      How does the VACS-8 work?
      The air chamber first cleans the debris by flowing the load over a full-width cleaning table to remove excess dirt, vines and corn stalks.

      The remaining contents moves into the high-flow air chamber that efficiently elevates the potatoes into a high stream of air, lifting them onto the discharge conveyer while allowing the stones to continue through, removing them from your potatoes.
