It’s a Rapanelli Mini 70, purchased from JB Macmahon in 2012 and maintained by their ex-staff since the company folded.
All the vendor documentation, including operator guides, wiring and mechanical diagrams can be provided. There are also a few spares, the stator for the mono pump, a set of decanter drive belts, and a proximity switch for the kneading tank. It has a Rapanelli field upgrade providing a sump for the mono pump, which avoids blockages in this area. We have replaced the digital controller and sensor for the rev counter in 2016.
Spares are available from the manufacturer in Italy.
The press has done a total 404 hours and we’ve put some 16 tonnes through it in the five seasons we’ve used it.
We’ve finally finished cleaning it up after the madness of selling up in Melbourne, moving house and unpacking, not to mention Christmas/New Year distractions 🙂 Photos attached, it’s come up really well. We’ve also tested it again today and all the stages are working as expected.
