This press has been through 7 crushes and works great. We upgraded to a pneumatic membrane press that can process more fruit so we no longer need this one. It comes with a spare bladder and hose hookup for your garden hose. The only thing that doesnt work on this press is the pressure gauge, however, if you're water pressure is below 65psi then you have nothing to worry about, most hosehold pressures do not exceed 45psi. Structurally the press is in good shape. Cosmetically you can tell that it has been used, the paint is chipping in places but can be repaired easily with some food grade enamel. In the photo you will see a catch basin with an attatched 1.5" tri-clamp fitting, this is available for an extra $50. The price for the press is $1500 firm. It can be viewed in new condition here, http://wineryparts.com/index.php/equipment/grape-processing-equipment/presses/bladder-press/85-gal-wood-basket-bladder-press.html.

Please call the winery with questions at 260-495-WINE (9463) ask for Eric or Shane

Is the catch basin food grade plastic? I'm guessing it is, but don't want to assume...
