We have what is referred to as the "Multi-Purpose Digger".  The brand
name escapes me now, but I do know they are manufactured in Canada.  We
purchased ours through Ag Resource Inc. in Detroit Lakes, MN.  It works
well for us for potatoes out of 3' wide raised beds.  This would
probably work well for onions and beets as well, but haven't tried it
for that yet.
