This machine was developed to meet the demand for an efficient flight and tail plucker. In the past there had been a number of machines on the market which had gone some way to meet the requirements, albeit with shortfalls. This machine was developed from these original designs but ensuring the shortfalls were eliminated. The end result is a flight and tail plucker which is:
- Easy to use.
- Requires very little maintenance.
- Suitable for all types and sizes of birds (including catering turkeys).
- All stainless steel construction.
- Extended life rollers.
- Heights adjustable and suitable for static and on-line applications.
In summary, this flight and tail plucker will complement any processing system, whether dry plucking, bowl plucking, or on-line processing. One operator can achieve a throughput of 120 birds per hour with relative ease, with both the primary and secondary flight feathers being removed.
This machine can be supplied in single or 3phase and requires no specific installation or training. It comes complete with starter and 16A plug.
