    Default Anyone own the 18/9 MannLake extractor OR dislike it??

    Hi again,

    Thinking of getting the 18/9 frame motorized extracor from Mann Lake. I dont want to make a mistake on brand so thought I would ask.

    Cool Mann Lakes 18/9 extractor

    Well I had one and sold it. The reason was I am not as young as I used to be, and I just wore out cranking it. I think it would be great if you got the motored one. I just had the hand crank and you have to crank a radial extractor a long time. I found a Kelly two frame reverasalbe on ebay that I bought, like I had many years ago. (I had been in bees and then sold everything and got back into it) If you are going to hand crank only, get a two or four frame taginal, not a radial.

    All radial extractors need motors...so they can run 15 minutes or so.
    That is my 2 cents,
    Mike
