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

    The transplanter is a modular design.  Each Dual transplanter unit is mounted on a tool bar.  The transplanter machine is configured for planting 2,4, and 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.



    • Large 12 cup distributor with flat bottom opening cup for reduced noise and reduced wear
    • 4000-5000 plants/hr per operator
    • Rotary Tray holder 4 tray capacity
    • 2 and 3 shelf tray holders optional


    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.

    Ground wheel
    • Ground wheels carry the weight of the machine and drive the planting operation.
    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.


    The planting unit is mounted on the tool bar with a parallelogram 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.

    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.

    • Transplant units float independently on a high range Parallelogram to follow ground contour.
    • The tension is adjustable to counter balance the planter and operator.
