This 9 frame electric honey extractor has been our workhorse honey extractor for a long time. This size is excellent for a brand new beekeeper to have as they grow their apiary. The small diameter drum allows the beekeeper to hold 3 deep frames tangentially or 3 medium or shallow or deep frames tangentially plus 6 shallow or medium frames radially. This extractor will spin 9 medium or shallow frames at the same time.
Features include a two year warranty on the whole motorized honey extractor, 304 stainless steel drum, metal basket, free-spinning motor, and a multi-directional top-mounted motor.
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. You'll have this extractor until you outgrow it, and it scales very well from the beginner to the serious hobby beekeeper. 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 without any 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 light. With its thick stainless steel and powder-coated metal, we assure you that this extractor 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 6 medium or shallow frames radially and 3 medium or shallow frames tangentially. Or it can extract 3 deep frames tangentially when needed.
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 foot 110 power cord, and easy to clean finish.
The legs reach 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.
