Back in 1966, founder of the Boston Hippocrates Health Institute – Ann Wigmore — commissioned the Sundance Industries company to design an efficient and highly effective industrial wheatgrass juicer machine. Since then the Sundance company has been manufacturing and designing many variations of the very first Wheateena Wheatgrass Juice Extractor.
All Wheateena wheatgrass juicer are 100% manufactured in the USA.
With a little background out of the way, let’s look more closely at this Wheateena Workhouse, which score’s a top slot on my list of the best industrial wheatgrass juicers.
Wheateena Workhorse II
The Commercial Grade Wheatgrass JuicerFeatures at a glance:
Speed: 3 and a 1/2 ounces a minute for the majority of grain grasses, herbs, leafy greens and sprouts.
Motor: 91 Revolutions per minute, 130″ per pounds torque
All components: precision machined, made with cast iron and hot dip tin plating.
Stainless steel chassis houses the motor.
Warranty: 1 year commercial use, 3 years home use.
If you need a wheatgrass juicer for a commercial setting, then this beauty – the Wheateena Workhorse – should be on your short list. And a ‘workhorse’ it is, munching grass all day.
Proven world-wide, this machine is a common site at Health Institutions and Juice Bars. Wheat grass juice is filtered effectively with its fine-hole strainer, its a breeze to juice greens, herbs, sprouts, and other types of veggies by switching over filters to a large-hole strainer. Nut butters, seed and bean pastes are other health creations permitted by this juicer.
An important feature to point out is the self-feeding ability. This is a major factor for commercial applications, where time and energy is of the essence, and you don’t want to waste time and effort using a plunger. This makes for a more graceful juicing process.
