#70 ratchet wine press

Also called manual press, it is above all the essential machinery for wine making, as it allows you to squeeze the grape pomace after fermentation.

The press is entirely made by our company with high quality materials.

  • Two-speed ratchet movement
  • Steel threaded screw
  • Cage made of evaporated beech wood slats with removable pins
  • Ratchet movement in cast iron
  • Reinforced steel must gathering basin with brackets
  • Cage size: 70 cm (diameter); 83 cm (height)
  • Screw diameter: 70 mm
  • Cage capacity: 1000 kg
  • Grape marc capacity Lt. 320
  • Total weight: 325 kg
  • Complete with chunks and crescents


How it works:

1. Getting started

  • Before using the press it is necessary to remove with a brush and/or air blast any dust particles which are present in the inner parts (which could come into contact with the grapes) furthermore use a damp cloth to clean: the cage, the semi-circular wooden press plates and the pawls.

2. Filling the press

  • Remove all interior wood pieces and make sure using the plugs supplied closes the cage.
  • Lift the jack upwards along the threaded screw (turning it counterclockwise), fill in the cage with the grape pulp (as in the photo) and insert the two semi-circular wooden press plates (two sturdy half-moons made of evaporated beech wood) once joined they will coincide with the diameter of the cage and there will be a gap in the center for the main screw. Place the wooden blocks on top of the half-moons, they should rest perpendicular to the direction in which the half-moons have been set, as seen in the photo.


3. Preparing the pressing

  • Lower the jack, turning it clockwise until it rests on the wooden blocks (the wooden top blocks should be placed near the nut screw, as in the photo).


  • Insert the metal pawls, making sure that the tips fit into the round holes of the crown (the crown is found in the ratchet).
  • Insert the handle into the hole on the ratchet and secure it with the throttle screw.


4. The pressing

  • Stand in front of the ratchet and grab it with both hands, set it in action by moving it forward and backward. This movement will cause the shifting in both sides of the upper part of the ratchet, (see photo).


  • The action exerted on the ratchet, allows the metal pawls to advance from the holes in which they have been inserted to the ones immediately following. This determines the downward movement of the rotation of the jack, thus pressing on the wood blocks, which lie on the grape pulp.
  • When the jack is lowered to the top of the edges of the cage, it is necessary to stop the action, in order to refill the cage with grapes.
  • Once you have finished the last pressing, bring the ratchet up (turning it counterclockwise), remove all wood blocks, remove the cage, pull out the pomace and clean thoroughly.

5. Double-speed ratchet (only for models from #40 and up)

  • The 40 diameter presses and up, have a double speed crown. There are 4 slots on the ratchet where to insert the metal pawls, two on one side and two on the other. Place the metal pawls in the holes as near as possible to the screw in order to obtain a quicker pressing. It is however, necessary to use the outer notches when lever requires excessive force.

Since 1958 it is the leading manufacturing press
