Doede Koops from the Netherlands recently purchased a potato digger made by Alexander Jack and Sons from Maybole and would like to know more about this machine. When was it build and what modifications may have been made to the one in the picture? The front of the digger may not be the original design. He believes there may also be some parts missing.

If any of our site visitors can assist Mr Koops he would be most gratitude. Please contact him at

An 1914 advertisement from Alex Jack & Sons, LTD includes an illustration of a potato digger but the image is very small. See this page.
