Recommendations for (carrot) juicer

I am in the market for a new juicer and am looking for something that will do a good job with organic carrots.

Ideally, the juicer would be:
1. able to extract most of the juice and nutrition out of the vegetables
2. good with carrots although I may use other vegetables
3. not contain parts that are likely to leach chemicals into the juice

Does anyone have any recommendations? I have an old Braun juicer that is getting tired so I thought now might be a good time to replace and/or upgrade.

Thanks.

How about a masticating juicer? A family member swears by it.

I've heard Omega is the brand to get for juicers, although there are so many models, it's kind of overwhelming.

Whats important is to ensure that if it has a jug or collector for juice on the side, so that it has a good/decent spout type to let juice fliw properly into the jug instead of it falling on the side/counter and making a mess

Hopefully juicers have improved on this

From my preliminary research, I am finding myself interested in an Omega masticating juicer. My only concern at this point is finding one that doesn't have plastic parts that will leach chemicals into the juice. Even BPA-free parts are often toxic so if I can find one that isn't in the thousands of dollars but uses stainless steel parts, this would be ideal.
