Hydropress Fruit Grape Apple Wine Press

Please Note: Prices of many products are under unprecedented inflationary pressures now, and resupply continues to be very difficult with many delays. Factories are having trouble getting critical parts due to ongoing Covid-related supply chain disruptions, and overseas shipping costs passed “insane” weeks ago. In early 2021, we could ship a 40' container from overseas in for $5800. Currently it's $17,400 to $27,000. If gas had gone up as much, it would now cost over $200 to fill up a Honda Pilot. And the last change in container shipping rates was upward again. Our resupply lead-time for some goods has increased by 12 months. There are many other factors as well, and the bottom line is that retail goods prices will be going up, and availability will be going down. Increased general inflation means your dollars are worth less daily, making needed goods more valuable than cash. All of this means now is the time to order what you need, whether it’s still in stock for now, or on its way to us.


Apple orchard harvestA hydro-powered approach to the fruit press/grape press: Water pressure delivered through your garden hose powers this unique fruit pressing machine. As effective as it is simple, the hydropress consists principally of two parts: An outer, perforated stainless steel basket and an expandable inner rubber bladder. Before water pressure is applied, the rubber bladder occupies a small cylindrical space in the center of the assembly. The space surrounding the bladder (21G/80L or 10G/40L) is filled with your crushed fruit, then the pressure lid is secured on top. With the turn of a ball valve, the heavy duty rubber bladder of the cider press expands and juice starts flowing through the perforations of the basket. Moments later you have great volumes of juice in your bucket, and spent pulp that's really spent.

Fast transition: Opening the drain valve quickly returns the bladder of the fruit press to its original size, and the pressure lid is removed. Lift the basket over onto a tarp or cart, lift up the basket's mesh liner bag, the pomace (spent pulp) drops out, and you're ready for the next fill cycle. Extracting a high yield of juice from your fruit doesn't get any faster, or easier, than this.

Our well-built hydropress works equally well as a wine press/destemmed grape press, cider press, pear press, general fruit press. It is not suitable for hard fruits or vegetables such as olives, carrots, or beets, or for citrus fruits.

  • “This is my second press from PHG… the buying process was simple, the delivery uncomplicated and speedy, and setting up the press a breeze. It worked fast, efficiently, and I'm very happy with the hydropress. It's solidly made and I expect it to give me years of service.”

One mesh liner comes standard with the fruit press. The main press comes assembled. The three legs and a valve need to be attached, which can be done in just a few minutes.

As with any press, to get good juice yield from apples you need to pulp them first. Proper pulping lets you get three to four times as much juice from the apples, compared to pressing the fruit whole. Our Electric Apple Grinder is perfectly suited to the capacity of the hydro press.
