Many summer residents during the harvest period need a reliable and, most importantly, a hardworking assistant. But it is not necessary for this to attract workers. Today, special harvesters are used for harvesting, coping with all the work in a matter of hours. However, in a small area of 5-10 acres, this technique is too cumbersome. For digging up of root crops on small grounds use motor-blocks with nozzles, such as a potato-digger or a dump for the motor-block Neva.
Attaching equipment for the Neva, Salyut and Kaskad motoblock will do a great job of picking potatoes and other crops. Such tips on the equipment greatly facilitate the lives of farmers. With their help, the crop is harvested without much time and labor costs.
The principle of operation of potato diggers for the Neva motoblock and other devices is the same. When submerged in soil, large teeth pick up roots and pull them up, allowing them to be collected from the surface of the earth. There are two types of devices:
- Simple. The design resembles a conventional shovel with two roundings and teeth located on top. The pointed part of the device sinks into the soil, lifting it along with the tubers. Excess soil falls through the cracks, and the tubers remain outside. Simple potato diggers are for light and heavy soils.
- Vibration. Rumble devices are equipped with a ploughshare and a sowing lattice. Grids-grids are located on wheels. In the process of work, the potato digger plunges into the ground and is fed to the grid along with the tubers. Already on it the whole mass is sifted, leaving only the roots. Tubers that did not fall on the grid remain lying on the ground, from where they can simply be assembled by hand.
Most potato diggers have the same design, only the manufacturer is different. Almost all devices are compatible with the Neva (including the Neva mb 2 motor-block), Salute, Centaur and other motor-blocks. In general, the design allows you to dig a crop very quickly. With its help not only time is saved, but also forces.Attention! Before you buy a nozzle, make sure that it is compatible with your walk-behind tractor or tractor.

The design works well on both medium and solid soils. However, when harvesting on the second type of soil, it is necessary to attach an additional knife. This creates a powerful vibration for the filtering grid, which makes it possible to sift the soil effectively.
The weight of the device does not exceed 39 kg. The work speed is standard - up to 2 kilometers per hour. It has a wide capture angle of 37 cm. The average cost per device is 8 thousand rubles.
Nozzle on the Garden Scout motor-block
The vibration type device is started by the rear shaft. The potato digger has the widest coverage of the cultivated soil from the presented models - 40 cm. However, this affects the weight of the device, it is 42 kg. Also, the nozzle is famous for its large penetration depth of working knives - up to 28 cm. When harvesting such a device can handle up to 0.2 ha of soil per hour. The price of the design ranges from 10.5 to 13 thousand. It is much cheaper to buy a nozzle in stores in Russia, as the manufacturing plant is located in China.
One of the lightest and most compact models of Poltavchanka is optimal for work in small areas. It covers a distance of 39-40 cm, working at speeds of up to 2 km per hour. The processing speed of the structure is average. Thanks to the belt in the complete set, the potato digger can work with the Neva, the Favorite and other models.
The model does well on moderately severe soils with low humidity. A separate advantage of the device is the ability to adjust the level of the wheels. This allows you to immerse the teeth at different depths. The price of the device depends on the season and the city, the average cost is 10-12 thousand.
Other tips on the walker tractor
