Professional performance above what you might expect! Recommended without reservation even for small commercial operations and community gardeners.
Note: Fruit Press is pictured with grinder. You can buy the tub with or without the grinder.
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.
Optional Apple Eater Grinder-You can buy this fruit press 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. It is made in China.
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. Press is built in the USA with domestic and imported parts (wood and cast iron are USA made)
Assembly takes about 1 hour.
The wheels and feed hopper are optional, they must be purchased separately.
Note: Fruit presses are shipped directly from the manufacturer. Delivery may take several weeks depending on the time of year.
