Like its big brother, it has a uni-body design, beginning with the formed cold roll steel base, incline soil drag and the welded steel upper hopper body which is all one unit. It is designed with the opening at the hopper end to fill with potting media in various ways. The basic unit has low small hopper, which can be fed with potting media. With the hopper included, it has a rear opening and is supplied with wood panels which can be removed or added to achieve the desired height. The hopper holds approx. 3/4-Cubic Yards.
An adjustable slide gate is provided to control the amount of soil conveyed up to be discharged. The soil is dispensed from the top drag evenly to the container below with a set of gates that can be adjusted to match the width of the container. This even flow is what gives the grower even compaction into the container. The drag chain operates on runners in the inclined hopper to provide a long life to the machine. Rails on the pot track belt can be adjusted from one end with ease, therefore changing the size of containers is a breeze with this machine.
