Enoitalia Adjustable Manual Crusher/De-Stemmer
The Manual Crusher/De-stemmer is equipped with a 20" x 38.5" hopper and paddle style auger. A manual hand crank drives double aluminum rollers that turn grapes into pulp before pressing. Fruit and grape pulp comes out the bottom of the unit while the stems come out the side. For greater stability, set the crusher directly on the Crusher Stand, sold separately. Requires some assembly.
We harvested 1000 lbs of grapes this year. I did first 300 lbs with our manual process by dragging grapes over a grate to destem and crush. I decided for the rest I needed something that would be less labor and time intensive.
I could load 2 - 3 5 gallon buckets of grapes in hopper and it takes about 2 minutes to process. I processed about 250 - 300 lbs of grapes in 15 minutes.
The cleanup process is great too. They have 4 handles that remove, all the pieces come apart that need to be washed in about 2 minutes. Hose it down.
I already have a tank that I put it on but I could see the value in the stand if I didn't have one.
