Suzanne, thank for the info. Mine is called the Ultimate Power Juicer. Had I known there was a nicer one I might have sprung for that, as generally it is worth it.
Thanks for the suggestion about running the pulp through again. The pulp on mine was pretty dry too but would not hurt to get out more of the juice.
I eat a lot of raw fruits and veggies too but thought this would add something "different" and new for a change.
