Default Powered Cider Presses?

We are after a powered Cider Press - any suggestions?

We've looked at the Hydropress type and like the look of them. Any other suggestions for a Press that one just pushes a button and a motor does the work would be useful.

A hydropress is the most forgiving and easy to set up, building a cheese takes time/skill and it can go wrong if its not set right.

Tried the hydro last year, it's efficient but slow and awkward. Again hired an electric hydraulic version, similar to the vigo one but from an Italian manufacturer, it was awesome. It will be our next step up but probably year after next when more of our trees have matured.
