What is a Pelican Head? "Pelican Head" is the informal name for the slicer/shredder/grater attachment that can be added to most commercial grade electric mixers, meat grinder motors, choppers and power drive units. It gets its name from the chute that resembles the beak of a Pelican. This attachment allows you to operate a busy restaurant or kitchen by taking advantage of your existing power equipment by utilizing it to chop, grate, shred or slice an array of raw food items such as most vegetables and of course cheese.
The Pelican Head attachment mounts securely on the locking hub. You then select the Disc Holder (and preferred size of disc) for shredding or grating. Discs are available in six sizes from very find grater size (ie. parmesan cheese) up to 1/2" for course shredding. For slicing vegetables you use the slicer knife in the unit. The knife is adjustable for slicing vegetables from 3/16" - 1/2".
We sell the Pelican Head attachment in two sizes. The #12 size has the 1/2" square drive and will fit most commercial mixers from 12 to 60 quart size (and all other #12 power drives.) Attaches to Hobart, Univex, Varimixer, Uniworld and virtually all other brands of commercial mixers.
