Peelers/Washers/Scrubbers

Lyco Mfg. has 35 years experience making Washers, Peelers and Scrubbers for vegetables such as potatoes, beets, carrots, onions, cucumbers, pickles and apples. Lyco’s first machine was The War Horse, with hydraulic drives which had roll speeds between 3 and 400 RPM. Next, we developed the Raging Bull, with the first all-electric drives and roll speeds of 800-1,000 PM, doing the work of several smaller machines. Later, we built electric drive machines running slower speeds called Bull Jr. We have sold over 350 of these machines to canners, potato chip processors and french fry operations. Many machines made in the early 1980s are still in operation.

Lyco unique designs have full length augers which control product all the way through the machine. This helps eliminate flat spots and under / over peeling, achieving higher recovery than competitor equipment. Our rolls abrasive or brush contain bearings only at the discharge end, (except for the high speed Raging Bull machine which has bearings at both ends.)

The key to longevity and low maintenance in all of our models is our uniquely simple, rugged and well-designed drive trains for each roll. Fewer replacement parts THAN ANY COMPETITOR means greater equipment reliability and lower parts usage. Our Raging Bull and Bull Jr. electric designs have two-way flip top covers which raise the auger out of the machine for ease of cleaning, maintenance and roll change-out.
