PROPAGATING AND PLUG TRAYS SHOULD BE DISLODGED BEFORE TRANSPLANTING, PROVIDED SUCH TRAYS HAVE GOOD MECHANICALLY-MADE DRAINAGE HOLES.
GROWING SYSTEMS' CONVERTIBLE PLUG DISLODGER is designed to accommodate all sizes of plug trays, using a common frame. The entire unit is hot-dip galvanized after welding, and heavy duty construction assures positive alignment. Pins are made of plated steel.
Our Plug Dislodger is a Floor Model, equipped with 4-inch caster wheels, and is easily moved to various locations.
Exchangeable Inserts and Hold-Down Units, installed with thumb screws, allow several plug tray sizes to be dislodged with one machine.
Available with Manual Foot Treadle or Automatic Air Assist.
Depth of Pin Penetration is adjustable.
Another Model is Available for taller plant material, such as Tree Seedlings Effective hold-down of trays with staggered rows is accomplished by inserting the tray under hold-down blades, which are adjustable for height and side-to-side positioning. Pneumatic air cylinders are actuated by a hand valve. Plated tapered rivets "float" slightly, allowing the tapered end to locate the correct position under the drainage hole.
Hold-down Blades eliminate the need for a lid, enabling tall plant material to be dislodged.
