Demtec 4016 Potting Machine

The Demtec 4016 potting machine is an incredibly versatile machine, and is a great all rounder most suited to the advanced nursery stock grower. It's optimised for Australian and New Zealand conditions and will give years of reliable service. Capable of working automatically with pots from 13 cm - 40 cm, the Demtec 4016 benefits from a solid chassis and a large 3000 L hopper (expandable to 5000L). Adjustments between different pot sizes are quick and simple. The 4016 comes complete with large pneumatic tyres, towing arm, a pot dispenser, automatic pot take-off arm and wide-exit conveyor (as per your requirements in various widths and lengths).

The Demtec 4016 features an easily adjusted double-sided pot dispenser which is exceptional with second hand pots (if you reuse them). The strong pot take off arm has a very smooth action and allows the large pots to be removed to the take-off conveyor with little effort or disturbance. Because pots used on this machine are usually larger, the conveyor is wide and has additional rollers.

Unique features include a system in the soil hopper to prevent 'soil bridging' and a soil return conveyor that eliminates over-fill of the soil elevator. Bare root potting is also easy, as the machine comes supplied as standard 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.

Supplied standard as 3-phase, we can convert if you nursery does not have this on-site. We can also provide 6 or 10 m³ static or mobile soil hoppers to feed the potting machine with extra media if necessary (Den 6m³ and 10m³ models).
