positioned at the desired inter-row spacing.  The tool bar incorporates a driveline which is powered by ground-engaging wheels which ensure the transplanter operation is synchronised with ground travel.  The inter-plant distance is set by the selected gear setting in the driveline mechanism.

FEATURES OF THE CHECCHI & MAGLI FOXDRIVE R14 TRANSPLANTER

DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM

The operator is seated above each transplanter module within easy reach of the plant boxes.  The operator puts the seedlings into the finger grips which gently places the plants into the furrow.

Holder
  • Standard plant boxes for plant storage

DRIVELINE

The ground-engaged wheel provides the driving mechanism for the transplanter system ensuring each planting action is accurately synchronised with the ground travel along the planting beds.
Drive Wheel
  • Ground wheels carry the weight of the machine and drive the planting operation.
Clutch
Hex Drive Shaft
  • Overload safety clutch on driveline protects the entire machine and the planting mechanism if plants or cell material block the machine.
  • Once the blockage has been cleared the safety clutch auto-resets to restart the operation.
  • Heavy duty 22mmHex Drive Shaft across machine.

PLANTING UNIT

The planting unit is mounted on the tool bar with a springframe which provides a tension to counter-balance the weight of the planter, reducing ground pressure, which enables the planter to consistently float along the plant bed.The front press wheel firms the planting zone before the ploughshare creates the furrow into which the seedling is planted in a precise upright position.

The planting mechanism is synchronised with the ground travel to accurately maintain the pre-set inter-plant spacing of the seedling into the furrow in a smooth coordinated action. The trailing packing wheels then press the soil around the seedling.

Front Press Wheel
  • Adjustable Front Press Wheel.
  • Optional disc Kit for High Trash - is shown between front press wheel and ploughshare.
  • Optional clod separator can be fitted before the ploughshare.
