Saddle Cutter 1The Foodmate Saddle Cutter is the optimal machine to separate leg quarters. The guiding system is designed to always give an accurate center split.

The chicken which is hanging on the Foodmate Cut-Up Line is mounted parallel to the moving direction of the machine, with the breast in the direction of the circular blade(s) of the Saddle Cutter. Because of the movement of the cut-up line and the help of the rails, the correct cut is realized. It can be mounted on new Foodmate lines or added to existing lines.
