OUR TRANSPLANTER IS DIFFERENT THAN THE PAPERPOT TRANSPLANTER SOLD BY TERRATECK IN FRANCE (ALSO SOLD BY JOHNNY’S SEEDS). THIS IS THE ORIGINAL MADE IN JAPAN FOR OVER 40 YEARS. IT HAS A DIFFERENT DESIGN MAKING IT EASIER IT USE AND IS 5KGS LIGHTER.
The paper pot transplanter can be used for all paper chain pots we carry giving you the ability to space seedlings at 5, 10 and 15cm 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. The tool creates a furrow into the soil to receive the chain pots and the rear press wheels close the furrow around the plants.
Growers have used this tool to transplant lettuce, radishes, turnips, onions, peas, beans, herbs, and many more crops.
Assembled the device is 30cm wide and 210cm long. The handle height is adjustable from 80 - 110cm. The unit can be turned on the wheel by leveraging the handle down towards the ground, lifting the platform up in the air, facilitating use in tight spaces.
The transplanter is shipped in pieces and simple assembly is required (instructions supplied).
Soil structure is critical to the performance of this tool. Wet and heavy clay soils may make the device more challenging to use. The device works best in light soils with good tilth.
