Laura Sweany Sure does! You can see Jamie dropping apples into the grinder, and I am turning the grinding wheel while the ground apples are dropping into the rear bucket. The forward bucket has the press completely lowered, and the juice is flowing into the black bucket on the ground in front of the unit. In the foreground, almost obscuring the juice bucket, is the garbage can that will receive the pressed pulp - to be fed to the pigs. If we had a still, we could distill the apple mash and make brandy, eau de vie, or apple vodka - as well as produce methanol for running cars or farm equipment. Its one handy unit!
