With variable potato harvest, the transfer conveyors don’t always run at maximum efficiency, instead the speed is set to maximum yields to prevent clogging but can increase the rate of damage to the crop.

This can lead to reduced mechanical damage to the potatoes and alleviate the operator from manually varying the conveyor speed.
