This plucker is matched to work in conjunction with the 6 Bird Stunner/Bleeder combination and the 75L Scalding tank. Low power requirement is the main feature of this plucker. It is possible to use the Plucker, Scalder and Stunner/Bleeder, including refrigeration with only the power from a small diesel or petrol driven generator about 5 kVA, where mains power is not available.
The main frame is made from a heavy gauge mild steel completely welded and hot-dip galvanized thus offering complete rust protection. The feather bin and canopy are removable to facilitate thorough cleaning. The bin can hold the feathers of about 200 birds. The plucker is well balanced and free standing. A standard pluck finger is used, i.e. about 80 mm long that pulls into a hole of 19 mm. Soft to medium hardness (45 to 55 degrees shore), plucking fingers are preferred.
