Bark / Media Topper 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Nursery Automation

The Willburg Projecten Bark Topper is a system that rotates the pots at a predetermined speed to evenly distribute bark, nut shells, rice hulls or any media to your required depth. The Bark Topper has 7 variable speed motors that enable you to individually control speed, rotation, and material flow at rates at up to 5000 pots per hour. A photo eye starts and stops the machine allowing for minimum recycling of media and precise distribution without having to vibrate the pot. The machine is of solid, durable construction built to give many years hard service. Topping your pots will prevent weed growth and moss formation, giving a good presentation, saving time and money at shipping time.
