Tater on top

Postby dirt devil » Sat Oct 06, 2007 9:35 pm

Well I dug my taters today using two of IH's finest. The plan was to use the 69 to pull the digger and use Bert to carry the barrels, but dad's 69 wasn't in the mood to cooperate. I had to run it with the choke out to keep it going when I started digging. But gave up shortly because of the mess I knew I was going to get into. Backed Bert right up to the digger and away we went. Check this video out of it in action. Now I can see my seat time dwindleing down as Hope is driving Bert so that I could set the depth of the digger. She was very kind and let me dig a couple rows to. :D 8)

Looks great Dave! Glad you got a little seat time too!

I am impressed, and that ain't easy.

Very nice! Sure looks easier than using the fork and wheelbarrow method.

Dirt Devil, I think you have the right name 8) :!: . I notice how beautiful the leaves on the trees are in the back ground, don't think we will have that here this year because of the drought. Also, those potatoes are something else, the size is amazing and it's good to see a machine still working great after all this time. Thanks for the pics, Pete

Now you just need to modify a carry-all so someone can sit close to the ground to pick them up. Looks like the vegetable cellar will have a good season's worth of spuds in it now.

Don

I have been looking for another Cub for some time but have a hard time with the want and need. Plus there aren't a whole lot in the free for the taking seciton of the local newspaper :shock: 8) Since dad doesn't use his very much I have sort of adopted it. Now I have to tune it up so it will run like Bert.

rjmac

I have thought about fixing something that would work like a transplanter rig set up to pick the taters. With the despeeder I have the right slow speed. I can think about one over the winter.

It was in first gear and a little over half throttle. Next time I will put some rear weights on. The tires are loaded so that was a big help.
