The Featherman PRO Plucker features 119 ultra soft fingers, delicately removing the feathers from the birds. The 1 HP motor along with direct drive speed reducer offers the perfect power to process roughly 40-50 lbs of poultry (live weight) or approximately (4-5) 5 lbs broiler chickens (dressed weight). The Featherman PRO is primarily for chickens, but it can handle turkeys & gamebirds too (we do offer separate pluckers for those if that’s your specialty!)
A unique feature of our plucker is the feather chute, which keeps the feathers contained in one spot, offering quick easy clean up! The water spray ring gives the birds an even spray of cold, for quick feather release and the waterproof switch ensures operation safety. We offer a foot operated pedal switch, too, for an additional cost.
Featherman Stainless Scalder with Roto-Dunker:
The goal: No pin feathers. Period. This only happens with a perfect scald. The Featherman Scalder holds a constant water temperature to help you achieve that perfect scald. Made of 16 gauge stainless steel with a 100,000 BTU propane burner, temperature control within a five degree range, and sized for four birds at a time (40 gallon).
- 16 Gauge Stainless Steel
- 100,000 BTU Propane Burner
- Temperature control within a five degree range
- 40 Gallon water capacity
- Sized to scald four birds at a time
The Roto-Dunker fits on top of the Featherman scalder for hands-and-back-free scalding. The Roto-Dunker will handle up to 2 – 5 lbs (dressed weight) birds per basket (20 lbs. total). Each basket is turned by a light duty, geared down motor. The consistency of the scald is unparalleled because only half the birds are in the scalder at any time and there is less yo-yoing of water temperature. There are no pinch points as the rotation easily stops in the event of an obstruction, making the Roto-Dunker absolutely safe.
Kill Cone Stand w/Broiler Cones:
Efficient, humane, and easy-cleaning, the all-stainless steel kill cone stand speeds up the processing and eases the handling of birds at the front end of your processing line. “It was the only thing keeping us from 200 birds per hour,” says Joel Salatin.
Includes (8) S/S Broiler Cones. Especially designed no back-out cones fit compactly around a swiveling stand of stainless steel and are easy to clean. Blood caught in the PVC trough below is easily removed and the trough easily cleaned.
Our Featherman Chill tank has a 300-gallon capacity and will chill up to 200 birds. Made of USDA food-grade plastic, the chill tank has a convenient 1″ PVC drain valve for easy clean up.
We offer a 1 year factory warranty on the motor/gearbox, and everything else from us. Everything is assembled in the USA, so we have replacement parts on hand and at the ready, though it’s pretty rare that you would need anything!
