Where these packages are different
Each package differs in two distinct ways.
How you dip the birds in the scalder the birds
Two of the packages have the manual dunking system which will help you by not having to dunk the birds yourself but you will have to be manually present and dunking the birds.
Two of the packages have the Roto Dunking automated system which allows you to load the roto dunker and walk away from the scalder freeing up one minute per four birds.
If they have a cooling tank or not.
The cooling tank has a 300-gallon capacity and will chill up to 200 birds. USDA food-grade plastic, 1" PVC drain valve, compact.

The unit mounts on the Featherman Scalder in about 5 seconds, locking into place. No tools are required. Great for Turkeys, Ducks, Chickens.
Featherman Roto Dunker:
New in 2012, the new Roto-Dunker fits on top of the Featherman scalder for hands-and-back-free scalding. The Roto-Dunker will handle up to 2 – 5lb (dressed weight) birds per basket (20lbs total). Each basket is turned by a light duty, geared down motor. The consistency of the scald is unparalleled because only half the birds are in the scalder at any time and there is less yo-yoing of water temperature. There are no pinch points as the rotation easily stops in the event of an obstruction, making the Roto-Dunker absolutely safe.
At six rotations per minute there is no need for a timer, no need to worry about a start/stop switch. It scalds birds up to about five pounds dressed weight, the operation is silent, and produces a consistent scald every time. The Roto-Dunker is like having an extra man in the processing crew!
