ROOT AND POTATO DIGGERS.

Blair Engineering bought over the manufacturing rights and supply of spares for the Ransomes range of potato lifting equipment when Ransomes left the Agricultural Equipment market. Most popular amongst this range is the Root Crop and Potato Diggers.
These machines will dig potatoes, carrots, bulbs and onions etc. from the ground, clean and separate them from soil and trash in the heaviest of crops in all soil conditions. They employ a two stage elevating and discharge system using separate traces. Traces are supplied with alternate up and down rods to provide pockets for crops to be elevated with minimum roll back. Machines are fitted as standard with one set of agitators to give 57 mm throw on the main elevator and on the rear conveyor. If more agitation is required up to two more sets of agitators may be fitted in place of existing rollers and larger agitators giving 107 mm throw are available. Plain or rubber covered rod links are available on both traces and alternative share blades are available to suit the crop. Depth is controlled by adjustable depth wheels incorporating discs for weed and haulm control.
The PTO drive is protected by a safety clutch on main digger shaft.
The crop is deposited in tidy rows for easy hand picking with maximum soil separation and minimum damage.
