Just over 2 kg is about 4.5 pounds.
1.5 litres is about 1.58 quarts.
And I can do the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs.

I just did this last night. Juiced 3 pecks in under two hours. Not exactly fast or easy but definitely a viable option for smaller batches. Apples were milled, then the still rather thick juice was poured into a fine straining bag I got from my HBS. Various squeezing and crushing of this bag resulted in a final volume of about 2 1/4 gallons of great tasting juice.
