This 3 frame manual honey extractor is the perfect entry extractor for a beginner beekeeper. The small extractor is extremely well built with a smooth spinning gear box that can spin both ways and has an included spinner break. This extractor holds 3 frames of any size tangentially for efficient spinning.
Only available for freight shipments and local pickup.
The built-in handle brake works just like your old huffy bike. Just spin it backwards and the basket stops. It's just that cool, just like you were cruising on your bike.
Features include a two year warranty on the whole honey extractor, 21 gauge 304 stainless steel drum, metal basket, free-spinning gearbox, and a smooth cranking assembly that only takes 3 easy turns to get the basket up to speed.
You won't find any nylon or plastic parts on the drum or inside the basket that can become brittle and break over time. 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 so light. We assure you this extractor with its thick 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 a tangential honey spinner, so frames will need to be flipped after each side is extracted. The basket will securely hold 3 deep, medium, or shallow frames
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, 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.
