The topping machine is suitable for processing bark and other topping materials. The combination of the frequency-controlled motors of the elevator conveyor belt, the soil belt and the snares with the metering unit means that everything can be set extremely accurately. Two wipers are used to distribute the topped material and level the pots. Any excess material is returned to the storage bin. The machine is available in both a left- and right-oriented model and can be moved quickly thanks to the two fixed wheels and the two swivel castors. Fits easily into any system or set-up with conveyor belts.
