Model 1500 - Conventional Transplanters
Quality designed for time proven results. Quality design, workmanship and materials have made our conventional bare root transplanters the proven leaders for over 65 years. These three models can plant over 50 plants per minute, depending on plant spacings. Two operators feed the seedlings into rubber grippers which hold and protect the plant as it is guided into the furrow. A variety of optional plant holders are available for different type of seedlings. There is also an optional holder for your small greenhouse cell plants. Field spacing adjustments are easily made by changing sprockets.
Models 1500, FWD1500 and 1600, offer the following quality construction as standard:
- Adjustability - closing guides, seats, footrest and plant box locations are all adjustable to your individual needs to assure faster and more comfortable planting.
- Solid steel chain tighteners prevent packing wheel slippage.
- Heavy duty drive chains, conveyor chains and cast iron sprockets minimize breakage downtime.
- Grease fittings - all moving parts have grease fittings for a long and dependable life span.
