Kenkel Nut Cracker

The Kenkel is capable of cracking black walnuts but it needs to be well anchored to a wall stud or table top for instance to get the support needed. It is our favorite for cracking the medium hard nuts like heartnut and shagbark hickory. Of course it works well on the thin shelled nuts too. Simple in design, this nutcracker adjusts for all nut sizes with a simple top screw. It works on lever action with a 21 inch handle. Base is not provided.

The Drill Nut Cracker

This is our basic hand crank or drill cracker. It is easily converted from a hand crank machine to a drill cracker. It is the best machine of its type on the market. It is suited for cracking thin shelled nuts like hazelnuts, almonds, and Persian walnuts. It will work best if the nuts are sized first but this is not necessary. It is easily adjusted by moving the plate in or out against the cracking roller. Try a few nuts and adjust as needed to get the best crackout. Electric drill is not included.

Bag the cracked product and let the happy customers pick out the nut meats. Or magically separate the shells from the nut meats with our separator shown below. It comes with an adapter that simply plugs into a regular 110V electrical outlet.

The Nut Separator Image
The Nut Separator

The Separator

The separator will blow out the shell on one side and let the clean nut meats drop out on the other side. It will work well with all the nuts that have relatively thin shells including hazelnuts, Persian walnuts, acorns, and pecans. Thick shelled nuts like black walnut, butternut and hickory do not separate easily since the shell pieces are heavy so air separation will not work. It plugs in to a normal 110V outlet with the adapter provided.

The Patriot 600 Nut Cracker Image
The Patriot 600 Nut Cracker

The ‘Patriot 600’ is designed for commercial and semi commercial production. It is suitable for cracking any hard shelled nut including black walnuts, shellbark hickory nuts, and butternuts.  No need to size the nuts before cracking. As the nuts drop in the narrowing steel hard faced cone shaped chamber, the inner rotating cone spins the nut and shatters it, releasing large meat pieces. This heavily built 353 pound (163 Kg) machine can crack 600 pounds of black walnuts per hour. The steel surfaces are coated with a baked on food grade finish. The sealed 1 hp gear reduction motor operates on regular 110 power supply. Mounted on 4 heavy duty casters, it can be easily moved. Other than 3 bearings that require occasional greasing, the machine is maintenance free for long term use.

The 'Adjustable Patriot 600' is similar to the Patriot 600 but the cone spacing can be adjusted  from 1/8 inch to 1 1/2 inch spacing to crack various size nuts from black walnuts to smaller nuts like hazelnuts.
