Re: more self-propelled potato digger pics

It took approx 2.5 to 3 hours before we got going again. Anyone who is familar with a sandy lome soil type knows that its the worst stuff to get stuck in. We had to dig her out with a hoe and then the stx375 and a 9170 steiger pulled her out. but because she sunk so deep we had some welding and straightening to do.

We have had our quad stuck in that kind of soil, we were building a lagoon when the scraper got stuck. while the scraper was removed the quad sunk a little. tried to get going again and the tracks would just not turn. in the first gear, throttled up completely, rode the clutch, it didnt budge the tracks, she stalled in the first gear. had to dig it out too, now you probably know what kind of soil it is.
You probably notice that one wheel on the digger is not even dirty, it takes a quarter of a tire revolution san she is on the frame. and no that red beast did not walk away with her. the digger is somewhere between 55,ooo and 60,000 lbs. !!!!!!

Re: more self-propelled potato digger pics

Thanks mainsilver.
We are talking big time harvesting with your rig and I'd love to see it in action.
Imagine going back to a two row thing!! Smaller stuff is just playing like with toys.

Go big or get out is what I believe in most things.

How about butting four of those 800mm tires right tight against each other just like a barrel?
Then you'd never bog down.
