Choosing the best Juicer machine

In today’s world where there is a lot of varieties when choosing the best juicing machines, quality and price come into play so as to obtain the best value for money. There a number of options available when it comes to juicers with different methods of extracting juice form vegetables and fruits.

Using the price as a guide might not be a very accurate guide as the ranges from low to quite high prices.  A costly juicer can claim to do a better job but this is not always true. Paying more might guarantee the extra features like extra feed chute which allows to feed large inputs without having to chop them first. However good juicers do poses these features though they are moderately priced. Sometimes you make your own juice instead of buying because of cost.

There is also the choice between centrifugal and masticating juicer. Centrifugal are more widely used and usually the most affordable choice. Masticating are known to be more expensive. Centrifugal juicers are known to work by cutting ingredients using spinning blades. The pulp is flinged to the pulp bin while the juice is filtered in the container.

They usually are designed with two speed options for hard and soft fruits and veg. A key advantage is their ability to juice quickly while requiring the need to chop the ingredients first. Masticating juicers are usually the more expensive options. They are mostly found in specialty kitchenware of online.

Masticating juicers works by pressing the fruits and vegetables through gears and squeezing the juice through perforated screens.  There are versatile as some can be used as coffee grinders or mincers or even for making pasta. Their advantage includes there low noise due to the operation model. The disadvantage can also be the slow operation.

The other parameter to check for the juicing machine is their ease in cleaning. It is usually a rule of thumb to clean the juicer as soon as possible while the juicing is done. Further delay will cause the remnants to dry up in the different crevices and becomes harder to clean. They usually have many parts for cleaning mostly about five. Some come with the cleaning brush hence a better choice to be considered.

There are several machines and field equipment necessary to ensure proper grooming of the baseball field excellent condition. The essential works might vary from simple maintenance after a match to more thorough and extensive maintenance and conditioning and sometimes a complete renovation of the field. The type of work will hence determine the choice of equipment.


A drag is a common field maintenance machine. It’s used for smoothening of skinned areas of infield.  There are several models of drags available. The common ones are steel, nail, and cocoa mat. Steel mesh is used in building some drags. The drags made from cocoa mats are used for finishing the field. The smooth appearance is imposed by the natural fiber.

There are several uses for tarps in the field maintenance. The common one is rain protection to the field and moisture retention in the home areas and mound when no one is using the field. It can also be used for turf protection during practice.

It’s important to cover the home plate areas and mound as quickly as possible when it starts raining. It’s suggested to use a plastic cover which is heavy possibly 6mm in thickness or use a nylon cover. If it’s very windy the tarp can get blown away that’s why it’s essential to have it as heavy as possible to keep it grounded. It should also be large enough that it overlaps the grass.

Rakes play a key role in the field. There are several type of rakes as per the purpose. The Garden rake is used in dry areas for deeper raking and for material mixing into the clay. For clays smoothing we use the smoothing board rake. After each game it may be necessary to rake soil and clay from the grass edge. The leaf or fan rake becomes handy in this instance. Plastic rake is the best type of fan rake and metal fans are not recommended. The batter’s box and home plate are used by the catchers and batters needs conditioning after games and practice.  As essential as the batting grip due to baseball gloves so is the good footing necessary to prevent injury from slips. A rake comes in handy to expose the loose material from the batter box. This can then be moisten, tramped and covered by a tapauline.
