I'm looking for a heavy duty burley making machine, it's gotta be a fairly high capacity as we'll be putting down large batches a few times a year when we clean out the bait freezer or when we have lots of alberts, mullet or KY.  The throat needs to be fairly wide as I would like to feed whole or split lenghtwise fish, don't mind beheading but don't want to fillet 100's of fish in a session plus dont want to waste the frames.

As I see it my options are.....
1) Garden mulcher
2) Insinkerator
3) Big F### off mincer

And it can't be too expensive as Xmas and the summer fishing season are approaching.  So guys what are you using and what are your suggestions?

Cheers
Harry

4" drop feed wood chipper from hire pool for half a day. it never jams up and even when blunt (frozen fish does that) it still works a treat.

Garden mulcher. Used mine when my bait freezer broke and all my bait srarted to defrost. It's fast and has a good size opening so you can stick a smaller whole fish in or half a large one. Found the insinkerator slower and it also made a very fine burley almost like a paste

Cheers for the replies so far, sounds like a woodchipper or mulcher is the go, any recommendations on brand and model?
Raumatibeach - that looks mean, i guess you didn't get it from bunnings Big smile

I think I've seen the solution in the form of an electric mulcher, just gunna need to mod it a bit to take whole fish.

bludog - i like your thinking but I wouldn't be too popular with the whanau, besides the bloody cat would be in my way - at least until I ran it over Big smile

The results are in and they're all good........

Out 4 T put me on to the Talon Trisecta garden mulcher, big ups mate, with 2200w of fish munching power it really did the job.  It did need a wee mod as the standard top is designed to keep fingers away from the blades.  I used a road cone I found by the side of the road and chopped the top and bottom off to accomodate whole fish - just watch ya fingers!!!!!

It will handle decent sized whole ky and skippies but it did occasionally jam up.  Filleting and chopping up the frames with an axe was faster, no worries with skin, scales or whole heads, just feed them thru.  And the texture/consistancy of the berley is perfect with just one pass.

First up take all your old bait.....



Chop the bigger  stuff in to pieces......



Feed thru the mulcher........



Anh hey presto, burley.......



The first go was a bit messy but it now takes about 1hour to make 100kg of burley, thats from getting everything out of the garage to cleaned up and burley in plastic buckets in the freezer.  The talon is easy to clean too, just remove the road cone and yellow tube and hose out and scrub the blades and outlet chute.

Glad it worked out. Like the mod. I did a mod to mine I put a platform on top of the legs so a bucket can sit square under the chute and not on the angle. My bucket kept on falling over and made a mess

Hi Out 4 T, we now use a 30l square plastic box that fits nicely under the chute.  Gunna get another roadcone and put it inverted into the existing one to form a funnel and stop the odd splat from flying out.
