    Sounds like something one of the charities helping people in the Third World might know about.

    Why not simply ask the manufacturers if they have any customer endorsements?

    But "customer reviews" are often written by the manufacturers themselves anyway! (Now, how do I know that?:)).

    I had a very similar one (at least it looked exactly the same), ordered directly from China for half the price on amazon. An ok machine, but 3-5 hours of advertised continuous work time is an exaggeration - it overheats in about 30 mins to 1 hr. Suitable to press oil for own needs, but definitely not if you are thinking on a bigger scale. A big disadvantage is that you cannot just load the feeder container with seeds/nuts and leave it to process, you have to drip-feed it manually. I eventually grew tired of it and gave it away to a friend.
    Here's a video of a guy showing how to operate it. It is not in English, but otherwise pretty self-explanatory. I can confirm that it is how it works in real life.

    Get as big a press as you can afford as a slow process .
    Cake good for animal feed or burn on fire.
    Cold pressed rape oil best to fry your chips in then after by the process of transesification make biofuel to run your car or tractor .
