Hand-Cranked Nut Cracker

  • Cracks up to 25kg of nuts per hour

  • Easily adjusted for different types and sizes of nuts

  • Heavy gauge steel construction ensures long life and continued use

  • Oven-baked, powder-coating steel

Easy to use – just fill the hopper, turn the handle and the cracked nuts drop down to a tray. Weighing approximately 7kg, the unit is portable, but benefits from being bolted to a stable surface.

Heavy-duty design uses 3mm crushing plates and is suitable for cracking various nut sizes and strengths, particularly walnuts, hazelnuts and soft-shelled almonds.

Traps and cracks the nut between the revolving crushing plate and the fixed plate. Supplied with spacers held in place on the shaft by a linchpin. By removing or adding the spacers, the distance between the two crushing plates can be adjusted for the size of the nut being cracked. Two thinner spacers are supplied for a finer adjustment, if required. 

Requires minimal maintenance. Apply a small amount of oil occasionally to the shaft.
