“This all stainless steel press has been amazing. We have been pressing our own olives for the past few years plus pressing for an ever growing number of other olive growers in our area.  We find that with the double malaxers we can run around 300kg an hour or as little as a 50kg load for the smaller groves. Since the 2018 harvest it has been taken completely apart and given a thorough internal wash and sterilize. I then had an engineer go thru everything and replace the belts and bearings. He also added some more accessible grease nipples.  I also had the electrician check the electric motors and replace some bearings. So the press is ready to go all freshened up for the next owner.  I am located in the mid Northland and can provide transport anywhere from South Auckland to North Cape on my large trailer by arrangement. The 3 parts being the olive washer, twin malaxer and twin centrifuge units are quick to set up as long as there is 3 phase electricity.  I also have some other equipment available like separate de-leafer, conveyor belts and similar lifting equipment.  $35,000 including GST.”
