The first AirSep Harvester.


Matthew Porter approached us in 2010 to increase the quality and reduce the bruising of the potatoes on his farm in the fertile but rocky soil of Maine. After a year of developing, our engineers came up with a new technology, called AirSep, and built a harvester around it.
This was the beginning of a success story. Click here to see the full story.

Crop Cart

Smaller version with 20 ton capacity.

New for 2016 is the model 4820 Crop Cart which is a smaller version of the 700 sack model 4835 Crop Cart. With a capacity of 400 sacks the machine is more maneuverable in close quarters and the available telescoping boom for transport reduces the width of the machine to under 10ft. The tandem axle reduces soil compaction and provides stability and confidence for the operator. The ability to handle multiple crops like its big brother increases the machines value as it is used year round. Those changes make this machine ready to be used on European streets as well.

Bulk Bed

New 4300 model with enhanced features.

Spudnik Equipment Company is proud to introduce the new 4300 model Bulk Bed, as the industry leader for over three decades, the 4300 Bulk Bed offers a new look and enhanced features. The need to ship beds economically around the country and across the world influenced the modular boltable V design. The V design makes cleaning the bed easier and providing easier access for maintenance. Replacing damaged structural components is easily accomplished with the boltable design. The sloped floors are available in stainless steel or painted mild steel and are also replaceable. The bed uses the same proven double drive belt system used on the 4400 and 4200 models. The belt discharge is angled to provide a gradual transition of product into the receiving equipment. The control system has been redesigned for simpler operation and there is an available remote control to open and close the end and side doors.

True Flow Technology

As an alternative to the Even Flow Bin, the Equalizer provides a consistent first in - first out flow of product with True Flow Technology to the down line machines. The design allows the potatoes to flow through the Equalizer quickly, reducing heat build up and bruising, resulting in a steady product flow for the AirSep Eliminator.

True Flow Technology prevents overloading the next machine in line due to the face of the pile sliding down. A combination of sensors coupled with a second discharge belt "equalizes" product flow and eliminates the overloading problem that is common in Surge Tanks.

Sugar Beet Technology

12 Row Defoliator and Harvester

At the company Customer Appreciation Night in January 2015, Spudnik officially presented its new sugar beet technology: a 12-row fold-able defoliator and a 12-row trailed harvester.

Leveraging almost 60 years of experience in the potato industry, Spudnik entered the world of sugar beet equipment. In 2013, the first Spudnik sugar beet harvester was prototyped in the field. Since then, working closely with a few customers, Spudnik has developed an exceptional harvesting machine with many unique features.



Zero tolerance for foreign material

Introducing revolutionary air separation technology for gently removing foreign material. Spudnik AirSep technology, available on stationary Eliminators and 2 or 3 row Harvesters, separates rocks, clods, vines, grass, and corn trash with minimal product bruise and labor. It is more gentle than mechanical separation methods and functions in all weather conditions.

In 2013, Spudnik's AirSep technology received the gold medal for innovation at Agritechnica in Germany. After incorporating years of feedback from our customers, Spudnik's AirSep technology is far ahead of all other separation units on the market.
