Description

Our #1 selling crusher/destemmer style, this motorized unit with a stainless screw feed also features a stainless steel Body and Bin making it a completely stainless steel model.

How These Work:
Grapes are loaded into the top bin where the powered screw feed continually pushes grapes towards the rollers. Grapes are gently crushed by the rubber rollers and then fall into the destemming chamber. The destemming chamber features a removable basket with a bunch of circular holes in it and rotating destemming shaft. Grapes fall through the holes into your bucket. Stems get rotated through the basket by the destemming shaft until they exit at the end of the machine where they fall onto the ground or an awaiting bucket.

Rubber Rollers
This model features soft rubber rollers which are softer on stems possibly reducing rough tannins in your wine. The rollers are spring loaded and self adjusting to protect against damage, such as the accidental passing of a small stone. 

Output Production
Powered by a 1hp motor that provides an hourly production of approximately of up to 3000 lbs. Note that these machines must be fed with consistency to reach maximum throughput. Overload the machine with too many grapes at one time and the motor will pause and actually slow down production.

Cleaning
Remove two quick bolts and the safety cover slides off and the internal stainless destemming grate slides out for easy cleaning. The hose out the rest of the unit. Comes with directions.

can the rollers be removed so grapes only destemmed?
Donna Aldred on Jun 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Donna, I don't know why you would want to remove the rollers other than to clean them, and that is not necessary. The rollers are what destem the grapes. This machine is amazing. It can destem a 25 pound box of grapes in about a minute and a half. About 80-90% of the stems are removed from the grapes. The rest we remove by hand.
How do you adjust the rollers as the manual is terrible? Are there any videos on how to clean the unit as well?
Kathy Dunn on Sep 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: With regard to the rollers, I don't believe that they can be adjusted. They will move themselves in case of any solid or large objects accidentally going through but otherwise, the rollers have never been an issue because the factory setting is extremely good. The manufacturers recommend that you not make any adjustments at all because the rollers often get out of sync if you do. If you really really need to make the adjustment, there is an instruction for doing so with the destemmer. It's a pdf sheet. My answer wouldn't let me post the site unfortunately. The range of adjustment is very limited, though. Maybe a couple of tenths of an inch at best. Again, not recommended.

Cleaning is time-consuming and just requires patience. I've used a number of different crushers and this one is pretty average for cleaning. The best way I've found is to get out your power washer and start the top and work your way down through the machine. Then tip it on its side and work your way through the underside, rotating the auger and rollers in order to get all the grapes and stems out. It just takes time. Seems endless but eventually it comes clean and free of debris.

What happened to Italian craftsmanship?
Seriously, what happened to Italian craftsmanship? Upon uncrating this machine, I noticed some sharp edges. For the rest of the day, we had to remember to put gloves on whenever we would touch it. It's super sharp all over, be careful of this thing!!
(Anybody want to buy a barely used, really "sharp" looking machine, only used once?)

The crusher destemmer performed very well. I am very happy with the purchase. The length of the electrical cord is a bit short, and would have liked one a bit longer. The placement of the switch also is undesirable. Cleaning the crusher destemmer worked well. I use a hose. Storage preparation should be emphasized .
