    Default Took my new MAXANT L1400PL out for a spin

    Here are some pictures of our new extractor in action.

    Observations:
    • Heavy gauge steel used throughout. Very sturdy and stable
    • The legs alone felt heavier than the old two frame extractor I used last year
    • Very quiet.
    • Very stable and well balanced. The frames have to be loaded badly out of balance to induce any rocking or vibration
    • Excellent value. A high quality product





    Some shots of the interior as the frames are loaded.







    Slowly engaging the clutch and increasing the speed.









    The honey streaming off the frames.



    And the final product.

    Great pics. I have the same unit and will try it out in a week or two. Any tips you can provide will be helpful! (What size blocks did u use for the legs?

    The legs are each sitting on two 50 lb plates from my weightlifting rack (real fancy, hi-tech stuff there ).

    As far as tips go, I can't really add much to the instructions that come with the extractor. Try and keep the frame weights even around the carousel, but it's pretty forgiving in that department due to the overall weight. Just back the clutch out all the way, switch on the motor, and then gradually dial the clutch back in. You'll get a feel for it very quickly.

    Assembly was caveman simple: just a couple of nuts and bolts on each leg.

    I think you're going to be very favorably impressed.
