    Middle Buster/Potato Plow

    Curious if anyone uses or has used a middle buster plow on a cub for digging potatoes? I plant around 100 pounds or so each year. I hill them by hand. Usually dig them up by hand as well. Just thought a middle buster might make it easier.

    They are pricey though! Wow, 200 bucks give or take online!
    Id probably make an a frame then add the sweep.

    Hey Rich. I do not own, or have ever used the middle buster plow, but it should work well for planting. For hilling, I think I would build a disk hiller. I have used a moldboard plow for digging up potatoes, which actually worked well. Make sure you get it in deep enough, but it flipped the plant and spuds right up and laid them on top. Really worked good.

    Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

    I've got a lot of Cubs in the barn....but I have more implements/attachments!

      I’m thinking of building a toolbar style hiller. Then I could adjust the discs. Also then I could add the middle buster to the toolbar, along with cultivator shanks. I may try the moldboard plow this year to dig them up, that’s a good idea.
