Title: Apple Crusher / Scratters
Post by: Digger the Dog on October 28, 2017, 12:46
I know of the Fruit Shark and I've used one. Great bit of kit but at nearly 700, I can't really justify spending that much.

I've seen this beast and it appears that the pulp produced is pretty good. Has anyone used this machine and what did you think of it?

Fruit shark is 500...but the one you are looking at on ebay is from germany. We do not pay VAT in germany, but you might have to when importing this.

Hello an old man I worked for made a fruit crusher grapes,apples pears and blackberries went through it,it was made from an old cloth mangle laid on it's side with an hopper on top the rollers had stainless steel studs screwed into them the rollers were opened for different fruit it was hand operated till we fitted a pulley and fixed the rotavator to it that was a lot quicker   jezza
