How to make nursery work easier on your back

Making our 200-litre bales easier to handle ‑ an instructive video

Our 200-litre bales hold a lot of product, and our customers appreciate this. It means, however, that these packaging units are not exactly in the featherweight class.

In the nursery, 200-litre bales are removed from the pallet by hand and then mechanically ‑ or, often, manually ‑ reduced in size before the growing medium is used in the potting machine. This process can put a real strain on workers’ backs, so anything that makes the job easier is to be welcomed.

And help is at hand: there’s a simple solution that enables these bales to be halved in size. All you need is a sharp knife. See for yourself!
