The elevator potato digger Junior has been designed to pick early and very delicate potatoes. The potato digger pick-up consists of a system comprising of 3-blade share, a swinging feeler roller for adjusting the digging depth and grass-cutting discs. The elevator-sieving belt is large (24") with intercalated bars to avoid rolling and peeling. The selection platform consists of a large belt (33") divided on the lateral sides by 2 plates to allow sorting of potatoes. In the centre of the belt the tubers and dug up material (dirt, stones, leaves, etc) are conveyed. The personnel, positioned on either side of the table, manually sort the potatoes and transfer them to the lateral sides of the belt. The picked product is conveyed into containers (bags, crates, boxes) placed on special supports located to the rear of the machine. The belts are hydraulically driven.
