Maximizer® Wine 36L Press w/GSAM

Grapes to harvestThe Maximizer® wine press is built very, very strong. Its rectangular steel tubing frame has a wall thickness of 3/16”, and it features a large diameter forcing screw that lets you put tremendous pressure on your grapes to extract the maximum juice yield from your vineyard’s harvest.

A simple and effective ratcheting mechanism with long steel handle provides excellent mechanical advantage, taking the hard work out of wine pressing. The traveling-screw design of this wine press speeds up operation by eliminating the need to add pressing blocks in multiple stages on top of the pressing plate, as is required with most fixed-screw wine presses.

Large capacities

The 9.5 gallon model of the Maximizer wine press holds 85 pounds of grapes, while the 5.3 gallon version holds 48 lbs. of grapes.

Easy tip-off yoke

The upper yoke, or cross beam, of the Maximizer wine press tips completely out of your way for access to load and empty the basket. This design makes the wine pressing operation easy and efficient.

Best materials

A frame made of 3/16"-wall high strength rectangular steel tubing and a pre-sealed teak or stainless steel pressing basket with stainless steel pan give the Maximizer wine press the strength to last for years and years of use. And we package the press well to protect everything during shipping. The Maximizer presses arrive in two shipping boxes and require assembly.

  • “I had trouble finding a quality cider press until I came across you guys last fall and I want to tell you that this is a terrific machine. I did a hundred bushels of apples and it worked perfectly. It’s a good value too. Thank you for offering such a great fruit press!”

    – Stuart Smith, Maine

GSAM feature

The Maximizer-GSAM fruit press features an integrated Grinder Swing Arm Mount (GSAM) that allows you to mount an optional apple grinder right on your press for maximum convenience and productivity.

 The GSAM provides you with a secure mount for the optional apple grinder. It puts the grinder just where you need it to rapidly pulverize apples for full juice extraction, and then just as easily it swings your grinder out of the way for pressing.

Fast Retract feature

The Maximizer presses now features a very handy Fast Retract handle socket. After the juice has been squeezed from a batch of fruit and the forcing screw has been ratcheted backward a few strokes to relieve pressure, remove the ratchet handle from its horizontal socket and drop it into the adjacent vertical socket. This Fast Retract feature lets you spin the forcing screw and pressing plate quickly back up to the top of the basket.

Lubricating the Acme Screw

It's important to keep the acme forcing screw well lubricated with food safe grease; this greatly reduces wear and turning effort, and dramatically increases maximum pressure and juice yield.

Mesh Basket-Liner Bag

If you want to press apples, pears, or other fruit that's fine-grained when pulped, we recommend ordering an accessory mesh basket-liner bag. Traditionally, disposable cheesecloth is used to keep finer fruit pulps from squirting out between the basket holes under high pressure, but our mesh bags are reusable and much more convenient.
