    We got the plan for a Whizbang pucker and made our own. It cost us about $300.00 to make it, however it works great. We purchased the pulley and turning plate from the Whizbang site and a new motor. If you are good finding used items then your price can go down a lot. The plucking fingers are not cheap either but we are into our third year of using the plucker and the fingers still look new and have not had to replace any. We believe that it was money well spent. Hope this helps.

    Forgot to mention that it works great in getting the feathers off the birds in about 30 seconds. They come out looking like the chickens you see in the grocery store.
