Our Prime HM-2 Chicken Halving Machine automatically and effectively separates the front half from the saddle. Operating at speeds exceeding 180 BPM, the HM-2 can be adjusted to remove more rib bones or saddle to maximize leg quarter yield. The Halving Machine can be adjusted to completely cut front halves from the saddle or leave the front half hanging by the back skin, to be removed by the back skin cutter to maximize skin and fat yield.
