Add this configurable machine to your potato receiving line to remove 80% of vines before processing. Ensure you’re getting the most debris-free raw product possible before processing.

Start Your Configuration


Eliminate Plugs & Costly Downtime

The industrial Vine Remover machine uses a series of custom configured rolls to separate vines from product flow on the receiving line. Less vines equal less pump plugs, less tear downs, less restarts, less downtime.

Trusted Performance

At 100,000 pounds per hour, remove 80% of vines that plug receiving and transferring equipment, resulting in costly downtime and cumbersome fixes.

Flexible Design

We help you determine how best to implement, from line layout options to tandem models. Choose from a range of options, from takeaway solutions and more.

Maintenance Friendly

Designed for easy access panels and cover construction, simple pitch adjustments, and one motor operation.

"We have a Vanmark Hydrolift Destoner as well as a competitor’s vertical auger. Vanmark’s runs like a dream. Its additional design features significantly help maintain product flow and uptime.”
