The thing that might be missing from your crushpad.
This American Made, portable, adjustable receiving hopper is useful in several ways.
The most important point: It improves the quality of your must.
Providing anyone's destemmer with a constant, metered feed of fruit enables you to dial in the ideal speed to bring out the best possible result.
As the forklift driver dumps 1/2 ton bins into this hopper, you will marvel at the time and labor you are saving by not raking or dumping lugs into the destemmer.
It's also good for putting whole clutter fruit or fermented reds into your press.
