In nursery practice, the old method of potting up large trees into bags or large pots was performed using shovels adjacent to the soil bunker.
Staff then either loaded the bags into a skid steer bucket or onto a low-loader trailer where the re-potted trees were transported to the growing areas where staff then dragged the trees and bags off the equipment and into position.
Using shovels may have also damaged plants during the repotting process. It was a tiring and a tedious process, which required heavy lifting. This had the potential to cause a back injury that could impact on a staff member’s future life, as well as cause workers compensation payments to blow out for the next 3 years.
To solve this problem, C-Mac has recently in conjunction with a large tree growing nursery developed a new product called “Bucket Bag Filler”. Trials have proved very successful and have greatly improved potting-up and bagging efficiency along with staff morale.
