Mounted my Transplanter today.

Postby Barnyard » Thu Apr 21, 2016 10:48 pm

I picked this up at an auction a couple of weeks ago and wanted to see how it fit the Cub. It looks a bit scary.

Looks like a Mechanical. I don't think I've ever seen one with row markers in these parts....

I got one this winter for my cub, one pt hitch. I got it to plant sweet potatoes, but I am not going to use it this season. Let me know how your cub handle it. With the water barrel and two people on the planter, I think with all that weight you will have to go to fast.

Interesting. Curious.

How much weight with two people in the transplanter seats can the Cub handle?

About how many gallons does the tank hold?
I have an excuse. CRS.

Looks interesting! That HAD to be a special day when that unit first came to the farm, imagine setting down and riding while planting, instead of the back breaking method.
Still looks to be a rough ride, hope you are able to video the maiden voyage?
Thanks and good luck !

The transplanters I see being used here (nursery and vegetable operations) are for two to six people and everybody gets off the transplanter when it comes time to turn the machine around. If memory serves me correct, the same was true for transplanting tomatoes in northwest Ohio. Bill Darr may be able to enlighten us on this.

Bruce, it has many broken fingers so I doubt it will get any use. More for show than anything. Besides, for what little we plant, we can have them in the ground by hand faster. :lol:

People have to get off when you lift the planter. It is that way on any of them.

Our tobacco transplanter doesn't require people to get off, but then again its also a trailer type and is lifted by a hydraulic cylinder.

'd like to know those answers also. I gues you have to keep the barrel full to keep the front wheels on the ground. Tank is probably 50-60 gallons.

Checked with brother in law who raised tomatoes for 26 years for Heinz. always had a pull type planter. People got off at end of row to reload plants. The Heinz plant in Fremont Ohio no longer uses local grown tomatoes, tomatoe paste is shipped by rail from California and the plant processes paste all year instead of seasonal.

Thats cause all we ever set out was baccer, and it was always hilled up first. Didnt need any row markers. :) We didn't get off at the ends, and ours was a three point style, but boy what a ride it was if you stayed on it! Better not be prone to motion sickness!
