The wooden fruit crusher is made in Colombia.
Q Donald (Sierra Vista, AZ)
After crushing the grapes, how do I empty the crusher? Do I turn it sideways onto the press or is it open on the bottom and the crushed grapes consistently drop out of the bottom?
The crusher has an open bottom that the crushed fruit comes out of. You should have a food grade container under the crusher to catch the pulp.

Customer Reviews"Perfect size, glad I bought it." Review by Dude (Posted on 11/10/15)
I had two bushels of apples to chew up. The crusher was the perfect size. I did have to push down on the apples in the hopper sometimes to get them to feed into the rollers. But most of the time it had no problem. Took about 30 min. with my son cranking and me keeping the hopper full. Very happy I bought it."grape crusher" Review by Nano (Posted on 10/5/15)
This grape crusher worked well when it was new and after small improvement (some barriers were falling down between the rollers and the walls on both side, i screwed 2 pieces of wood in the hopper, one on each side). However, after 5 seasons (about 10 tonnes of grapes), the cast aluminum gears on the outside are all eaten up from hitting each other and there are no replacement gears offered from OEM. I order something that might work from [another manufacturer]... The gears i order have double the teeth, but since i'm replacing both that doesn't matter as long as the PD is 2.25". And i made sure the gears are steel, not cast aluminum (very important)."Crushing Blueberries" Review by Bobby (Posted on 6/25/15)
If the OEM offered replacement gears i would have given it 3 stars, if the gears were steel i would have given it 4 stars
Lots of berries seem to slip through the spaces. Would be great for larger fruit but very disappointed with blueberries. Very expensive lesion."Very well made" Review by Ron B (Posted on 2/11/15)
I have used this crusher on scuppernong, grapes, strawberries and apples so far. Did a quick and good job of breaking them up. glad i bought it."Work with FP110 crusher rather inconvenient." Review by Dmitry (Posted on 12/27/13)
I used this to crush usually 100-150 lb of apples. I cut the apples on 4-5 parts, and then ran them through the crusher. Sometimes they needed to be "helped" along by pushing them down because the teeth wouldn't catch at times. After the purchase I had to adjust crusher as the teeth sometimes hurt each other. In my experience, claiming that the grinding is insufficient, as I have to grind the apples twice because the small yield of juice. I advise you to spend 2-3 days of fermentation the crushed pulp of apples before pressing. In this case, the output of juice more at 30-40%. I will look for crusher, which does not need to be cut up fruits before crushing, and I can adjust the degree of grinding. Work with FP110 crusher rather inconvenient."Apples are bit harder to crush" Review by T Clear - Arch River Farm (Posted on 11/8/13)
I used the wooden fruit crusher to crush a variety of apples before pressing into cider. I do like that the frame is made of wood which is similar to my fruit press. Crusher works mechanically very well but due to the hardness and size of apples they tended not to go through the crusher. We found that quartering the apples and using a board to force the apples into the crusher worked well but definitely required two people to operate. Also found that the hopper is a definite required to funnel the fruit into the crusher. One improvement would be for the hopper to secure to the crusher so downward force on apples does not shift it. Crusher worked well once we figured out the adjustments and was easy to clean by hosing down. This product is good for small batches of fruit and softer fruit."Saved Me Hours of Labor" Review by FreeingTibet (Posted on 9/27/13)
Last year we hand-crushed 33 lbs. of Marechal Foch grapes. It took hours. This year, we managed about the same volume in one-fifth the time. The crusher cleans up easily, and the teeth did well with the smaller grapes, only occasionally letting a full grape or large piece of pulp get through. I recommend this to any home wine maker."great for crushing grapes" Review by occasional winemaker (Posted on 10/20/12)
I just used the crusher for the first time. I found it to be the best way to crush muscadines. It was easy to use, quick, and cleaning was no problem. I'll never go back to crushing by hand."good for crushing larger fruit" Review by fruit_winemaker (Posted on 9/21/12)
Just used this to crush 50 lb of peaches. I cut the peaches in half since they had to be pitted anyway, and then ran them through the crusher, took about an hour. Sometimes they needed to be "helped" along by pushing them down because the teeth wouldn't catch at times (which is the only reason i gave 4 stars instead of 5), but overall worked great, and gets the right consistency for making good wine. The wine had more juice yield than crushing by hand (which is how i used to do it before getting this crusher). I've also ran pears through it, and it performed equally as well. I'd say it's well worth the investment - solid construction looks like it is built to last, and is also fairly easy to clean"wooden grape crusher" Review by toddrod (Posted on 8/6/12)
I just recieved this crusher today. I ordered it specifically to crush large (1 - 1.5 inch) muscadines for wine making. Instead of the close gap like the other type of crushers, this crusher has the teeth and a wider gap that has made crushing a 5 gallon bucket of muscadines very easy and pretty quick. No more crushing by hand. It fits perfectly on top of a bucket.
It is well worth the money.
