Words from our Pomodoro Residente Esperto di Premere “Resident tomato press expert”
“The Fabio Leonardi MR0 is great tomato miller for households with larger tomato gardens and smaller commercial applications. The MR0 has the same construction as other Fabio Leonardi tomato millers and is offered in both a uncovered version and a covered version.
The Fabio Leonardi MR0 features a 1/2 horsepower motor. The MR0 features the same mounting point as the MR9 and MR7 motor units. This is a great feature of the Fabio Leonardi line of tomato millers.
The MR0 can either be paired with the SP3 or SP5 tomato milling attachments. We recommend you pairing your MR0 motor unit with the SP3 tomato milling attachment as the production level of that milling attachment closely matches the output levels of the motor unit. The SP3 tomato milling attachment has a neck opening of 2 and 1/4 inches in diameter. The screen measures in at 5 and 1/2 inches in length and 2 and 1/2 inches in diameter at the base of the tomato miller. The SP5 tomato milling is slightly larger and has a neck opening of 2 and 3/4 inches in diameter. The screen is 6 and 3/4 inches long and 3 inches in diameter. The SP5 tomato milling attachment was designed for high levels of production.
Both of these attachments are made from cast iron and stainless steel. The tomato feed spiral is made from cast iron and the tomato milling screen is made from stainless steel. During your first run on you Fabio Leonardi MR0 you will notice metal shavings in your processed food. This is due to the spiral and screen forming a tight fit. We recommend that you use old tomatoes or wet bread during your first run to capture the metal shavings so you can throw them out. After your first run you will have to lubricate your tomato milling attachment with olive oil before you use it as the tomatoes haven’t reached the screen yet.
One unique feature of the Fabio Leonardi line of tomato milling attachments is that they use a spring to add constant pressure on the tomato feed spiral. This is to ensure that you get the most tomato juice and meat from each tomato during your production run.
Also you will notice that there is no gasket between the tomato milling screen and body of the attachment. This is because rubber gaskets can easily become contaminated after a period of use and can also become brittle. Fabio Leonardi recognized this and designed the catch trough to sit under this connection and catch and juice that leaks out. When you attach the screen to the body of the tomato milling attachment, it rotates in a counter-clockwise motion. This is due to the tight fit of the spiral and screen and to counter act the rotational force of the spiral. As the spiral turns it will tighten the screen to the unit.
Assembly of the Fabio Leonardi MR0 is very simple. To align the driveshaft, leave the tomato milling screen attached loosely. This will allow you rotate the feed spiral to the correct position to align it with the motor unit. There is also a locking bar on the motor unit that will need to be aligned also. Once everything is aligned insert the tomato milling attachment and rotate upwards.
The MR0 motor unit is also compatible with the TC8 meat grinder attachment. This meat grinder shares the same construction qualities of the SP3 an SP5 tomato milling attachments.
The Fabio Leonardi MR0 tomato milling machine is a perfect choice for houses with larger tomato gardens and commercial applications where the level of production needed is not that high. Fabio Leonardi tomato milling machines are built from the highest quality material available and have been built that way for nearly 100 years.
