The new TL-8530-JT single row trailed potato harvester has no equal in South Africa. It was designed and developed in South Africa for South African conditions.


  • It boasts a short digging web that has a greater capacity, and is capable of handling larger volumes (up to 2 hectares per day), and due to this valuable time is saved which translates into greater profits.
  • The hydraulicly steerable wheels allow for a smaller turning circle which helps with those awkward tight turns at the end of the field.
  • The hydraulicly adjustable drawbar ensures that precise tracking between the tractor and harvester can be achieved.
  • The proven Q-drive system limits abrasion to a minimum, which contributes toward the low maintenance cost of the TL-8530-JT.

The TURNER TL-8530-JT is backed by a complete spares service.
