Unlock the flavors hidden in apples, grapes and other fruits by preparing ciders and wines. The screw-down method of pressing is one of the oldest and most efficient ways to tap the natural tastes of your favorite fruits for tasty beverages made at home. Simply place the fruits in the juicing basket, cover them with the wood pressing board and crank the handle down. As the board squeezes the fruit, the juice escapes through the wooden slats down to a built-in spout for mess-free removal. The rachet mechanism provides leverage and power to extract the maximum amount of juice. Tripod base has bolt-down feet for easy one-person operation. Powder-coated cast-iron construction resists rust and deterioration caused by the citric acids and sugars found in most fruits. Overall dimensions: 21-1/2" dia. x 36-1/2"H. Weight: 60 lbs.
