I’m curious as to how much interest there would be in a self propelled transplanter. I’ve recently seen some made for corn and such. This would be for tobacco, tomatoes and other started plants.

Like this but for tobacco? Smaller? Larger?

It would have to be that size or smaller. I plan to purchase a used newer model setter that utilizes float trays. It would be based on a design like this yes. You’d still have to put the plant in the cone manually but it would still be a one man operation. With a little modification, it might be converted into a harvester for stalk curing to save some back work. I hadn’t seen this machine. I got the idea from a machine listed on JohnnySeeds after seeing their planter.
