    Default Shelled Corn Cracker

    Anyone know of a source for a shelled corn cracker? I am looking for a small one that would be hand fed and preferably electric. I am familiar with the high volume ones used when filling a silo or feed truck but I am interested in a small scale one. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks Charlz. I found similar ones searching around. All of them seem to be in that price range which I think is pretty steep. Think I will throw some in the blender and see what I get.

    I bought an Automatic LA100 rollermill at a farm sale about 15 years ago for $100. I took the electric motor off and rigged it on my grinder-mixer over the supplement hopper to roll roasted soybeans. As farms get bigger, I would think there would be more of these units going on the auctioneer's blocks. They are sized to roll shelled corn coming out of sealed silos such as Harvestores.

    I've used both a cracker on a silo blower and a cracker on the coveyors before it goes into the feed truck. When I was a kid my dad ran a portable feed mill that had various size screens to control how coarse the finished product was. I am thinking of something small scale that could do a bushel or so at a time. A hand crank one would work but the manufacturers are sure pround of the new ones I found.
