Does any one want to plant potatoes?

I am trying to find a way to reach out to small hobby farmers or people with land that would consider buying a single row planter/seeder for potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic and the like.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, I have already printed flyers, had ads in news papers (including TAS country) and online advertising, yet a guy two farms down from me wasn't aware that I had these machines.

Where am I going wrong?

I began this import venture to help fill a gap in the market where small machinery is very difficult to find, even the odd second hand unit that comes up on the market looks like it has been hit with the Mudgee mail train and then reversed over. The double row planter is anywhere from $25,000 and up, How can someone just starting or dabbling in farming afford this?

Any way I'm getting off topic, If anyone has an idea (even crazy ideas are welcome) to get word out that I have these planters I would be very grateful.
