My mom usually makes 6 1L glasses of juice every morning in one run (no joke, I measured the glasses to find out how much they hold O_o), and constantly snaps the handle off the juice machine because if everything doesn't line up right and it resists she responds by using force until it listens.
Yes, it takes a while, requires loads of apples, and makes a mess. The motor itself seems to handle it fine though. 50 pounds of apples in 1 day I can't imagine, but my parents have 2 refrigerators and one is just full of fruits and vegetables to get juiced and gets refilled 1-2 times a week so the thing takes a lot.
