The easily removes the grain from whole, dry ears of corn. The production rate is 10-15 bushels of grain per hour (about 10 seconds per ear). It handles all sizes and shapes of corn ears and features ball bearings for long life and smooth turning. High strength ductile iron is used, and it has a tough and handsome powder coat finish. Besides shelling corn, the Maximizer™ hulls walnuts too. The sheller ejects whole bare cobs to the side, so they don't drop into the shelled grain. The 10" diameter crank wheel includes a pulley groove to accept a v-belt for powered operation. Powering by any means other than the hand crank is at the owner’s discretion, and full responsibility for safety, including necessary power drive shielding, rests exclusively with the user. Cleats clamp the sheller onto a vertical board, or you can bolt it on directly with provided holes. One popular configuration is to clamp the sheller onto the side of a box without a bottom, which is then set inside a tote box or bin. When you're finished the box and sheller can be lifted out, leaving you a tote full of grain. Click the link below for more info.
