I am adapting the potatoe plow I rigged up last year for one of my garden tractors to fit on to the ferguson tractor. It's quick attach to the ferguson and then still can be removed and used on the garden tractor. I am going to make the plow part a little wider also. I like using many tractors for the same task, just to see the difference. Plus my potatoe hills are taller this year and the garden tractor will not clear the row. Even the ferguson will be close or be touching. Any way we will see what happens.

The potato plows I have seen and used had a wide shovel that had a blunt point and went straight up the sides.  About 14 -16" wide.  They lift the entire width of the growing area that way.  If yours don't lift the potatoes enough you might try the wider full length type shovel.  Good luck.  Digging out 2 - 30' rows tomorrow the old fashioned way - potato fork and pails.

You must be a really big Potato Farmer to need that equipment!

Good luck with your crop!
