Description: Currently harvesting of potato is conducted by using potato digger and then collected by manpower in korea. Total working hours of potato production is 58.0hr/10a and 17.1hr/10a is required for the collection work. Therefore, demand for Gathering type potato harvester is increasing. This study was conducted to investigate digging performance of potato harvester depends on blade angle.
Potato harvester used in experiments consisted of 3 parts; digging part, conveying part and loading part. Digging part was designed to change blade angle by 3 levels(20
