Onion Top Tailer

Onion Top Tailer

The Nicholson 'Top Tailer' has been developed to meet the exacting demands of retail outlets requiring high quality display crops without damage. By using a unique twisted stainless steel shaft rotating against smooth faced, spring- loaded polypropylene rollers, the cut is made without pressure on the neck. The spirals run crossways to the crop flow and have right and left twists to ensure rotational movement of the onions. This continuous smooth flow without oscillation or vibration minimises crop damage. The Top Tailers can be used on onions straight from store or as finishing machine before packing.

The machine will top and tail down to 30mm, so pre-grading is not necessary. A 1.2m infeed conveyor is supplied as standard, longer options are available. To maintain absolute control across
a wide range of conditions and flow, the bed is split into separate drives with variable speed to each set of rollers. Rams are fitted to vary the pitch of the bed at the discharge end. Standard machines come complete with infeed conveyor and outfeed chute, hydraulic powerpack and standard legs.
