Going to try out my potatoe plow today. May need some adjustments before paint. It maybe to small. May need extensions or fingers added. Noel

I bet that plow will work just fine as long as you get it deep enough that you get under the potatoes and not cut them up.

I see the mower deck still on....you going to mow the hills down as you plow the taters :poke:

Good luck with that. I dig enough hills for the table early in the season. But if I had to dig the whole crop with a fork I would not grow near as many. I had enough years ago when the ground was so hard you would bend fork tines.

That looks good Noel. You might want to add a cage on the back of the shovel to let the dirt to fall out.
Dug mine yesterday and dad was saying I needed a cage bed behind and a shaker on mine.
I could power a shaker with my PTO.

Somewhere I saw a guy mount a 12 volt motor with an elliptical weight on it to shake the bed, since he did not have a rear PTO.

I think you would bend a fork in my garden most years JD. I use a shovel to dig them.
