I'm thinking I want to purchase a honey extractor and really want to know how I should attack it? I've currently got 3 hives, one only will produce honey this season (just starting now for me in South Eastern Australia) however I anticipate increasing my hive numbers slowly over the next couple of years and realistically feel I could have somewhere from 6 - 8 on an ongoing basis.
What sort of extractor should I go for? I'm leaning toward stainless steel but not sure if I should just go with a 2 frame, go for a 4 frame or even if I should be looking for a manual (which I could possibly retro fit a motor to) one or an electric one.
Any advice given would be greatly appreciated,
