Title (EN) EXCAVATION AND TRANSPLANTING OF PLANTS WITH A BALL OF SOIL
(FR) EXCAVATION ET TRANSPLANTATION DE PLANTES AVEC MOTTE DE TERRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Apparatus for excavating and transplanting of plants and trees comprising interlockable curved blades (16) detachable from the driving apparatus (32, 33) such that several soil-balls and several sizes of soil-ball can be excavated consecutively by the apparatus driving each blade (16) successively by the transfer of momentum from a rapidly reciprocating device (32, 33) producing little resultant reactive force. The soil-balls so dug are secured in the temporary reusable containers formed by sets of interlocked blades, and may be extracted from the plantation by normal lifting and transporting means to the place of transplanting, without the encumberance of the excavating apparatus accompanying each plant. The apparatus incorporates means for guidance (1, 2, 15, 21) of the detachable blades during driving and means (17) for guided rotation and positioning of the apparatus about the vertical axis of the tree.
(FR)Appareil d"excavation et de transplantation de plantes et d"arbres comprenant des couteaux incurves verrouillables entre eux (16) amovibles par rapport au dispositif d"enfoncement (32, 33) de sorte que l"appareil puisse excaver plusieurs mottes de terre et plusieurs dimensions de mottes de terre consecutivement, enfoncant chaque couteau (16) successivement par transmission d"une force provenant d"un dispositif a mouvement alternatif rapide (32, 33) produisant une petite force resultante de reaction. Les mottes de terre ainsi excavees sont retenues dans les containers temporaires reutilisables formes par des ensembles de couteaux verrouilles entre eux et peuvent etre extraites de la plantation a l"aide de moyens de levage et de transport courants sans que l"on soit embarrasse par l"appareil d"excavation accompagnant chaque plante. L"appareil comprend des moyens de guidage (1, 2, 15, 21) des couteaux amovibles pendant l"enfoncement et des moyens (17) de guidage de la rotation et du positionnement de l"appareil par rapport a l"axe vertical de l"arbre.
