Bingham makes an excellent job of plucking all types of bird
from the smallest game birds, hens, chickens, and ducks etc.
to geese and turkeys. The image below shows the machine fitted
with an optional gantry which facilitates the handling of
heavier birds up to 45 lbs.
finish of the plucked bird compares with that obtained by wet
plucking. No special skill is required. The suction developed
at the plucking head draws the feathers into a set of rotating
plates, where they are gripped and pulled from the body. They
are then channelled through a suction unit and into a
collection sack to await disposal. The grip on the feathers
can be adjusted to obtain optimum plucking times for different
species of bird.
plucking times are as follows:
= 30 secs
& Partridge = 60 secs
= 1.5 mins
= 3.5 mins
= 8-10 mins
= 5-8 mins according to size.
machine is immediately ready for use at any time, and in the
case of the single phase version, can be operated from any
standard 13 amp socket. Provided that the ‘Bingham’ is
maintained properly and lubricated at the proper intervals
productivity is maximised, outlay minimised, and long reliable
machine life can be obtained.
guard is available, if required, to provide total security
against accidental damage to the birds skin. This allows
chickens, turkeys and other birds, where the condition of the
birds’ skin is paramount, to be confidently prepared.
