RUFFLING MACHINES:

These machines drive over the sideboards in to the shelving.

The purpose of this machine is mixing the casing soil layer and can be used at several moments.

A: With the normal growing cycle (without caccing)

1st: After the casing is put on the compost, by machine or manually, the ruffling machine can mix and level the casing soil layer.

2nd: After between 7 and 10 days , when the mycelium has grown a few cm into the casing, the mycelium can be mixed all over the casing with the ruffling machine. This speeds up the growth and gives a more even result.

B: Growing with caccing method:

1st: After casing is put on the compost, by machine or manual, the ruffling machine mix and level the casing and at the same time take a small amount of compost up into the casing layer, this method is caccing ( CAC = Compost Added to Casing). This caccing material will inoculate the casing also with mycelium and can speed up the growing cycle with 1 week.

2nd: After 4 to 6 days (depending on amount mycelium) the casing soil layer can be ruffled to mix the mycelium all over the casing layer for a more even result.

The ruffling machine is lifted into the shelving by a machine lift and electrical power is connected by a special cable roll which wires on and off automatic so that 1 person can do the whole operation (however for safety always at least 2 people should be present!!!)

We have machines available for 1,34  – 1,36 – 1,40 m bed width but adapting to other dimensions can be possible.
