The apple pulper works fine. An old $10 waste disposal unit, taken apart and cleaned up and then reassembled. Now in its own collapsable stand. It can be lifted in and out for portability and sits in a small aluminium sink. After about the 8th apple the pulped up apples start sliding out the bottom tube. Each whole apple takes about 5-10 seconds to become mush. The pulping will be over in a few hours rather than the 2 days processing through the food processor. The WD unit must be easily 20+ years old and is solid so should handle a bit of abuse.
