They're excellent for any type of fruit and have 2" wide, adjustable straps and an 8" x 14" padded suede cushion extending down from rear edge of top opening that protects both the picker and the fruit. The draw ropes are adjustable for bag depth and unhook easily to empty fruit through bottom. Two sizes are available. Top opening of each measures 9" x 18". The medium bag (color blue) holds one bushel (42 lbs.) of apples. Its opened length is 28". The larger bag (green color) holds 1-1/3 bushel and has an opened length of 34". Either bag can be shortened for smaller capacity by simply re-knotting the tie ropes. Wells & Wade is the cadillac, the quality standard of the fruit harvesting business. They're comfortable, with proven features, and they're made to really last. Also on this page see the shoulder strap pads.

Mesh Press Basket Liner Bags

These high strength
pressing bags have holes approximately 1/16" and keep pulp from squeezing out between basket slats, enabling you to get the maximum juice yield from your produce. Disposable cotton cheesecloth is the traditional material to use for this purpose, but these mesh bags are much handier and they're very durable — one bag will last more than a season in normal use. They also speed the pressing process. Size is 15" diameter x 20" tall and easily fits pressing baskets of smaller dimensions. We recommend getting two or three in case one gets torn by a twig in the pulp, chewed by a critter in the off season, etc.

Twister fruit picker
The Twister® Fruit Picker
(pole not included)
The Twister® Fruit Picker

The Twister Fruit Picker is an innovative new way for your entire family to quickly, easily and safely pick fruit… no ladder required. The Twister includes a rope that runs to the bottom end of the pole. Pulling on the rope opens the Twister's jaws. When you release the rope tension, the Twister gently but firmly grips the fruit, letting you use both hands on the handle to twist the fruit free. Twisting releases the fruit with much less force than a straight pull, so removal is quicker and easier, and treats your fruit (and the tree's branches) more gently than other methods. Everything needed to start picking fruit in minutes is included, except for a standard threaded pole. Included is a set of small fruit adapters which easily snap onto the picking rings to allow you to pick fruit as small as 1” in diameter. The Twister weighs 8.7 ounces.

The Twister is sold without a pole. An extendable pole can be purchased at a hardware or painting supply store, or a standard threaded broom handle will work too.

Pleasant Hill Grain's Apple Cider & Fruit Presses

~ Remember real apple cider? ~
Perfectly sweet, perfectly tangy, fresh, natural apple cider: It's pure ecstasy to the taste buds, and spectacularly healthful. These days, the flavor and nutrients of commercial cider are ruined by heat treatment and preservatives, but you can still enjoy the real thing — and making it is easy and loads of fun! Apple cider & fruit presses from Pleasant Hill Grain will press your apples quickly and conveniently, giving you the freshest, healthiest, most delicious juice and cider to enjoy. Cleanup is super easy, and our fruit presses and grinders require virtually no maintenance. Capacities from 4 to 9-12/ gallons.

Easy to use: Just drop your fruit (in a mesh liner bag) into the pressing basket and turn the ratcheting handle. As you operate the easy-turning ratchet handle, fruit juice flows freely through the slats and down into your juice container. It's that simple!

Apples free for the asking?! In case you don't have your own orchard, hundreds of millions of delicious apples go unharvested every year and most are free for the asking! Help put an end to the waste... harvest bushels of fun and gallons of delicious apple cider!

Great for grapes too! Our presses function equally well as wine presses for grapes, as well as for other fruit, quickly producing maximum juice yield with their fast, convenient, efficient designs.

Apple Grinder

Apple Grinder




Optional extension for grinder hopper
Apple Grinder

If you want to use your fruit press for apples,
you'll want an apple grinder to pulp your apples before crushing. This will enable you to get much more juice from the apples. The grinder uses stainless steel teeth set into a large hardwood rotor. It has a plate and holes for mounting to your sawhorse or similar support. Some people prefer to grind into a bucket and dump into press, others prefer to mount the grinder higher and grind directly into the pressing basket. Mounting so you can grind into a bucket allows one person to press while another grinds, speeding up the whole operation. The grinder is self-feeding, so you don't need to push apples downward.

Features:
  • Stainless steel teeth set in hardwood rotor
  • Cast iron body
  • Stainless steel lower chute
  • Solid steel axle rod
  • Self-feeding design eliminates fruit-stomping
