Tractor powered Cider Press

barrie2m_September 19, 2005

Do any of you know of a PTO driven cider press unit available to moderate size operations. I have been trying to find a way to convert 150-200 bu. of apples to cider and I would think that a commercial unit that takes advantage of a tractors PTO and hydraulic system would be ideal.

Cider presses are usually hydraulically powered and seldom need more then a 5 hp electric motor to run. Your biggest limitation is the capacity of the press and not the amount of power... Bob.
