Wyma Horizontal Soil Remover

Wyma's Horizontal Soil Remover removes dirt, roots, and other debris from potatoes. Potatoes and debris are fed onto a belt with rubber pintles. Potatoes are carried forward and directed to the outfeed chute by the powered sweep roller.

Debris falls through the pintles to the base of the belt and is carried under the sweep roller to the waste chute at the end of the machine.

You can adjust the gap between the powered sweep roller and the belt to control the size of the debris that will be removed from produce flow.

The powered sweep roller has a weight balancing mechanism to prevent the roller from applying too much pressure on the belt. This prevents debris from getting lodged in the belt.


  • High-quality pintle belt, great for collecting debris
  • Easy-to-adjust sweep roller height
  • Easy tension adjustment
  • Very low maintenance slat bed
  • Compact, rugged design
