CONTINUOUS high volume


An Olney Model 4 onion trimmer is a continuous semi-automatic onion trimmer for topping and tailing; a tip and butt cutter for trimming the ends off of onions.


An operator manually places the product in feed fingers which are mounted on an endless chain. These pass through two circular knives that adjust themselves automatically to the different size product, permitting the same amount to be cut off each onion, regardless of size with a minimum of waste. Product may be placed in the feed fingers without regard to which side either the stem or root are facing, as long as they are oriented from side-to-side.

  • 4 inch diameter clamps suitable for 3 inch to 4.5 inch diameter onions.
