Vibrated sieving shares for potato harvesting

, : Vibrated sieving shares for potato harvesting. Canadian Agricultural Engineering 28(2): 91-96

The design and performance of several vibrating share models are presented and the problems with each model are discussed. The shares were assembled on a prototype potato harvester for evaluation. Each model successfully enhanced soil sieving but created problems with soil flow. The last vibrating share model built was the most complex and was the final attempt to improve soil flow. The draft force and soil sieving capability of this model was compared to that of a plain share to evaluate the share performance. The vibrating share model performance was also compared to that of the oscillating share by evaluating the potato damage level of each.
