    We're at the point we need to bite the bullet on a proper plucker, my drill based job is nice but not doing it at the volume we'll be at this year. I had seen some positive things about the EZ Plucker here on this forum, but also nice things about Rite Farm products. Rite Farm being substantially cheaper.

    We'll need one of the beefier models whichever we go with, as our niche has mostly been never-frozen Thanksgiving Turkeys, so I need to process a lot of BIG birds in a short time period.

    I was wondering if anyone with experience could comment on these or other models and help guide my purchasing decision.

    Thanks in advance.

    I personally haven't bought it yet, but after researching cost and reviews etc, I am looking at the star plucker from CCONLY. 448+shipping. Click HERE to check them out. I'll be buying one this spring.

    I have been trying to decide as well. For anyone in the upper Midwest with mills fleet farm stores, I did notice they were selling a plucker now. They are not real cheap but possibly avoiding the ridiculous shipping costs of an online purchase would be worth while
