Sausage fillers are an essential feature of any butcher shop or smallgoods manufacturer. When it comes to picking an hydraulic filler, ease of operation and the construction of the machine are most important.
Good hydraulic fillers have a solid base that counteracts any possibility of tipping (because of their high centre of gravity). Fillers should be at a relatively ergonomic height for operator health, and knee-lever operation is best. You can dent a shoddily-built machine, and dents can affect the filling process – a robust unit with a thick wall is ideal.
