Layers upon layers of apple mash, cider cloths and racks all make a "cheese". The whole stack slides under the hyraulic press which squeezes the stack. Fresh cider flows through the cloths to be caught in a pan under the press.
Our new horizontal "accordian" press. Bags made of cider cloth hang between plastic racks and are filled with mash from the pipe above. The hydraulics squeeze the layers together horizontally.
