    Anyone have a pic of their mounted Maxant 20 frame extractor? If so, please post.

    Thanks!

    I built a triangle base with casters on the bottom and it stays put even with a fair amount of imbalance to the machine. As mentioned, it does a little wiggle but stays in one spot.

    I have to jump on this thread so I can follow it I have the Maxant 20 frame extractor and I used it once and it was nuts I had such a tuff time of it I had never extracted in my life and never seen one in real life I extracted 15 frames took 5 hours got alittle over 100 pounds of honey and I learned to tango I was pretty stressed out by the time I was done.
    I have to build a frame for the beast by the time the flow is over .{just starting here}
    What I extracted was from dead outs from this past winter. So hope to find a way to tame this Hoping to have over fifty frame to extract this year all deeps we'll see.

    Is the consensus that an extractor will walk less with the castors than without them? My 3100P is just mounted to 1 & 1/8 plywood & it dances like crazy when a little out of balance.
    I have the 20 frame Maxant in route, Its about 75 miles away, & I'm tempted to just go pick it up.

    Fuzzy showed me the best way to mount an extractor. Have a plywood base but just set it on a moving dolly. It works great. The dolly absorbs the unbalanced movement, not your bearings and other internal connection points in your extractor so it saves on wear and tear. Minimal shaking and walking.

    I'm definately going to have to look into that moving dolly. I think I saw some at Lowe's the other day.

    Why not attach the casters directly to the legs.....it's a triangle. Will that work?
