Spedo Potato Digger is a one or two row 3 point hitch mounted digger
for tractors that straddle one row centered or two rows of hilled potatoes
or other root crops. It will dig 12'' deep on level soil. The front
digging blade has oscillating bars above it to break up clods and keep
soil moving to the sifting chain. They are removable if the back and
forth action is not desired. The side colters cut vines and keep all of
the soil moving onto the sifting chain that has a 1'' gap between the
sifting chain links. It is also available in an economical one row shaker
digger for small tractors that uses vibrating sifting bars with a 1 1/8''
gap instead of a sifting chain, but does not include colters. It does not go very deep in level soil
so the potatoes must be in a hill at harvest.
