I have made up my mind to invest in a juicer and I know nothing about them. If you a have a juicer, do you mind letting me know if you like it and the brand name. Trying to get an idea of the best juicer to buy that is not over the top expensive.

Following this post because I would like recommendations too
My husband had cancer and was on chemo. Even the smell of food cooking made him sick. I bought a juicer (don't remember the name brand) and made fresh juice for every meal. He could tolerate the juice, drank it, felt stronger, and actually gained over 20 pounds during the six months on chemo. If your goal is to gain weight, any juicer will work for you.
Juice is mainly sugar. Your body can absorb it and turn it to fat much more quickly than just eating fruit. Because the solid fruit and fiber are gone the sugar goes to fat storage. If your goal is to lose weight, don't juice.

I had no idea! I just thought juicing was healthy and never even looked into it. Thank you for this information.
I agree completely that drinking juice is not a good choice for anyone trying to lose weight.
But in case you still want to get a juicer (e.g., maybe you're going to use the juice in cooking, or to prepare juice for others), I suggest you check how easy the machine will be to clean, and whether you want it to automatically remove the pulp/fibre.
