A great initial investment for new beekeepers. It is economical and gets the job done. If you don't have a lot to invest in an extractor, this will hold you over till you can save your honey money for a more advanced type. This hand-cranked model is made of all plastic, except for a steel center shaft. Includes a plastic tank cover and honey gate. Holds two frames of any size.
Hint 1: Leave gate open a slight crack when extracting to prevent honey froth (air bubbles).
Hint 2: This extractor is tangential, meaning it can only extract one side of a frame at a time. The frame must be flipped manually to extract the second side.
If you click the "Product Specification" tab, we have provided an instruction sheet on how to properly insert medium and shallow frames for extraction.
