Demtec 3016 Potting Machine

The Demtec 3016 is an incredibly versatile potting machine, and will give years of reliable service. Capable of working automatically with pots from 7 cm to 26 cm and 26 cm - 35 cm, it benefits from a solid chassis and a large 3000 L hopper. Versatility comes from 8 to 16 station potting rings, with centralised adjustments - making changes between different pot sizes quick and simple. Large pneumatic tyres and a towing arm makes for good mobility, and comes standard,  with a pot dispenser, automatic pot take-off arm and wide exit conveyor.

The Demtec 3016 has an easily adjusted 'pneumatic' double-sided pot dispenser, which is exceptional with second hand pots (if you reuse them). The strong linear pot take-off arm has a very smooth action and allows pots to be removed onto the wide take-off conveyor with little effort or disturbance. Because pots used on this machine are usually larger, the wide conveyor has additional rollers added for smooth running.

Unique features include a system in the soil hopper to prevent 'soil bridging' and a soil return conveyor eliminating overfilling  of the soil elevator. Bare root potting is also easy, as the 3016 comes supplied with the bare root system - allowing pots to be part filled and then topped up from centre spilled soil after the shrub is placed in the pot.

This model is 3-phase but converters can be used if 3-phase is not available in your nursery. We can also provide you with a 6 or 10 m³ static or mobile soil hopper to feed your Demtec 3016 potting machine with extra media if necessary (See the Den 6,000 and Den 10,000).
