What is the difference between a manual and a semi-automatic?

The manual machines are the traditional method with the Ram Arm (standard option). All machines (except the 1.5HP 120V machine ) can be converted from a Ram Arm to a semi-automatic machine by just adding on a semi-automatic kit. The semi-auto is an air powered drop-on attachment. Note: a compressed air source ( 2+ gallon air compressor) is required and will need to be furnished by the customer.

What do I need in order to run the semi-automatic?

We suggest a 2+ gallon air compressor that is capable of 1.9 CFM. New quiet-compressor technology is the best option for compact kitchens. Our recommendation is the Makita Quiet Series (MAC210Q). These can be purchased at any local hardware store.

Do you offer financing?

There is commercial financing available. Please click on the following link or find the option on the menu bar at the top of the page.

Is the machine easy to clean?

The machine is very easy to clean. All of the food contact components come off with no tools being required. The aluminum food contact components (top & bottom hopper) will need to be hand washed while the rest of the parts are dishwasher safe. Please see the video in this link to see the disassembly and assembly process or refer to the user manual.
