The Maximizer-GSAM 36 liter fruit press has an integrated Grinder Swing Arm Mount (GSAM) that allows you to mount our optional Maximizer apple grinder right on your press for maximum convenience and productivity. The Maximizer provides the top quality construction and superior design features you need.
To call the Maximizer's construction stout would be an understatement... this is the Sherman Tank of fruit presses. Its frame has the strength to withstand tremendous pressure, and the acme-threaded forcing screw and solid ratchet mechanism make it easy to create that pressure. (Forcing screw is 1-1/4" diameter.) With a Maximizer press you can quickly and easily develop pressures that will send other presses to the scrap heap. Higher pressure = higher juice yields and more production in less time.
With the pull of a single pin, the Maximizer's upper yoke tips fully out of your way for full basket loading-and-unloading access. The speed and convenience of this design makes the pressing operation fast and easy.
A frame made of 3/16" wall thickness steel tubing combines with a solid oak pressing basket and stainless steel pan to make the Maximizer a press you'll enjoy using for many years. When shipped, the press legs are bolted down to a wooden board which you can use as a base, or reuse/recycle. The board acts to prevent damage during shipment. Does not include fruit grinder.
The Maximizer presses features a handy Fast Retract handle socket. After the juice has been squeezed from a batch of fruit and the forcing screw has been ratcheted backward a few strokes to relieve pressure, remove the ratchet handle from its horizontal socket and drop it into the adjacent vertical socket. This Fast Retract feature lets you spin the forcing screw and pressing plate quickly back up to the top of the basket.
