    Replacing difficult-to-recruit human labour currently needed to clean up the product stream going into storage, the Field Potato Sorter is compact and available in various widths, to suit typical sorting capacity requirements of up to 80,000 kgs/hr. It is also robust, weather-proof and easy for farm workers to operate.

    The sorter is designed to fit existing grading equipment or be used as a standalone unit and can operate on harvested potato crop before and after storage. The system also provides online potato size data for logging, plus sorter operating information.

    By installing this machine, potato processing and harvesting companies will be able to significantly reduce labour and storage costs, improve the product quality and increase yield.
