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.

About amandabailey

1997 the year I stepped into the Olive World in Australia. Since then I have had the privilege of working with many specialist researchers from all facets within the Industry from Australia and overseas. I am passionate about olives & our industry. I dedicate my work to enhance the production of groves (in all aspects of olives) through to commercial production. As founder of The Olive Centre, I wanted to be able to take out much of the guess work that growers in the earlier days faced in the trialling of equipment for the application of their use in Olives. This is the area I specialise in today in the Equipment, Machinery & Advice and provide a One-Stop-Shop to all Olive Growers. I have maintained a working relationship with well over 200 suppliers in order to bring the most up-to-date and cost effective equipment available today. All our equipment & machinery has been trialled in the commercial application of olives and through this our team at The Olive Centre hopes to ... help you achieve the maximum from your grove. Only through working together can we achieve a viable industry.
