Watch out for these common mistakes:
Row spacing is adjusted on the transplanter by sliding the seat and foot mount. To set the spacing, distance should be measured from the center of the tool bar.
Before beginning transplanting, shoes and skies should be evaluated for condition and cleanliness. Holes, dishes, and clogs can make the performance inconsistent. It is especially important that the plant release gap and kicker at the aft of the shoe is clear of clogs. Excessively wet field conditions can cause this gap to clog while in operation.
Maintaining consistent tire pressure in drive wheel and transmission wheel is important to ensure consistent and accurate timing. It is best to check tire pressure before planting so that the plants are placed consistently from beginning to end of planting.
