about the machine

The BEKIDAN-Potting machine is designed for filling pots with soil, with or without the use of trays. 

The potting machine consists of a basic unit that can be fitted with dispensers, drilling unit, tray stacker, conveyer belt and a single line system. The basic version allows for 1 tray dispenser and 2 pot dispensers. 

Dispensers and drilling units are designed specifically for the pot- and tray type, and are easily and quicky changed on the machine. The potting machine has a capacity of 500 trays per hour.

The potting machine is designed as a compact and user friendly unit and with a length of only 3,1 m, it gives the operator optimal conditions for monitoring the whole

process, while allowing easily the filling of trays and pots to the dispensers.

The pots are either placed into a tray by the dispensers or (with larger pots) placed directly on the conveyer belt of the machine, where they are filled with soil. 

The potting machine can also be used for filling directly into “speedling” trays. 

Soil is supplied to the potting machine from a soil mixer or other equipment, which automatically feeds soil into the funnel of the potting machine. 

The potting machine is designed for the soil to be handled carefully and does not damaging the structure of the soil.
