Demtec's best potting machine yet, this filler should be the standard potting machine for everyone working with pots from 6 up to 27 cm (2.4” to 10.6”).

A pouring edge can be made which is ideal for mulching (e.g. bark).Improvements on previous model

  1. The chassis has two front air tires, positioned wider, to improve stability. Two swiveling coasters on the back make the machine maneuverable. A detachable tow bar is optional.
  2. The tub and turntable has been adjusted for more stability in high speed settings (at 4200 pot/hour it still runs smoothly). The height of the tub has also been lowered for better ergonomics. 
  3. More space created for the evacuation soil coming from the drill and the soil return system has been redesigned to help run the machine with specific soil compositions such as coco fiber soil and clay (for example) easier.
  4. The soil feed belt now has the flexibility to run backwards if something jams or if the grower wants to change the kind of soil. The automatic soil regulation system has a selector to place the settings of the system for small and big pots. 
  5. The central adjustment system is a very important feature of the EVO2 where center rods are used to enable you to work with a fixed drill position. 
  6. The central switch box has been moved to improve accessibility and create more space for the pot feeding belt. Some instruments are now placed over the turntable on a pivoting arm. 
  7. Standard pot de-stacker will be the DTC2B pot de-stacker and will be mounted (standard) on the front plate with a pivoting pot-feed belt. The pot ejector is equipped with a new safe guard.
