Guess I need to visit some of my neighbors who raise potatoes. Smile

Irish or sweet? Does the same digger design work for both? There is a good bit of sweet potatoes grown around here but I have never seen anything but a one row machine. Then I have not been around the real pros digging either.

Thats a small one. I think it does 3 rows at a time. The big one I think does 6, but it is huge...takes up the whole road. They grow potatoes for the french fry industry. Two very large french fry plants there. Not sure hoe they dig sweet potatoes but I imagine the same way.

Yup, you know it's a big harvester when it needs a customized tractor to pull it.

This is a 4 row harvester, which isn't even , as Harry mentioned, the biggest one by any means. It weighs 24,500 pounds empty and needs a minimum of 200hp just to run it, but under the right conditions it will harvest a little over 7 acres an hour.

Best of luck.

OK, some equipment just amazes me.

Murf, you did or do raise potatoes, correct? Is that your rig?
