How well do beet buckets perform “lifting” some rows to transition back onto grass in the spring time? Fairly simple or any better than others. They usually lift some here but grazing everything in situ and hoping to bucket some out near the end this time and save the lifting cost. Cheers

kiwis have beet lifting buckets but it's so dry that i doubt they'd work here.....i've been thinking about a beet bucket with some 'lifting shares' out front....still not sure if you'd get to much dirt though.....the tanco would have the advantage of being able to clean them

Yeah the ones I’ve seen online have a small share that sits ahead of the bucket edge and is only for lifting not washing. We’re generally quite dry/sandy here(famous last words). Take it that’s what’ll work best to keep it clean?

It depends on the beet variety, or more importantly, how far in the ground the root is. Most beet varieties would just snap off at ground level I expect, but low DM varieties like Brigadier & Feldherr would likely scrape up ok. The beet you see being lifted like that in NZ is likely to be those ‘grazing’ varieties.

I can drive through a Brigadier with the quad here and it falls over. I drove (very slowly) across some Geronimo last winter and managed to shake the RAPPA frame off the back of the quad!?

Jamon & Robbos wouldn’t be dissimilar to Geronimo, as far as %age in the ground is concerned. Brigadier might scrape up, but with a lot of soil, unless it’s sandy & a lot drier than it is here just now.

Generally sandy/light loam here and wouldn’t be unusual for it to blow in the spring preceding cultivation’s. Cheers will have to have a look
