Partially Stainless Steel Motorized Crusher Destemmer with spring loaded, adjustable rubber rollers. Rubber rollers are sometimes preferred for a gentler crush. Rollers are spring loaded to allow/protect for the passing of hard item like a rock. They do offer a degree of adjustabiliy, however no hobby model crusher destemmer will allow rollers to be separated far enough to not crush the grapes. These types of crusher destemmers must be fed grapes in a systematic way. Overloading the hopper will bog down the machine. Internal stainless grate slides out for easy cleaning.
As grape clusters are fed into the hopper on top, a stainless steel auger moves them towards the crusher rollers. The grapes, along with the stems, then drop through the rollers, falling below to where the destemmer basket is located. A second auger fit with destemming paddles runs through the middle of the destemming basket then moves stems in the opposite direction of the hopper auger above. The holes in the basket allows grapes to pass through but not the stems. The crushed grapes will drop straight down from under the crusher rollers, while the stems will drop out from the opposite end of the unit, where the destemmer cage ends.
