- You will most likely have to cut extra wood pieces in order to completely crush the fruit. I cut 6, 6 inch long pieces from a 2x4 and these worked perfectly.
- You will have to attach your press to something stationary in order to really crank down on the fruit. I originally attached it to a pallet that I could stand on while tightening the press. This worked okay but because I'm tall, I had to hunch over and this started hurting my back. After a few batches, I decided to stack four pallets (with the press attached to the top pallet) to save my back and get better leverage while crushing the fruit. I chose to use a pallet because I wanted to be able to remove my press and put it away into storage without taking up a lot of space.
- You'll need to crush your apples before putting them in the press in order to get the most juice. Simply leaving the apples whole or in large chunks won't yield as much juice as crushing will. I got about .75 gallons of juice from each full basket of crushed apples.
- A ratcheting device on the screw would be quite helpful instead of having to turn the crank around and around. I'm not sure if something like that is available but I will definitely be looking into it before I press more apples next year.
Overall, this is a really great fruit press. I am very pleased with it and can't wait to make more cider next year. My only complaint is that it did not include more wood pieces, but it was easy enough to cut my own.
This was easy to put together, and is well made. It's easy to wash with a hose, and all parts are washable, and treated, so no rust. I would buy this item again.
