Summary: It was great the first 5-6 uses... I haven't used it much and purchased the beginning of July. We just pulled this out to juice and the forward motor is dead. It will not work in forward...no response from the machine at all. Reverse works fine, but that won't get us juice. What a huge waste of valuable cash. I haven't contacted the company YET, as it was the day before Thanksgiving. I will try them tomorrow or Monday and update. I sure hope they are responsive!
Summary: I bought this juicer because I wanted to avoid Omega's service as I read bad reviews about it. But I'm not happy with the juicer. I gave it 2 stars because it does what it's supposed to do: it juices. But I don't think it does it well. I juiced carrots, apples, and oranges. The carrot pulp was very damp. I know that apples and oranges will be pretty wet, but even after running it a second time, both were very wet.

Summary: My Samson slow-masticating juicer with some 15 years under its belt finally kicked. Actually, the juicer is still going strong but the vegetable "presser cup" (??) finally cracked. No way to replace it that I know of, and I'm due for a new, updated juicer anyway. Was going to go with the Big Boss at Walmart, but this kit came with the extra nozzles and nut/seed-grinding capability--same as my Samson. I figured the $70 difference was worth it.
Outstanding machine I Wish I had bought one of these first.

Summary: This machine is wonderful. This one pulls nearly twice the juice out that our old non masticating juicer did. We used the same recipe that we always do (I understand different plants can be juicier) and we got about 45% more juice over all. Also clean up is less than a minute compared to the mess the old machine was. The waste product that comes out the front our dogs really enjoy and the rest is composted.
