Details

The "Homesteader" is a single-tub cider/wine press capable of grinding and efficiently squeezing apples and grapes. The "Apple Eater" grinding attachment is conveniently mounted on the back of the press - allowing the "pulped" fruit to fall directly into the tub for squeezing. This attachment can also be mounted separately, allowing both pressing and grinding to take place at the same time. The large, bevel staved tub holds approximately one box (40 lbs) of pulped apples, and yields approximately two to three gallons of juice per press, depending upon the type of apples used.

Approximate shipping weight is 155 lbs in four boxes.

Frame

The frame is constructed 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: 40" x 25" x 20"

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 with 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. One juice rack is included with each Press.
