Just described in the article o>n Windfell Farm, the Jetspeed also has the diversity to convert from transplanter to boom sprayer to cultivator; The machine can plant from one to 18 rows, and the rows can be spaced as desired from 2 to 60 inches apart (with wing units). An attachment is available for planting through black plastic mulch.

A smaller unit, the Jetmaster, is a hand-

pushed transplanter designed for planting two 3-foot beds at a time, at any desired spacing, witli the same water-jet planting mechanism. Speed-ling transplants are set by hand by workers following the unit. A whole line of intermediately scaled tools and machinery is designed for a permanent-bed row-crop system.

Ellis Model 450

This is a one-row transplanter with three-point hitch and a 55-gallon barrel which mounts directly over the hitch and makes it easy to lift. The unit can be attached to some tractors without a three-point hitch, by mounting the barrel on the tractor. These tractors include the John Deere M and MT, the International C, Super A, Cub, and 140, and the Allis-Chalmers CA, D10, DI2, and WD. The one-row unit will plant up to 5,000 plants per hour.
