Processing of fried potatoes is inseparable from the cutting process until the product is ready for further processing.Chopping using a knife requires a long time. Thus a potato chopping is needed to save time production costs.Potato chopper machine is a machine that functions as a large and continuous number of potato chopper. This machine uses an electric motor as a drive and is equipped with a chopper dish.This machine uses a steel frame and vault distributor.
