The puncher roller can pierce through plastic mulch or mark out lines in the soil for sowing or transplanting. This tool is very adaptable: you can choose the spacing between each plant and the number of rows you require for holes or markings.

The puncher roller consists of a frame with a roller made up of several wheels with spikes. You pull the tool as you walk along the side of the bed. You can also push the roller to ensure a better perforation of the plastic mulch.
