Peanut Digger – Conveyor Speed Calculator.

As impacted S.C. and N.C. farmland dries out from Hurricane Florence, some peanut growers are faced with the challenge of digging peanuts with weakened pegs due to over-maturity and other factors.

We’ve provided the calculator at the link below to help you set your conveyor speed.
