Potato Digger

Anyone have an idea as to what model or year this deere potato digger is. It popped up here local and wanted to get a little information before going to take a look at it. Thanks

It looks similar to the model 30, which was made in the late '50s, plus or minus how much I don't know. The main difference I see from the 30 is the rectangular power shaft shield, which makes it look newer. I suppose it could have been a running change, but that is speculation and unlikely.

Find out if it has a model and serial number tag.
If it does, Deere can tell you the year I would think!

Not that it matters, and surely they could have been changed, but if the decals are original or same style as original, then that style with the leaping deer was 1968 to 2000

A Deere potato digger is not something I get to see.

Would love to run one though
