Dulnain Bridge Plant Ltd (owned by Christie Elite Nurseries) has two Bracke planting machines in operation in Scotland. As they partly have new operators on the machines, an instructor at Bracke Forest was asked to come over for a two day training of the operators, both new and “old”.
- It´s great when the customers ask for this service, says Jukka Alakorpi, instructor for the P11 at Bracke Forest. It´s not only about the operating itself, the settings on the machine has to be right to achieve highest possible planting capacity.
For two, rainy and windy, days the operators were trained in computer settings, working patterns and working techniques. After that they went back to their daily work with higher skills, and capacity. Hopefully a little happier as well.
