Very nice. I have the same destemmer. Yours is either new or you take much better care of yours than I do. I’d be very careful putting glass carboys on cement. It’s crazy how it only takes a tiny point and it will crack the carboy

They were only there for a day to settle.
First year I moved from hand crank to motor. Much nicer!!
I notice my motor will hum when starting from time to time. Does yours? Not sure if it is doing that because the load was too great with stems or grapes or the motor is bad.

The motor doesn't have a lot of torque, so I always make sure it is running before I throw grapes in the hopper. Once it is going, I can fill the hopper to the brim, but I makes sure it is empty if I turn it off.
