Historically,  the fly-wheel slicer model 3 substituted the slicer models L-R-1-2. For over 9 years, this flywheel slicer was  – and still is nowadays – the most successful of the period at the point that its successor – flywheel slicer Berkel 5 – will maintain untouched its most important aspect : the mechanics.

The Berkel model 3 flywheel slicer with its own pedestal is characterized by a special system which was first adopted back in 1908 with respect to its predecessor fly-wheel slicer model 2. Its fly-wheel is flower type, and on rotating it, it will operate the gears  situated under the base of model 3. In turn, these gears will operate the blade through the chain and the scroll carriage, by means of two connecting rods. The scroll carriage of such professional flywheel slicer is placed on the blade close side and scrolls in a pivot.  On the opposite side instead, it leans upon a squared bar through a scrolling felt. Eventually the two guides are supported by four columns fixed at their base (two columns for each guide).

On Berkel model 3 base is the relevant graduated dial knob  to the slice thickness regulation; it is to operate the peck-shaped lever situated on the axle of the toothed wheel, present on the carriage. The movement of the wheel is conveyed to the worm screw where the clamp comb is into, thus generating the slicing movement. The clamp moves right or left of the toothed wheel, which being connected to a lever, it can be manually operated by the user.

Which such flywheel slicer, the fixing of the product to be sliced is ensured by an attachment clamp on the scroll carriage. Such clamp is composed of a column with a friction knob on its rear side and a rack-rod at front. The two parts are linked one another through a toothed arm acting on the product to be sliced.

Berkel Model 3 is sharpener equipped flywheel slicer, a quite knack and innovative system made of a closed nickel treated moulded case with two jerks for its sharpening.

As per the previous models, this flywheel slicer as well, has got its shoulder in round shape. Moreover, on the upper side of this design slicer are :  the hub to which the blade is connected, the tinplate tray for the cold meat gathering; the blade back guard , the blade front guard and the slice separator tab. On the low side of the machine is the relevant Berkel trademark name plate.
