Daily helpers for any work task

Working in nurseries, greenhouses or tree nurseries is greatly facilitated by Weidemann machines. The efficient use of space with a narrow layout represents a particular challenge here. Many work processes that traditionally are done by hand or with a wheelbarrow or dollies can thus be taken over by using our compact designed machines.

It all comes down to making the right decisions when acquiring new machines. For decades, Weidemann machines have been successfully used as multi-tools in nurseries and greenhouses, which depend on small machine dimensions and turning radii.

Optimal working ergonomics

In the development of the Weidemann machines, working ergonomics plays a crucial role – with spacious overhead guards or cabins with ideal all-round visibility, through operator's controls that are easily accessible and largely self-explanatory, even for changing operators. The working environment in our cabins is excellent, thanks to an efficiently working heating and ventilation system. For particularly hot outdoor temperatures, we recommend the air conditioning.

Activities and applications in nurseries and greenhouses

Discover the possibilities with some examples.

  • Cultivating vegetables

    Whether for planting or harvesting work, tasks can be completed more easily in any season with machine support from Weidemann. You can choose from a wide selection of attachments, such as pallet forks, buckets, ground planers or transport containers.

  • Moving plant pots

    Traditional spring and autumn uses are perfectly supported with the right Weidemann machine with a good view of the load and our large selection of pallet forks. It is also possible to hydraulically adjust the tines. We offer a fold-up pallet fork for driving on streets.

  • Trailer operation

    Use the Weidemann machine as a tractor – this is very easily possible, for example, with the model 1380 and the trailer that is matched to this in size and payload. With a pairing width of 1.04 m, it can also be used to drive on narrow paths and to work in green spaces or parks at any time, for example.

  • Moving green waste

    You can safely move and unload bush and tree cuttings with the crate rotating unit with the matching waste container without leaving anything behind. You can access any area that is only accessible on narrow paths with the small compact Weidemann machines.

  • Mobile work

    Simply drive to your client: you can transport the small series on a trailer so that you can perform tasks at various application areas, such as in parks and gardens, cemeteries or in the city centre area. Their mobility and multi-functionality make our machines unique.

  • Cleaning

    Weidemann machines can be equipped with various sweeping machines, weed brooms, high-pressure cleaners or sweepers in order to remove dirt of any kind. In this way, you always keep your grounds and working environment clean during on-site applications.

  • Emission-free work

    The 1160 eHoftrac is in its zone here: the battery-operated machine eliminates exhaust fumes and noise from your everyday work. One battery charge lasts for a work application of 2 to 5 hours, depending on the application conditions. Interim charges are possible at all times. The battery charger sits behind the battery directly in the machine.

  • Filling planters

    Various buckets and transport attachments are available for filling planters – and they are all tailored to your machine size. It makes earthmoving a delight.

  • Transport work

    All things that need to be transported at a nursery can be moved with a Weidemann machine. You can pick up and lift the transport goods absolutely securely with the right attachments, such as a pallet fork, various buckets or grippers. The lifting height and stability play a crucial role for stocking the shelf systems.

  • Plot maintenance

    Also use a Weidemann machine to trim hedges, bushes and trees: a double-knife mower (brush), rear trimmers (for branches up to 25 mm in thickness) or a pruning saw (40 to 100 mm branch thickness) are available for this purpose.

  • Green space maintenance

    A constantly recurring task is maintaining green spaces, which have to be mowed regularly. The Weidemann machine combined with a rotary mower, mulcher or a flail mower with collecting tray is recommended here.

  • Winter service

    Weidemann machines can be equipped with various snow blades and rear spreaders, depending on the model. This gives you valuable support in winter service to keep the grounds free of snow and ice.
