First I would like to thank everyone here for all the advice and direction (especially Gene Bender and Janicholson) for me to get a Farmall A back in the field, I can not describe the happy feeling while on it. Can a plow be used to dig potatoes in the front cultivator area or will the wheels run over them? I have an issue with back drawbar that will make it not possible unless I take it off and do repair welding from previous owners damage.

Find a "Lister" and modify it for 1 row. We planted and dug potatoes for many years using a F-20 with a mounted lister.

Gary1213 I have done what your talking about but I used my cub last year. I had a Lister plow from an orthman bedder and put it in the center. I used my hillers in front of my back tires to roll the potatoes away from the tires. I did run over a few but very small amount. I had to pull all the vines up first because they would ball op on the plow and make a mess. After that my setup did great.

You can put a solid bar across the front then use a lister type shovel to dig. I have disc hillers to hill the potatoes that way the spuds are in the hills so you dont need to dig very deep to harvest. Potatoes need to have a high ridge then digging them is easier. The new planters big growers use form a high ridge when they plant. They work the soil till its fine then the planter forms the ridge 8-10 high. You can look up planting on u-tube to see how they do it.

Gary I have a 46 farmall A with a A-192 plow I have removed the 14" bottom and replaced it with a bottom from a old horse drawn potato plow and it works very well. I had some one post a picher of it 2 years ago on hear but I cant post them with my computer. last year I picked up a 1-1/4 square bar (thanks Gene) and bolted it from one cultivator gang to the outher and mounted a small lister sweep on it and that's how I plow the trench for my potatos. I think that will also work to dig them. and if you start to run over some just move the rear wheels out some. Bob
