Description:
This horse-drawn Victor potato digger came from a farm in the New Durham area and was manufactured by M. Moody & Sons Company, Quebec, around 1920. It has a rounded plate that digs under the potato row and a rotating set of pronged arms that remove potatoes from the earth and leaves them on the ground for pickers to gather up. The implement is a different style compared to other potato diggers and may not have been overly effective depending on how far the potatoes were flung.
