I have been using one since 2009. I cultivate by hand and tend to make
shorter beds. Most of my beds are 4 rows wide and 88 - 132 ft. long. 88'
is the length of a 4" paperpot tray and 132 is a 6" paperpot tray. If your
soil is stony, it will be difficult to pull the transplanter straight
enough to reliably cultivate a multirow bed with a G.
