A late friend, who I have previously posted about, ran a line of similar but larger machines for his peeling business. They worked very well, but he "finished" the spuds by hand. He could have run the machines longer, but he raised his yield by cutting out eyes by hand. You can run the machine too long and end up with golf ball size potatoes. His, as I recall, may have been 220v . Maybe you can find a used one??
