Company has introduced the Fresh Husker — a small piece of equipment ideal for low capacity processing of corn and other vegetables and fruit. The Fresh Husker is designed to gently and efficiently remove husks, providing ears ready for fresh market or fresh frozen sale, according to Lund. It has the capacity of 20 to 30 ears per minute, depending on variety and corn conditions. Husking efficiency is approximately 75 percent in ideal conditions, with shanks removed. The Fresh Husker can be operated by one person, and can easily be transported. Lockable casters keep the 650-pound husker secure during use. Along with husking corn, the Fresh Husker removes stems and debris from fruit such as citrus and apples, and vines. It also can remove tops and debris from beets, carrots, onions, potatoes and radishes.
