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. This cracker is not suitable for macadamias, as the shells are too hard.

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.
