Honey Extracting Equipment

Buying honey extracting equipment is an investment. Ask yourself these questions to help determine what extractor is right for you:

  1. How many hives do you want 2 to 3 years from now? This is especially important if you are just getting started. The answer may cause you to scale up or down.
  2. Have you considered sharing an extractor, or borrowing one? Many small scale beekeepers team up come fall with extracting parties. Many hands make light work, and if you are sharing purchasing power you could scale up!
  3. Look at your operation to see if you have a bottleneck. An electric uncapping knife, stainless steel holding tank or bottling tank may speed up the process for you instead of an extractor.

Overall, Betterbee carries extractors for any sized apiary. Our honey extracting equipment is largely produced by Lyson in Poland. In particular, we’ve worked closely with product developers at Lyson to develop the 12 Frame Radial Extractor, available in a manual or motorized version.  We really think this is the ideal extractor for the hobbyist.
