If you own or manage a nursery, vineyard or farm, you know that mulching is a necessary task for optimal plant and tree health. Mulch shades and cools the soil, adds organic matter and nutrients, reduces compaction, and prevents other grasses and plants from growing under and competing with the roots. But you also know that mulching can be one of the most time-consuming and labor-intensive jobs you have to undertake.
Row mulchers can help you save time and money and are one of the best equipment investments you can make for your operation. Read on to find out why!
- Get mulching done faster, and with less labor
Smart owners know that time is money, and with a row mulcher on the job you’ll get your mulching chores done in record time. Even better, a single laborer can fill the hopper and spread mulch throughout your property quickly and efficiently. No more crews with rakes, shovels and wheelbarrows taking hours and days to accomplish what a row mulcher can accomplish in minutes.
- You can utilize the equipment you already have
Nothing is worse than investing in a piece of machinery only to find out that it isn’t compatible with what you already own. All of our Standard models are available in either tractor or PTO hydraulic drive, which means they work with the equipment you are already utilizing. You can power the mulcher through your tractor’s hydraulic drive if it is so equipped or you can choose a mulcher with a built-in PTO drive system that can be pulled with any tractor.
- You can easily fill large containers
We know that many growers utilize large containers for growing trees and plants to control soil moisture and fertility. We also know that filling these containers can be backbreaking and tedious work. To eliminate this, we offer an optional pot filler attachment that allows our mulchers to easily fill large nursery containers quickly and accurately without spilling. In addition, our extension conveyor option makes it easy to drop fill just where you need it. This option has been used successfully to backfill around pipelines, and other unique projects.
- You can customize to suit your specific operation
A Millcreek Row Mulcher is the most versatile piece of equipment you will ever own. Not only can you choose the best model and optional features for your unique application, but you can shape the application how you want it. The directional fins adjust to control the throw distance from 0 to 8 feet, and with our unique extension conveyor you can throw material up to 35 feet from the machine.
