    Item #: KTS
    Availability: In Stock

    The KT-S Electric Fish Scaler is the preferred choice of commercial fisheries all over the world.

    The reason? The cord is thinner (9/16"), lighter and more flexible than any other commercial hand scaler, allowing the operator to work longer without tiring. If you are seeking a scaler with a 220 volt power supply, please contact us in email or by phone.  

    Construction of the KT-S

    The metal scaling head is protected by a metal splash guard, and spins on ball-bearings. All external parts are waterproof. The cable casing has 4 layers, 2 of steel, one of insulation, and a rubber outer cover.

    The motor is housed in an internally grounded stainless steel box with an on/off switch, securely insulated and protected from spray. Because it is internally grounded, the KT-S does not require an external ground. It can be plugged into a wall socket that is grounded or not, and it comes equipped with the proper plug for the destination country.

    Get the Right Spindle

    The KT-S is shipped with the Standard scaling head (spindle) as shown. However, you should also get the spindle that is best for the fish you are scaling. Using the right spindle will greatly increase production.

    KT-S Spindles

    Name   Length   Photo
    Salmon 2.25"/5.72cm Salmon Spindle
    Large Scale Fish (Carp, Barramundi, etc.) 2.25"/5.72cm KT-S Spindle for large scale fish
    Diamond (sharper edges, more aggressive and faster for some fish) 2.25"/5.72cm KT-S Diamond Scale Spindle
    Long Salmon Spindle (twice as long for bigger, flat sided salmon)
    4.5"/11.44 cm
    KTS Long Salmon Spindle
    Long Standard Spindle (twice as long for larger flat fish) 4.5"/11.44 cm KTS Long Standard Spindle

    The KT-S is capable of continuous use in commercial fishing operations.

    This is the most durable, heavy duty electrical fish scaler you can find. The KT-S Electric Fish Scaler is made in Europe.

    In addition to domestic sales, we have shipped the KT-S Electric Fish Scaler to Canada, the Middle East, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries.

    The KT-S is available in 110v or 220v.

    The drive cable can be either 150cm (59") or 200cm (78") long. Consider your work setup when ordering. Take a look at the video for ideal placement.


    Normally, there is very little maintenance required of the KT-S other than lubricating the drive shaft monthly and replacing it when it breaks. All hand fish scalers have a rotating metal drive shaft that wears over time and breaks due to metal fatigue or too much pressure. Normally, a drive shaft will last between 10-12 months, but it can break sooner.

    We recommend having a spare on hand so you do not have down time when it does. When it breaks it is easily replaced. Follow this DRIVE SHAFT and/or CASING REPLACEMENT GUIDE, which will also show you how to replace the casing if necessary.

    To get the most out of the shaft, it should be lubricated when installed and then monthly in use. We recommend this Food Grade Super Lube Grease available from Grainger.


    Note on Voltage:

    We recommend that you order the voltage that is in general use in your country. For countries in North America, it is 110v. For most other countries it is normally 220v. It generally comes with the plug used in your country.
