Tree Coach ™ was initially designed to improve newly planted tree development by enabling flexibility of movement and controlling water efficiencies.
The design exceeded the initial brief by further enhancing OH&S activities, in that we have removed the repetitious activity of mechanical ramming with an 15kg rammer operated at height. A 92% reduction in material handling weight, compared with traditional methods.
When planting 50 trees, that is 70kg of plastic handling, compared to 2.55 tonne for the timber staking processes. By avoiding ramming, we further avoid machine vibration to hands and reduce exposure to repetitive strain injuries, etc.
