This machine plants 6 or 8 rows simultaneously. There is a distance of 238 mm between one to another queue. This machine runs at a speed of one and a half to 2 km per hour. Its speed on the road is fast and it is more than 8 km per hour.
The entire crop of wheat and mustard is almost gone. After threshing, the process of government procurement is also starting. On the other hand, the government has announced the monsoon. This time there will be a better monsoon than usual. In such a situation, bumper yield of paddy is expected. Farmers are ready in the arrival of monsoon and preparation of paddy has started. The corona epidemic has also affected farming. Therefore, farmers want to increase the use of technology more and more. In this, a technology which is associated with the transplanting of paddy, its name is self propelled rice transplanter. The good thing is that the government also provides financial help to buy it.
As the name suggests, it is self-propelled, that is, we have to drive it ourselves, like we are a bike or a car tractor. It has a small diesel engine. Through this transplanter, we can plant paddy in 6-8 rows simultaneously. A gear box is attached to the diesel engine, which speeds up a wheel in the machine. With this, the machine grows in the field and plants the paddy together in 6 or 8 rows. The gear box has a propeller that powers the wheel to move forward.
How does the machine work
This machine is equipped with a tray, in which the rice pudding is put. As the machine progresses, the grooves made in the rear part of it are dropped in the field and it is planted. With the help of this machine, the cost of workers can be saved. Transplanting work is done by farm laborers, which is quite slow. Now, with the decreasing number of laborers, it is becoming necessary to take help of the machine. It is a single wheel machine which is 2410 mm long, 2130 mm wide, 1300 mm high. The machine is powered by a 4 hp air cooled diesel engine.
