TR series is the basic entry level for potting machines
With a 1,800 litre soil storage hopper, the media is elevated and discharged through chutes which can be either single or double. Soil can recycle continuously at a rate of 100 litres per minute or be regulated using a foot pedal. Pots are manually loaded and filled on the grilled work table. The table being grilled allows for the excess soil to be recycled. A vibrating table option is available so soil density can be controlled.
Suitable for pots ranging in size from 100mm to 400mm.
Machines have wheels and forklift slippers for relocating.
Double opening hungry boards can be fitted to the hoppers to increase their holding capacity.
TV1 has 3,000 litre soil storage hopper. The electronic control of the vibrating table makes it possible to pack the media in the pot evenly and quickly.
Da Ros’s potting machines are suitable for filling plastic pots automatically. Complete with a soil hopper with capacities 700 to 1,800. Hoppers can be to the rear, side and front of the machine.

The pot transport conveyor belt which passes under the filling chute also has a built in vibrator unit.
There is no hazard for the operator because the pots moving forward under the chute on the smooth transport belt are laterally guided. Any split soil remaining on the transport belt falls onto a recovering bottom belt conveyor which then moves the spilt soil back to the main hopper.
Standard rotating table style machines are available for filling pots, dibbling a hole, fertilizing dispensing and finally transfer of the pots onto a pot transport belt conveyor for inserting of plants or seeds either manually or with a transplanter or seeding machines.
Pots 80mm – 240mm can be accommodated and dispensed either manually or automatically with the use of a pot destacker (optional). The speed of potting media filling, pot movement and vibration can be easily controlled by the electrical control panel.
Soil discharge rates are 250 litres per hr allowing 500 to 2,500 pots per hour to be processed.
Feeding conveyors for pot dispensers can be incorporated into the potting machine.
The operation speed of the potting machine and the amount of potting media dispensed can be adjusted with ease.
Compressed air may be required for some of the more advanced functions.
Earthen pots can also be used if they are loaded by hand. With easy adjustment, the potting machine can adapt to various kinds of pots.
