Description

Electric Apple Grinder

Our all-stainless electric apple grinder (aka apple crusher/pulper/pulverizer/masher) makes fine pulp of your apples, allowing your apple or fruit press to extract the maximum yield of delicious juice. With an updated baffle design in the feed chute, it will take whole apples, large or small, poured rapidly down the chute. It works equally well for pears and other soft, pitless fruit. Compared to pressing whole apples, this electric apple grinder lets you get up to four times as much juice from your fruit!

Sturdy & corrosion-free: All structural and contact parts are made from industrial grade AISI 304 stainless steel for long life and quick, easy cleanup. All construction is heavy-duty and rugged.

A hefty 2 hp (3,400 rpm) motor provides unlabored operation and years of reliable use. Grinds a pound of fruit per second to a perfect pulp for pressing!

  • “It's rare to do business with people who place principle above profit. I recommend your company highly.”

    – Roland Young, KS

Safety first: A lockout switch in the base of the unit requires the hopper/blade cover to be in place, or power will not be supplied to the motor. Baffles in the chute prevent hand contact with blades.

Our electric apple grinder is perfect for the serious home-orchard owner or community group. The electric apple grinder is also known as a fruit crusher, pulverizer, masher, pulper, chopper, shredder, and electric apple scratter.

Dimensions: 18" W x 18" D x 53-1/4" H, pulp discharge height 15", weight 56 lbs.

Warranty: Full one year non-commercial warranty

We also offer the best hand-crank apple pulper, the Maximizer™ Apple Grinder. And don't miss our great collection of apple cider presses!

  • “This is a fantastic unit. It works great and produces high yields. I run it with a 20L bladder press and have been able to get very high yields. 120 lbs. of apples produced 17 gal of juice. Didn't even sweat the apples, just straight from the orchard. I highly recommend.”

  • The perfect machine!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I bought this apple grinder to process about ten tons of apples that we do every fall. It's absolutely perfectly balanced and unbelievably powerful. It processes the fruit like it's nothing and really moves the job forward. Best money I've spent on our family cider tradition! No regrets whatsoever!

  • The Electric Apple Grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I make pear wine, My wife is very conservative and does not want to spend money, but I was tired of hand cutting five bushels of pears at a time. I bought your electric fruit crusher. After the first time using it my wife is glad we spent the money. It does everything as advertised. We're starting a small fruit winery and I'm doing a lot of searching for the right equipment to purchase at a fair price. This was the right decision.

    Pour the apples down the chute and WHOOSH they're pulped so fast you can't believe it. I appreciate the heavy duty construction too, even the chute is rigid, not tinny. The pulp consistency is ideal. Just a great machine, very well worth it.

  • Awesome Apple Grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This grinder is awesome! I got the grinder in conjunction with a hydro press and they are an amazing team. I got into the habit of duct taping a plastic curtain on the back and two sides of the chute. This prevented the mush from getting on the motor or escaping the collection pot, making for no mess, and easier clean-up. I ground apples, pears, and quince with great success. Don't think I could ever grind apples by hand again.

  • Good grinder
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Great for getting through a lot of apples and making a perfect mash for cider. Just four stars instead of five as it's pricey. A bit labor intensive to clean at the end... do it right away. So glad to have gotten a new one, no more apples bouncing back... no stick pushing etc.

    Much better then the meat grinder I started out with. This grinder goes through apples as fast as I can load them. Makes a nice mash that's easy to squeeze.

  • Electric apple grinder is fantastic!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This electric apple grinder is simply fantastic! It performs far beyond expectations; everything is made of durable, easy-to-clean stainless steel; it should last for literally generations to come. I just can't say enough good things about it. It would be a bargain at any price, because there is simply nothing like it for its purpose of grinding apples. A wonderful machine!

  • Very Happy
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I received my apple grinder in 2 days all the way to Toronto Canada. It arrived as described. The unit looks very heavy duty. I can't wait to pour the bushels right into it.
