Modern and reliable machinery and innovative machine technologies for potato production are key factors in improving potato production efficiency. The current conditions of potato production in Russia show that medium-sized complexes are the most popular and widespread today. A number of Russian enterprises together with foreign partners are trying to revive the production of potato equipment in our country of medium size at a new level. The article presents new modern models of machines universal mounted cultivator-comb-forming cultivator KGP-4; potato-planting machine CR450M with the possibility of combining a number of technological operations (soil preparation, planting, combing, spraying, local application of granular fertilizers and protection against soil erosion); original combine Spirit 5200 bunker type; scheduled for mass production without a bin harvester (digger- loader) AVR Lynx.

Keywords: potato production, machine technologies, complexes of machines, cultivator, models of new machines, potato-planting machines, combines, control management, quality of work.
