I'll be looking for a much better unit before the next season of oranges and lemons
on December 14, 2016
Even though this was not an expensive piece of equipment, I thought it would at least last for a year ... This one replaced an identical unit I purchased last December, 2015, as a Christmas Gift. It was used twice in the beginning of this year, 2016. I ran about 2 dozen oranges from our tree in the back yard into juice and then about 4 dozen small lemons off another tree we have for juice as well. Those two uses worked out ok, but I just tried using it again for oranges this time of the year and the gears got stripped... I wasn't pushing down hard on the orange half to strip the gears, so I'm not sure why that happened. Only because we have a tree now full or oranges and lemons did I buy the same item; this unit was very inexpensive. I'll be looking for a much better unit before the next season of oranges and lemons, one that has metal parts I guess and can stand up to running for an hour or two at a time. I will not buy this unit again.
