The vertical vibratory motion of the Power Potato Digger’s digging pan fractures the soil ahead of itself, eliminating the effort required to hand dig potatoes.
The angle of the 18″-wide pan is adjustable, allowing for a maximum penetration of 6” below the level of the two support wheels, which are 14” in diameter and can straddle hill widths ranging from 20” to 30”.
Located behind the pan is a set of horizontally vibrating bars through which the dirt and small stones fall. Plant residues are efficiently moved over the horizontal rods and deposited behind the unit.
