Urschel slicer, model GKS, video demo, Y2110

Refurbished URSCHEL Model GKS SLICER,
for flat or crinkle slice cuts...

Y2110 Urschel model GKS SLICER video demo
from Alard Equipment Corporation.

A simple, yet rugged, high-speed centrifugal slicer manufacturer recommended for cutting a wide variety of produce including beets, potatoes, carrots, cabbage, lettuce, eggplant, cucumbers, pickles, cranberries, apples, pears, strawberries, tomatoes, and peaches. Engineered for continuous tons-per-hour industrial-scale production, in a simple design for easy clean-up & maintenance. Able to slice flat strip cuts as well as crinkle strip cuts.

SPECIFICATIONS, per manufacturer literature:

  • Slice thickness easily (knob) adjustable for slice thicknesses from 1/16 inch (1.6mm) up to 5/8 inch (16mm).

  • Accepts product input up to 5.5 inches (140mm) in any dimension. Larger products must be precut. Large heads of cabbage, for example, must be quartered before slicing.

  • The GKS SLICER can cut either flat or crinkle slices.

  • Krinkle cuts made with the Model GKS will have 3 1/3 crinkles to the inch, with a depth of .070 inch (1.8mm).

  • Throughput capacity depends on slice thickness and density, so for example, root crop vegetables are rated for 12,000 lbs per hour on for ¼ inch slices, while capacity on ¾ inch slices will be 36,000 pounds per hour. On products which are lighter than root vegetables, the capacity will be lower in accordance with the density of the products.

  • At reduced capacities, this slicer will make slab cuts / sandwich cuts, slicing the full length of oblong products such as potatoes, carrots, and pickles, but the products must not be longer than 5 inches.

  • This slicer will not cross-cut elongated products, the Urschel Model OV, which we also have in stock as of this writing, is used for crosscut slicing. Call 315-589-4511 to discuss your particular industrial food process slicing machine specification.

  • Some products may need to be frozen or tempered for firmness to be succesfully cut with this machine. Call 315-589-4511 to discuss your particular industrial food process cutting machine application.


  • Product is fed thru a hopper into a rotating impeller, for high-capacity continuous production.

  • Centrifugal force holds product against inside of slice case as impeller blades carry product past slicing knife.

  • Distance between adjustable case gate and slicing knife determines slice thickness.

  • Slicing case has a corrugated inner surface capable of producing krinkle-cut slices.


  • Food grade sanitary stainless steel product contacts and stainless steel frame.

  • Stainless steel 7 inch opening slice shell.

  • This cutting machine is for industrial food processing applications, with capacity for 3,000 to 36,000 lbs per hour depending on product and cut size.

  • 2HP 208/230/460 volt 3 phase drive.

As of this writing, this reconditioned Urschel slicer is in stock at ALARD, in EXCELLENT operational, mechanical, electrical & cosmetic condition, available for immediate shipment.
