1980 Nursery Transplanter 

 The Mechanical Transplanter Model 1980 is one of the best units available for planting small to mid-sized nursery seedlings. The 1980 plants at ground speed for ideal plant placement. The large coulter, 4" by 12" shoe, and covering disc all work the soil for optimum plant placement. This allows for no J-rooting.


  • The direct drive, provided by two non-directional tires, gives evenly spaced, straight plant lines without wheel slippage
  • The large plant boxes, with an easy to use baffle, pulls the plants to the operator when needed



Model 2000 Transplanter 

 The 2000 is by far the largest of all the Mechanical Transplanters. Being a 1/3 larger than most units, the 2000 is able to handle 4 to 5 year old Taxus and tree whips up to 5 feet in height. The pockets, driven by front non-direction tires, move at ground speed inside the long shoe which gives the roots time to spread out before they are firmly packed in place.


  • Large neoprene pockets that will hold any size plant
  • Huge plant boxes have conveyor belt driven by simple foot action
