Potato Harvest Aroostook County (Northern Maine)style! This particular operation is picking up 20 rows at a time or around 2200 barrels per hour. One barrel weighs 180 lbs. That's 396,000 lbs of tators a hour.

so if you figure the farmer probably get .50/lb for the taters, they would need to farm 10hrs worth to cover the costs of all that hardware they are using to harvest :thumbsup: Those green things aren't cheap :laugh:
