OPERATION PRINCIPLE

The machine is connected to a tractor through a three-point hitch mechanism. If it will be used as a fertilizing unit, then the fertilizer storage is filled and the driveshaft is connected to the power take-off a tractor and the amount of fertilizer to be dispensed is adjusted by the setting handle. Seeds prepared in advance for plantation are filled into the storage. The potato seeds inside the storage come in front of planter workers who are seated on the backside of the machine through three sections. The potatoes which are manually taken from the section of the seed storage are placed one by one into the moving built-in metal sockets on the endless chain. With the turning movement of the sockets, seeds are carried to the vertical groove. And from there, they are dropped to the bed opened by the seed planter tine. Plantation is completed by covering the dropped seeds with the help of furrow closing moldboard tines. The fertilizers which are brought on the planter tines are dispensed by furrow-closing tines so as not to contact seeds.
