The Foxdrive Plus is the Checchi & Magli transplanter par excellence. Equipped with a distributor that features 5, 10, 15 or 20 grippers for an inter-plant distance of between 13 cm and 140 cm, it is a professional ally for transplanting sweet potatoes.
"The Foxdrive Plus is appreciated by sweet potato growers all over the world for its simplicity and, at the same time, for the many different adjustments that can be made to obtain a perfect transplant. We have recently introduced a new kit that allows the planting of bare-root crops at 45°. With the Foxdrive Plus, we can also transplant conical, pyramid and cubic plant peat plugs, with a potential production of up to 2,500 plants per hour per operator".
The transplanting units are equipped with a parallelogram to adapt to different soil conditions and to ensure a uniform transplanting penetration, which can also be adjusted by using the furrow opener.
The most basic design includes large trays for storing seedlings that need an adequate and spacious shelf. To meet all needs, the Foxdrive Plus is available from 1 to 12 rows with both a fixed chassis and a new folding hydraulic TPIX frame, which is useful for staying on track.
There are many accessories to further customize the machines.
The most common options for sweet potato growers are a synchronised watering device, a 300 litre water tank, a cutting disc, manual or hydraulic track markers and flexible compactor wheels that are ideal for wet and clayey soils.
