The machine transplant rice seedlings in rows. A seedling mat cut exactly into 20.5 cm wide by 40 cm long is used with the transplanter. When planting, the handle is pulled up and pushed down. With each downward stroke, the picker picks a number of seedlings out of the mat and puts them into the mud. At the upward stroke, the transplanter is pulled towards the operator. The free wheel is simultaneously actuated to move the chain. The attached seedling tray then moves horizontally to feed new seedling into the slot. These seedlings would be picked at the next stroke.
