yeah. that's crazy money. brand new stainless from China are $10,000.

 

that thing looks like it runs by steam engine.

 

how long has that been sitting in the elements?

 

i'd have to call my pig scald tank and dehairing guy, but i'd start at $500.

Seems like a lot of money. I’m kinda thinking he meant $500.... not $5,000. I would have to see it in action. I have butchered a lot of pigs in my lifetime and to have one go from pen to cooler in 25 minutes... that’s pretty impressive. Might be worth $5,000 if that’s the case.

I have never seen anything like this which is why I shared it

Looks old school however based on the vintage tecumseh gas tank I can see

Must be used some how for heating the water

The water is heated by oil fire and the bristle removers are controlled by an electric motor. Worth its weight in gold if it works like they are supposed to. The last number of years... we are skinning them. Much easier than scalding.

Ahh so the old tecumseh gas tank is just used to supply an oil burner not a gas engine. Thanks for the clarification

The only pigs we scald are whole BBQ pigs.

 Scalded pigs are worth more . Customer has to pay for the skin and fat  so money to be made.

So what would it be worth. I cannot see a huge market for it is there

 Does it look like  a factory set up. Is there such a thing

i like my pork bellies to come with the skin on but it makes sense you'd only scald the ones you're selling for a pig roast.
