Metal Apple Press Hire
£35.00 per day
This metal press consists of a heavy steel frame on which five 'cheeses' of apple pomace wrapped in clothes are sandwiched between slatted boards. It will typically press 30-40 kg of fruit (resulting in 20-25 litres of juice) per pressing, and you might expect to do around 3 pressings per hour. The Press' dimensions are approx 113 cm x 54 cm x 71 cm (weight 63 kg) and together with the mill and buckets you can just squeeze it into the back of a large estate car. Orchard Link uses this press for its Pressing Days and Farmers Market events, and it is the most popular with members.
This press comes with a Spiedel Electrical Mill, please read the instructions for the press and the mill (downloadable below) together and watch the safety and operating video here
