I am looking for a owners manual for a 1 Row PTO Dahlman Potato Digger...This digger loads the potato on truck or trailer, also looking for any information from anyone has used one of these. Also any information about the Dahlmen Bros. Company that made these in Braham, MN like how long they were in business etc.
Thanks, Kevin

Premier Products now makes some of the best bungie straps you can get at any price. I'm still using some fully stretched during freezing temps to hold on my tractor chains. Same ones now over 30 years old. When I first mounted the chains in 1982, most of the straps were new Japan made bungies but found by Jan-Feb of the first winter most of the imports were broken or rotten.
I live about 5 miles from Braham and stopped last summer to pick up a couple dozen more, asked them if the rubber is still the same, they said that the formula has not been changed.
I told them about my good experiance with the straps, they said that is why they haven't changed the formula even though the bungies cost more to make.

I grew up in Braham Mn, live about 15 mi. from there now. The Dalhman corp is still in business but doesn't make potato equipment anymore. They put rubber coatings on things like the chain parts for potato diggers and such. They quit building diggers and planters in the mid 70's I think. Originally they were an oliver green color, then green and white and in the end I think they had gone to blue and white.

I remember as a little boy they came to our farm on a number of occasions to take measurements off our 830 case so they could make a mounted digger for them. They also came to our farm to test a rock picker they were developing, but as far as I know none of those were ever sold. I remember that it really did a job of getting the rocks tho.

Here is a pick from the Rollog thrashing show of a digger mounted on a case 830 like I was talking about.

OOPS, I was wrong. It's no longer Dahlman's it Premier products in one of the same buildings. Most of the buildings are gone now. Some of the Dahlman's still live in Braham and you can google them, they may be able to help you.
