  6. McCormick Tractor Potato planter No.3 2-row, fully automatic, for tractor number of copies and construction period unknown, France and Germany Information The 2-row potato planter No.3 was pulled by a tractor. However, the drive did not take place via the pto shaft, but via the wheels of the planting machine. This principle was the same as that of the one rider pulled by the horse. These potato growers were built by Harvester in both France and Germany. The machine was equipped with two correctors. The corrector on the McCormick potato planter was the rotating disk on top of the machine. The seed potatoes were in the large container and were brought up one by one by means of a chain with spoons. At the top, the seed potato fell down on the other side and in this way all the seed potatoes came into the ground at a regular distance from each other. The corrector mechanism made sure that once there was no seed potato on a spoon, a seed potato would nevertheless fall into the ground. A sensor or tumbler was used to check whether a seed potato came up. If this was not the case, the mechanism came into effect. The operation of the planting machine was done by a second person who rode on the machine. This set the height and also ensured that the two corrector discs remained filled with seed potatoes. The machine was supplied on iron wheels. The price in 1956 was NLG 1395. For this amount, two sets of trays were supplied, interchangeable wheels 18 and 22 teeth, with chain drive wheel, 18 ”discs, with tractor hitch (without front wagon) and 4-arm corrector. The distance between the rows was adjustable with jumps of 5 cm, of 55 - 80 cm. The leg distance obtained with the aforementioned comb wheels was 28 and 35 cm. A single horse-drawn rider was also offered.
