Potato digger

Postby kellylas » Sat Jan 03, 2015 12:28 pm

Does anyone know of someone making a one row potato digger that would just pull through the patch and lay the potatos on the top. Also could it be used to get garlic up?

It is about as good looking of a homemade one I have seen.

The ones i've seen are all homemade. A simple flat spade with forks on one end to catch the potatoes, but let the dirt fall back down.

I have one on my cub similar to clint's and it works fine on taters. Agree beats a potato fork or shovel and can be used to make furrows when planting taters.
