The main component of the paper pot system. With this tool, one person can transplant 264 seedlings in minutes!
Handle height and furrow depth are adjustable.
The paper pot transplanter can be used for all paper chain pots we carry giving you the ability to space seedlings at 2, 4, and 6″ spacings. Chain pots are loaded onto the deck of the transplanter and are pulled out of the transplanter behind you as you pull the transplanter forward. A build in shoe cuts furrow into the soil to receive the chain pots while sweeps and the rear wheels close the furrow around the transplants.
The transplanter is versatile. Growers have used this tool to transplant lettuce, radishes, turnips, onions, peas, beans, herbs, and many more crops.
Assembled the device is 12″ wide and 84″ long. The height is adjustable from 32 to 44″
Immediately Make Your Farm More Efficient and Effective!
Transplant rows of seedling in minutes instead of hours. Think about what this time savings means. Less time you have to pay employees for. Less time in the field in heat reducing fatigue and transplant shock. Less time spent transplanting means you and your staff will more time available to work on other tasks. Purchasing the paperpot transplanter is like buying another employee – one you don’t have to pay and always works. Farmer Conor Crickmore of Neversink Farm credits this tool with “giving us an extra day off a week.”
Save Your Back!
Take the laborsome task of transplanting crop and make that task much faster and less demanding on your body. Instead of spending hours on your hands and knees or bending over a bed, you can transplant a row of seedlings in minutes simply by standing and pulling the transplanter. Over time that will save a lot of wear and tear on your back. As one grower stated, “for my back, it’s definitely worth it. It’s pricey, but so are monthly physical therapy appointments.”
The transplanter is shipped in pieces and simple assembly is required.
Soil structure is critical to the performance of this tool. Wet, heavy clay soils may make the device more challenging to use. The device works best in light soils with good tilth.
