Here are opinions on the forums about the Catmann’s operation:
A quality machine that can do a great job with the soil. I use the Katman to till potatoes. The hydraulic system handles potato buildup and backhoe work with no problems. I put the potatoes in and off I go. History. There are problems when working with the KUHN. It doesn’t stick to the surface and doesn’t rotate, but not critical.
