I have a Green Star, put out by the makers of Green
Power. Bought it new, ordered online, I think it was $375. Has
magnets inside the 2 masticating, slow-rotating rods that are designed to
prolong freshness while maintaining nutrient integrity.
I like it a lot, but usually find myself making
'Boutenko style' juice in my $100 KitchenAid blender. That is, Blend the
item to be juiced with enough water to allow the mixture to turn over in the
blender, until a liquid 'mush' is created. Strain through a cloth bag made
for this purpose (sometimes called a 'nut milk bag'). At my house, I use a
panel cut from an old t-shirt, squeezing and wringing the cloth, with the pulp
inside, until relatively dry. Then I feed the pulp to my animals, or throw
it outside for compost.
Clean-up is also easy; I just rinse out the
blender, don't disassemble, skip the soap.
This works for grasses, weeds, herbs, etc, mixed
with whole lemons/apples/pears, or not. Whatever.
For used juicers, I did an Internet search and
there was a site where people could advertise their used juicers for sale.
I bet you could find it, too.

Am looking to buy a good grass juicer
as economically as possible. Would like to hear what are the best
juicers, and where are the best prices. Used is fine.
