Homesteader Single Tub Cider & Wine Press


Sorry, this item will not be available until Spring 2020. The manufacturer went out of business just before the 2019 season.  A new company will continue to manufacture the presses and products but will need to use the remainder of 2019 to move the manufacturing facilities and rebuild new inventory.   

The "Homesteader" is a single-tub cider or wine press with the same basic frame and press screw assembly as our double-tub model. It has been specifically designed as an all-purpose fruit press which is capable of grinding and efficiently squeezing apples, grapes, and other fruits and vegetables. (Pictured with optional wheel kit)

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. Moun


Technical Specifications:

FRAME: The frame is constructed of rugged laminated hardwood. All joints are dadoed and cross-bolted for full structural rigidity.

WOOD FINISH: ALL PRESSES COME UNFINISHED! You will need to protect it with varnish, lacquer, Poxy Coating or EZ-DO Polyurethane Gel.

SCREW: The Acme-threaded press screw is 1 1/2" in diameter, 22" long, and passes through a heavy cast-iron cross arm. The 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. It is suggested that you apply a small amount of lubricant to the screw as well as the inside the pressure foot. See our Petro-Gel Lubricant.

TUBS: The hardwood tub has beveled staves for easy cleaning, it is 12" high, 13 1/2" in diameter, and is banded with heavy steel hoops. The capacity is equivalent to a box of "pulped" apples. One juice rack included with each Homesteader.

GRINDER: The 5 1/2" diameter epoxy coated laminated wood drum has 8 serrated stainless steel knives. The specially designed grinding box is all cast iron. The operation is made smooth, fast and easy by the use of an 18 lb. cast iron flywheel attached to the grinding shaft.

OVERALL SIZE:31" wide x 25" long x 40" high

Ships in four boxes 157 lbs.  Note: Additional shipping charges will apply outside the lower 48 States.

Select an optional wheel kit. Tip press forward and drop the 8" wheels in place. Pull the press back toward you and the wheels automatically lock into place. Makes moving the press very easy, even down steps and over rough ground. 

Select optional wooden hopper. Holds 40 pounds of apples and makes grinding easier and faster. You need not push the apples down and you will get a better grind because of the steady flow of fruit into the grinder.
