Helpful Hint: To prevent the wood from drying and cracking, you'll need to protect it with food grade lacquer, poxy coating, or polyurethane gel. We recommend using Howard's Wood and Butcher Block Conditioner. See Related Products.

    Includes Apple Eater Fruit Grinder-This Double Fruit Press comes with the Apple Eater Fruit Grinder. The 16"OD, 20 lb flywheel makes it easy to turn and boosts juice output by up to 60%. Just drop in the fruit and turn the crank. Exclusive self-feed design literally draws in fruit. Pulped fruit drops directly into pressing tub. With the double tub press, two people (one to grind and one to press) can work at the same time. Grinder is removable to use separate from press or to use press as a wine press.

    Oversize tub-Line tub (11¼"H x 13½"OD) with pressing bag (not included) and add up to a full bushel of fruit. Beveled edge staves are easy to clean. Heavy steel bands are securely attached with screws.

    Built to last-It's the heaviest press on the market. Long-lasting Acme square-shoulder threads on 1½" pressing screw, reinforced crossbar and pressing disc.

    Tough hardwood frame-Entire press is built of high strength rock maple instead of less expensive, more common hardwoods. Critical joints dadoed and cross bolted. Major cross members are several layers thick. Comes unfinished. Apply food grade lacquer, poxy coating, or polyurethane gel before you use your press and before storing it for long periods of time. Built in the USA with domestic and imported parts (wood and cast iron are USA made).

    Note: Fruit presses are shipped directly from the manufacturer. Delivery may take several weeks depending on the time of year.
    Assembly takes about 1 hour.

    The wheels and feed hopper are optional, they must be purchased separately.

    * NOTE: This product is drop shipped. This means it is shipped directly from the manufacturer and may take an extra week or two to be delivered.
    * NOTE: An additional $20 shipping surcharge is required.

    "A work horse with an old fashioned aesthetic that is very pleasing. I have used mine for nearly a decade, pressing out 30-40 bushels of apples every year, at home and at my school site. Some pieces of the press wore out prematurely, but the manufacturer replaced them immediately and at no cost. The EX-Do sealer is excellent and should not be overlooked. The wheel kit and hopper are worthwhile. (If you only get one major add on, though, I can recommend the wheel kit.This thing is hefty, and it is a two-person job to move it.) There is *nothing* quite like the cider you can produce with this little beauty."

    "I worked on one of these this past weekend. Two adults (and a bunch of kids bringing in the apples) made about 19 gallons of cider in a few hours. Press works well & seems durable. My only comment is that the apples could be ground up finer."
