[Market-farming] Garlic planters

Does anyone use a mechanical planter that just drops seed cloves into a 
trench without regard to 'pointy end up'?  Can anyone tell me if 
orientation of the clove is of concern except for really high end, 
perfect garlic?  Some say that the bulb will be distorted if planted 
indiscriminately.  At sorting time can those bulbs be simply put in the 
'not quite gourmet' pile and be used for other grades?

Just looking at a garlic planter on ebay, probably made in China, but 
sold from the Ukraine.
