This head filling machine is used for mechanical loading of compost and casing in bulk onto growing shelves.
The loading process is handled in conjunction with other supplementary machines, such as COMPOST HOPPER – ATLAS, PEAT HOPPER – ODYS (if the trailer is not supplied with adapter), CONVEYORS – HERMES (for compost and peat) as well as AJAX with PULLING WINCH MODULE or PULLING WINCH ACHILLES (equipped with multiple winding reels). These machines along with the head filling machine form one integrated process line, ensuring constant compost and casing loading onto the shelves in the growing room.



The anti-corrosion protection of the majority of structural elements of the machine are provided in “DUPLEX” system, i.e. hot dip galvanization and two layers of highly resistant to mechanical damage varnish coating. Selected parts of the machine are made of stainless steel.
