If you’re in the farming industry or an abattoir, this is the ultimate poultry plucker bundle! This awesome bundle comes with KuKoo’s 70L poultry scalder & 30cm poultry plucker.
The poultry scalder can save you so much time and makes the plucking process even easier! By opening the pores, you can pluck birds in seconds and minimise the effort this step takes.
The poultry scalder is ideal for use before plucking, it makes the whole feather removal process quick & efficient. Made from stainless steel this machine scalds chicken, duck, goose or turkey in approximately 30 seconds!
The plucker is a tub style mechanical poultry plucker with a stainless steel barrel which is lined with yellow rubber fingers, which rub against the poultry as the base of the barrel spins around and remove the feathers fast.
Immerse the birds into the scalding machine for approximately 30 seconds (larger birds may need more time than this). While immersed, agitate the bird to ensure the water is reaching the skin under the feathers.
After immersing, pluck one of the bird’s wing feathers by hand to check the scald. If there is no resistance when plucking, the bird is sufficiently scalded and should now be plucked.

As the machine processes your poultry, you will need to use a hose pipe to wash away the feathers from the inside of the barrel and birds, this will ensure the machine continues to pluck. Using water with electrical appliances can be dangerous so with this machine we advise the use of an RCD adaptor (not provided). In the event of a broken wire this will instantly cut off the electricity supply to the poultry plucker to prevent shocks.
