Apples and other hard fruit need to be crushed to a suitable pulp before they can be pressed; they can’t be pressed whole. The “Apple Eater” fruit grinder rips through apples with ease, making your job considerably easier!
This is the 4-part “Apple Eater” grinder which consists of an all-cast-iron grinding box that can be mounted either to a vertical surface via 2 “L” mounting brackets (sold separately) or a horizontal surface such as some 2x4s or plywood with a hole cut in it. The alternative 3-part “Apple Eater” is pre-mounted to a wooden back board which also makes up the back of the grinder housing, and can only be mounted to vertical surfaces.
It includes a 5 1/2″ diameter High Intensity polymer cylinder with 8 serrated stainless steel knives encased by a specially designed all-cast-iron grinding box. Operation is made smooth, fast and easy by the use of a 18lb. cast iron flywheel attached to the 3/4″ grinding shaft. The result is a totally maintenance-free grinding device that quickly reduces a box of apples to a “pulp” ready for easy pressing.
