How It Works


The system's gizzard opening blade will cut gizzards from above, which will help on blade life and cleaning out the gizzards after the gizzard has been split. The water pump is mechanical, not electric, and is powered by the machine running. When the machine stops, the water pressure will drop. This should help with water waste considerably.

In addition, the peeler rollers have been lengthened 30% for more dwell time on the rollers. The Gizzard Harvester is capable of processing 175 gizzards per minute.
