Wyma Hedgehog Top Remover

The Wyma Hedgehog Top Remover removes carrot tops, loose dirt, and leaves, etc from produce flow. Produce and debris are fed onto the upwardly rotating belt.

Carrots slide down the belt while the belt pintles elevate carrot tops and debris to a waste chute. Angle can be adjusted to suit your conditions.


  • Extended waste chute height for maximum waste containment
  • Easy belt tension adjustment
  • Adjustable operation angle to suit different produce types
  • Compact, rugged design
