The Ridgepress 6×30/40 is a British built high quality, high output machine designed specifically to reduce the amount of greening of the potato tuber, both before and after desiccation where sunlight can penetrate cracks that can form around the tops of the rows.
The individually sprung uniquely designed flat diablos will ensure that you receive optimum pressure on each row, which when then placed upon the row will either re-seal the crack or allow fine soil to fall through the crack covering the exposed crop (as shown below).
For extra convenience each diablo is fitted with a filler plug to add water to achieve even greater pressure if needed.
Row widths are fully adjustable between 30” to 40” and in any combination of rows for greater flexibility and more accurate pressing.
Pressure on each diablo can be adjusted via a pre-loaded spring above each unit.
We now offer a further option of having 3 extra diablos/ wheels; 1 of which runs between each pair of rollers. This then enables 3 full beds to be pressed and resealed as well as 6 rows.
