So I am pretty excited about using the Norwalk. I ordered the stainless steel version identical to the picture below. It should be coming in the next week or two. I had a hard time convincing my wife to make the investment of roughly $2,500 dollars understandably but I think further down the road she may soften to the purchase given usage. I am trying to take care of myself while I am young, and tough I definitely do not need a Norwalk to do this it does provide more means and motivation to do so.

Yikes! That's some serious iron.

I can't get past the price tag, though. For me the opportunity cost would be too high, I can think of too many other things for that cash that I need far worse (like a tractor, or an overhaul for my dead van). But I do understand that each of us in this world is at a different place on the curve of marginal utility per dollar of disposable income. And boy that looks like a lot of fun to have on your kitchen counter.

That is a serious machine. You can extract more juice and, more importantly, juice from herbs and medicinals that other machines just can't get.

I will be stuck with my shop press version for a while, that is simply not in my price point.

please update us on how you like the juicer.

we have had the talk about buying a norwalk, and just cant seem to pull the trigger on a $2500 juicer when my daily commuter car cost only $3000...

they do have some scratch and dent items for ~$2100 if i remember right, but even that is a bunch of money.

i think in 5 years, you will look back and it will be money well spent, as is the case with our vitamix and kitchenaid.

A wooden press I made using sail cloth to filter the pulp.
