All the same features of our top-of-the-line double tub press in a single tub unit! Same basic frame and press screw assembly! Great all-purpose unit that grinds and squeezes apples, grapes and other fruits and veggies.
The most popular feature of the Homesteader Press & Grinder is the powerful "Apple Eater" grinding attachment that is easily mounted and unmounted for using separately. Apples are pressed and ground at the same time! The Apple Eater comes mounted on the back of the press so that the pulped fruit fall directly into the tub for squeezing.
Rugged designed is now made of maple hard wood for longevity. Each joint has been re-designed for a tighter fit-- and is still notched and cross-bolted. The acme-threaded screw is 1 1/2" diameter and 22" long. It features a four prong top so turning is easy!
The acme screw presses against our updated pressing disk. This disk, like the frame, is made of hard maple and has a 2" reinforced handle with inset for easy handling. Tub has beveled staves for easy cleaning. Drum assembly features hard maple wood with stainless-steel inset teeth. We've increased the mass for increased power for apple eating. Cast iron grinding box. Sturdy unit designed to handle usage for decades!
