Tumble Drumm® Automatic Fish Scaler
disappointed in product
Upon loading 3rd batch of bluegills plastic coupler broke. I had only loaded 25 fish per batch and it took about 30 minutes to scale them. Did not meet my expectations or how it was advertised. Not worth $200 plus shipping, save your money!

Very good product
I bought this scaler not knowing if it would be good for scaling Massachusetts Porgies since they are so big. All the fish were over 10" I only put 4 or 5 in the scaler at a time; as I was afraid I might burn out the motor on my first use. It took a while to scale over 50 fish, but the scaler did a GREAT JOB and there were no flies to deal with (since i was able to do it in the house). I would highly recommend this product.
The next time I use it which will be on white perch, spots or croakers and hopefully it will work as well.

Works good. Could be little faster but saves lot of time and mess. Happy that I bought it.

7 years and still kickin
My girlfriend purchased this for me over 7 years ago and the old war horse is still scraping off the scales like a champ. I have found that if you ice the fish down for a few hours or even over night the scales come off much easier. My cousin, uncle and I travel to Kerr Dam in Va. every year for a week and take this along to scale the hundreds of crappie we catch(nothing under 10 inches and no limit). over the past 7 years this unit has scaled over 6000++ fish and we have never had a problem. Great time saver cause you can filet while a batch is being scaled.
