Potato harvesting is one of the most important operations, which have to be performed precisely, to have good quality potatoes. A two- row tractors operated potato combine harvester having provision for side conveying of the harvested potatoes in the trolley, has been designed and developed. It consists of seven major units viz. main frame, digging system, elevator conveyor, side delivery / discharge conveyor, trash separation and soil sieving system, power
