The DIY crusher is a tough, effective crusher for apples, pears, grapes, and other hard or soft fruit. The KSX14 crossbeam press is simple to use and built to last. The strong cast iron crossbeam is swung open for easy filling of the press. Put the crusher on top and you can mill the apples directly into the basket. The press yields around 6L (10 pints) of juice per pressing.
