8400 Press

8400 Press

Heavy duty 1" diam. pressing screw with Acme thread exerts a powerhouse of pressure with a minimum effort. Four threads per inch permit fast travel.

Grinder bolts to press frame. A high strength plastic drum studded with eight rows of stainless steel teeth is mounted on a steel crankshaft inside the hopper. (Grinder can be easily removed from press and mounted on a sawhorse or other support, allowing one person to grind fruit, another to press juices.)

Heavy cast-iron flywheel with hardwood handle rotates drum mounted on steel shaft -- all perfectly balanced for smooth, easy grinding.

Large steel-banded pressing tub will hold up to one bushel of pulp inside the the fitted, fine-mesh pressing bag. It will keep the skins, stems and pulp inside the bag letting only the juice flow through. You must order them extra as they are not included with the press

Entire press frame and tub are now SOLID HARD MAPLE for super strength. You must apply a final finish of one of our polyurethane coatings or varnish, lacquer or mineral oil.

Uprights of sturdy hard maple and the extra wide-stance legs provide total stability under grinding and pressing action.

Sliding collecting tray with bottom juice drain.

Table Model Fruit Press

"Authentic Old Fashioned" Fruit press for pressing soft fruit. (Tub size is 9" x 11" high and overall press size is 11" x 20") 

PLEASE NOTE: The Yakima is NOT for apples - ONLY soft fruit and grapes.

 Sturdily constructed. Fun for the whole family.


The Complete Grinder

Amazing NEW self-feeding design. No need to slice or push apples down. Comes complete with the backboard to mount on your press or stand. Now made with cast iron side plates and front plate. Works Great !!! You can install a motor easily yourself.


"Nylon" Pressing Bags

Sturdy bags made to fit your tub. You'll want these for sure as you get more juice by using them. They last a long time but it is always nice to have a spare. Just insert the bag into the tub and hang the excess over the sides. Grind your apples in the bag then fold over to complete the bag and put your pressing plug on top. When you apply pressure with the screw the juice will filter out through the bag giving making your juice clear enough to drink with the pomace of seeds, skins, and stems contained in the bag. Just empty the bag and use it over again. Wash with clear water when you're through and store for next year. Will last many years.


Wooden Hopper

Holds 35 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.


Adjustable Wheels

The press weighs over 100 pounds and if you have to move it from garage or basement they are really handy. You can go up or down stairs and over rough ground with ease. Just tilt your press toward you and drop the adjustable wheels into place and they lock automatically. Tilt the press onto the wheels and you can move your press anywhere with no strain.
