The best just got better! The ALL-NEW Sasquash 2.5 is the new leader in rosin presses. Capable of 25 tons of pressure, this new machine takes the design of the compact Sasquash M1 with the capabilities of the Sasquash 2.0.
When yield matters, the Sasquash 2.5 can press an incredible 2 ounces given its large 10" x 5" plates. With Sasquash, production is the name of the game!
*Optional foot pump requires an air compressor. Sold separately
Which Material Should I Use?
Yields range significantly and depends largely on the quality of the materials used.
*Adequate application of pressure is important to achieve optimal yields and these figures are based on averages tests. Results may vary and depend heavily on your material as well as the operator.
Which Micron Bag To Use?
Depending on your material, the proper micron bags are suggested but results will always vary.
For kief, dry sift, hash, and bubble hash, use a 36 micron or 72 micron bag.
72 micron rosin bags will offer higher yields compared to 36 micron rosin bags, but the 36 micron bags will provide the highest quality product.
For flower, trim, and shake, use a 115 micron or 90 micron bag.
You will get the highest yield from a 115 micron rosin bag compared with a 90 micron rosin bag, but the 90 micron bags will give you more filtration and slightly higher quality product.
36 micron - Most filtration available, highest quality output rosin for use with small and finer material
72 micron - High level of filtration, increased yields over 36 micron when pressing smaller and finer material
90 micron - Higher level of filtration for use with flower, trim, and shake rosin pressing
115 micron - Ideal level of filtration and high yielding for use with flower, trim, and shake rosin pressing
What Temperature Is Ideal?
There is no magic number for how much you need to press but most people use the formula of press pounds/plate surface area.
A 10-ton press = 20,000 lbs. If you have a 3"x5" plate = 15 square inch.
Hence, 20,000/15 = 1,333 PSI
*These numbers serve as a guide only. Results will always vary depending on temperature and material as well the press you choose.

What would be the ideal temp and time when pressing?
Thanks for the question!
The ideal temperatures should be the following:
Lower temperatures (200°F- 300°F) = more flavor/terpenes, less yield, end material is more stable (shatter-like consistency)
Higher temperatures (300°F- 350°F) = less flavor/terpenes, more yield, end material is less stable (sap-like consistency)
Time when pressing:
Flower = 15-60 seconds
Good Quality Sift/Bubble = 30-90 seconds
Average to Low Quality Sift/Bubble = 30-90 seconds
(These are just rough numbers and your results may vary)

What other equipment is needed other than the air compressor?
Great question! The air compressor is only needed for the optional foot pump. If you decide to get either the electric or hand pump, there is no need for any other equipment.
What is the best air compressor to use with the press?
Thanks for the question.
Generally, any size air compressor will work as long as it has the capability of 110 psi.
That being said, there are a few recommendations:
$99 - Porter-Cable 6 Gal. 150 PSI Portable Air Compressor
$299 - Husky 30 Gal. 175 psi High Performance Quiet Portable Electric Air Compressor
$399 - California Air Tools 15 Gal. 2.0 HP Ultra Quiet and Oil-Free Air Compressor
$439 - Husky 30 Gal. 155 psi Ultra-Quiet Portable Electric Air Compressor
I've been using the Sasquash for the past month. It has taken a bit to dial in the optimal amount of kief to process at a time, with the optimal temperature, pressure, and duration to get the best extraction, but now that we've done that, it is working well for our small commercial application.
There are a severak things I would point out: it didn't come with a pressure gauge, which I would strongly encourage folks to buy; there were no instructions on the temperature controls, but that was fairly easy to figure out; the cost of squash bags can add up quickly if you don't optimize the amount of kief or flower in each bag.
I have tried most of the other oil extraction techniques and this meets our needs better than others I have tried.
