Side Puller

Maximum yield and better carcass presentation

  • Reduction in the number of operators
  • Better quality and presentation of the carcass
  • Reduction in the rate of damage to the flank steak (matambre)
  • Less cuts and perforations in the leather
  • Higher yield; meat and fat remains in the carcass


During the process of cattle skinning, it is necessary to remove the leather located in the region of the ribs, without removing the flank steak and fat from the carcass during the process. Side Puller is able to perform this operation efficiently, maintaining a good quality of the skinned carcass. It offers a capacity of up to 360 cattle/hour. 

The process performed by Side Puller significantly reduces the required number of operators and the amount of meat pulled out from the carcass together with the leather. The equipment is in accordance with all current safety standards. It has guardrails to prevent the access of unauthorized people, and its activation is performed bimanually, for greater safety of operators. 


  • Capacity of up to 360 cattle/hour
  • Adjustable stroke for each carcass size
  • Automatic speed adjustment according to the line
  • Guardrails prevent access to restricted areas
  • Self-supporting structure ensures fast installation
  • Bimanual triggering for greater safety
  • Linear movement system together with the spool, detached of the line speed
