Juicer/blender to use whole tomato for juice?

Hello! I am thinking about making tomato juice this year and I would like to use the entire tomato. I have Early Girls and if my polish linguist survives the EB I will add some for thickening since hubby likes thick juice. I wanted to avoid peeling and seeding and thought maybe there is a blender that will pulverize these adequately for a thick juice? My MIL has a Vitamix she swears by, but she lives in another state so I cannot try hers out. I thought I would get opinions if anyone uses a blender/juicer in this fashion and how does your machine hold up?

How well do any fad machines hold up? Six months to a year for any of them.

My wife is happy with her masticating juicer (Aeitto by Haier). Neither of us can decode your acronyms...

I *LOVE* Early Girls, I grow them every year.

You need a juicer with a strainer if you want to make juice, not a blender if you want to use the whole tomato, otherwise you are going to have a tomato sauce.

I make juice, sauce and paste every year, and depending on what you expect the end product to be will dictate what appliance to use or how to clean/prepare the tomatoes. The Vitamix will make tomato sauce from whole tomatoes. It will not strain out the seeds or skin, which are omitted from juice, well omitted from drinkable juice. ?:)

@berkeman
how much time do you have this juicer?
My wife just got it a couple months ago. She used a Jack Lalanne juicer for at least 10 years, but made the switch because this juicer does a better job.

I like pulp in my juice.

Do you like seeds and skins and stems?

I can eat a whole tomato with the seeds and skin, but will cut out the stem if it is too woody.
I guess I am like the OP - wondering how to juice a tomato whole.

Funny isn't it. Or even irrational.

I think it's beneficial for human health

The HYUNDAI HYC-P2105 chopper seems chopping tomatoes quite well, one big or two small tomatoes cut in several pieces , some garlic added too. Well, with some big tomatoes, the juice needs some filtering, to remove the tough fragments. The chopped skin pieces are tiny, I never noticed them in the product, nor any garlic pieces.

- actually, this chopper is a good little (200W) cheap blender if you do not load it with nuts or other tough things. It chops dried apricots producing nice jam, too!

An ordinary liquidiser does the job for me, the same one has lasted a good few years being used several times per week.

I don't strain it though, it ends up as gazpacho or, more often, salmorejo
