Twenty years is a generation of building a business from the ground up and developing a future for a family company. When Northwoods Nursery decided it was time to replace their 1996 Mayer 1010, it wasn’t because it wasn’t meeting the needs and demands of their production line. The machine had served the business well for 20 years and they simply decided that it was time to upgrade to the updated 2016 model, which featured newer technology advancements.
The Mayer brand has always been known for its reliability and quality, beginning four generations ago when they pioneered the potting machine. As all growers are aware, the potting machine is an essential part of the production line and is usually the starting point in automation. Accurate dibbling and consistent soil compacting are a pivotal part of positive crop development.
Mayer has long been the industry leader in potting machines and have set the standard on technology, reliability and superior performance. Mayer machines have been helping growers for generations to simultaneously increase the quality and volume of their products while decreasing overall operation labor costs.
The Mayer 1010 features a large soil hopper which can process heavy substrates without any harm to its structure and also facilitates continuous processing at a high output rate. It has an electronic variable speed control and maintains smooth operations, even at high speeds. Changeovers are a breeze with a fast central adjustment for various pot sizes and unit is also compatible with all popular automation and transplanting systems.
The Mayer 1010 has a attractive price point and is a machine that no grower should be without.
