The whole motorized honey extractor has a two-year warranty, a 304 stainless steel drum, a metal basket, a free-spinning motor, and a top-mounted motor that can turn in different directions.
The separate metal-cased control box comes pre-assembled on the top of the extractor with waterproof connectors. The control box has a reverse and forward switch and a 0-10 multi-speed control dial and can control the speed from 0-345 revolutions per minute.
You won't find any nylon or plastic parts on the drum or inside the basket that can become brittle and break over time. This is the extractor you'll have until you outgrow it. The basket can spin both ways by hand to make adding and removing bee frames easier. The frame basket holds each frame securely in place with no wobble.
A feature that is difficult to notice online is the thickness of the metal and the overall weight of the extractor. A heavy, well-designed, and balanced extractor like this will be much easier to use than the cheaper, thin-walled extractors sold in other places.
The cheap extractors (like Vivo) will wobble and shake out the door because they are so light.
We assure you that this extractor, with its thick 21 gauge, 304 stainless steel and powder-coated metal, will be a much better experience for the beekeeper during their honey harvesting party.
This extractor is designed to be both a tangential and radial extractor. The basket will securely hold 12 medium or shallow frames radially, or it can hold 3 deep frames tangentially. When extracting deep frames, the 3 included deep frame holders slid into the basket without any necessary tools. In order to extract medium or shallow frames, these baskets are removed.
At the bottom of the drum is a stainless steel honey gate with an o-ring and thumb screw for allowing liquid honey out of the drum. Other features include a plexiglass top for watching the extraction process, heavy-duty powder-coated legs, no tools required for assembly, a standard 6 ft. 110 power cord, and an easy to clean finish.
The legs extend from the ground with a broad base that can be mounted to the ground or a platform to the top of the extractor for minimal wobbling while extracting.
