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 wheel 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 BABY TRIUM TRANSPLANTER

DISTRIBUTOR

The operator is seated above each transplanter module within easy reach of the seedling trays.  The operator places seedlings into the distributor cups which provides a buffer of plants feeding the planting mechanism.

Distributor
  • A large 10 cup distributor with flat bottom opening cup for reduced noise and reduced wear.
  • 4000/5000 plants/hr per row.
cup extensions
  • Cup Extensions for taller plants such as lavender and tea tree.
  • Reduction inserts for small seedlings.
Holder
  • Rotary Tray holder 4 tray capacity.
  • 2 and 3 shelf tray holders optional.

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 drive wheel firms the planting zone before the ploughshare creates the furrow into which the seedling is planted.

The gentle floating of the planter on the soil ensures accurate and consistent planting depth. The plant is dropped from the distributor into the planting ploughshare. The plant is held vertical in the ploughshare between a front curtain and the kicker. The planting mechanism is synchronised with the ground travel to accurately maintain the pre-set inter-plant spacing and the timing of the raising of the curtain and the pushing of the seedling by the kicker into the furrow in a smooth coordinated action. The trailing packing wheels then press the soil around the seedling.

Front Press Wheel
  • Optional disc Kit for High Trash - is shown between front press wheel and ploughshare
Swing Shoe
  • Swing down ploughshare for easy cleaning of soil build up from the seedling cells.
Kicker
  • The plant is held in upright until it is pushed into the furrow.
  • Plant is pushed into the furrow in a smooth action with the raising of the curtain and swing of the kicker.
Adjustable wheel
  • 3 way adjustment on the trailing packing wheels for all soil conditions
  • The packing wheels maintain accurate planting depth
Rubber Wheels
  • Alternative Rubber packing wheels for wet, sticky soil.
