Solid press. Heats up fast. Looks good. Produces!
This is a great press. Solidly made and well constructed. Less expensive than anything that even comes close to the same size and quality. Having a separate pump means that you don't have to hang on to the entire piece of equipment when you're putting pressure to the plates. This also allows me to have the pump lower than the press, which lets me to apply more pressure because I'm pushing down. I would not want to have to put the same amount of pressure on a device that had the jack built in, because you would have to hold on to the entire unit to keep it from moving and therefore reducing the amount of pressure you can put on it. Having a pressure gauge is in my opinion a must. Most other similar presses do not have a pressure gauge, and certainly not in this price range.
The plates heat up fast. 1200 watts is a lot of power and keeps the plates at temperature very easily. Delivery was quick and easy. No taxes is also a plus. I purchased a kitchen mixer cover from Amazon for $15 that fits a 6-8 quart mixer, and it fits perfectly with the PID controller nestled between the front legs to keep the dust off.
So far, I have seen nothing comparable. I have nothing negative to say about this press at all and I am very happy with the purchase. I would recommend it to anybody. Happy pressing!
Heats up quickly and maintains temperature precisely, always dead on the money even during a press, all Dabpress equipment, accessories, etc… are all extremely well built and extremely well priced, compared to other companies that over charge by hundreds and thousands, so do yourself a favor and go with Dabpress
P.S. GROW YOUR OWN PRESS YOUR OWN KNOW WHAT YOUR GETTING
You're not going to be able to match price with quality with any other press than dabpress. I am beyond satisfied with this 12 ton press. I had been using the nugsmasher mini for several months but I wanted to be able to ramp up production considerably and this press was just what I needed. Thanks Dabpress.
