KT-S Fish Scaler

The KT-S Fish Scaler is considerably different from the other 3. It has a thinner, lighter, more flexible casing and shaft than the others. As a result, it is easier and less tiring to use. For these reasons, many users prefer the KT-S. We sell them all over the world.

Northrock and Food Machinery of America (FMA)  Electric Fish Scalers are now the same machine with different names. These scalers are rather heavy and stiff in comparison to the KT-S scaler, but are favored by some companies with big, strong operators.

The Haskins-Strand (HS)  and pre-2017 FMA are the original models and use the same parts. 

The HS and pre-2017 FMA have been discontinued. 

Parts are available to convert your HS or older FMA machine to a Northrock. See discussion under Haskins-Strand. 

All hand fish scalers have a rotating metal drive shaft that should be lubricated when installed and monthly in use. We recommend this Food Grade Super Lube Grease available through Grainger.
