This beginner friendly tangential honey extractor features a side-mounted handle providing greater comfort than other hand crank extractors without sacrificing efficiency. Made of high quality acid-resistant stainless steel, this machine will last for many years and works best for beekeepers with anywhere from one to a dozen hives.

A unique cast steel worm gear drive allows the basket to freewheel when you stop cranking, without the handle spinning. The gearbox features a brake that is applied by gentle backwards pressure on the crank, similar to a cruiser bicycle, to slow the basket down when it is time to flip or remove the frames. The tangential extraction quickly removes honey from each side of the frame; just flip the frames mid-cycle to extract from the second side.
