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 1-6 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.

The Wolf is suitable for transplanting in open fields as well as greenhouses and for planting on plastic film
