Details

The American Harvester double-tub cider/wine press is a combination of the best features found in different mills and presses manufactured around the turn of the century. By the ealy 1900s, the double-tub model cider mill was by far the most popular. The rugged 4-leg construction utilizing good hardwood and large amounts of cast iron make this unit appealing to farmers and orchardists.

The American Harvester double-tub cider press has an advantage in design that allows both the grinding and squeezing to take place at the same time. The grinding unit mounted on the American Harvester reduces apples to a pulp-like consistency, which allows for more efficient pressing.

In short, the American Harvester model will produce the most cider from the least amount of apples in the shortest length of time - better than any other hand-operated unit on the market.

The average team working at a comfortable pace can easily grind and squeeze 50 gallons of cider in an afternoon.

Frame

The four leg construction is of rugged laminated hardwood. All joints are dadoed and cross-bolted for full structural rigidity. You will need to protect it with varnish, lacquer, EZ-DO polyurethane or Poxy Coat.

Dimensions: 41: x 36" x 22"

Screw

The Acme-threaded press screw is 1½" in diameter, 22" long and passes through a heavy cast iron cross-arm. Pressure is applied to a reinforced press-disc which fits inside the tub. Attached to the bottom of the screw is a cast iron foot which distributes the pressure to the press-disc.

Tubs

The hardwood tubs have beveled staves for easy cleaning stands 12" high by 13½" OD in diameter and are banded with heavy steel hoops. The capacity is equivalent to a box (40 lbs) of pulped apples. One juice rack is included with each Press.

Grinder

The 5½" diameter terpolymer of ABS cylinder has eight stainless steel knives. The specially designed grinding box is all cast iron. Operation is made smooth, fast and easy by the use of an 18 lb cast iron flywheel attached to the grinder shaft.

Weight

Shipping weight approximately 170 lbs in five boxes.

Note: Please be sure to order a Jaffrey Cider Press Bag (JAFP 8035) along with your Happy Valley Press. Press bags sold separately.
