    Default Extractor purchase advise

    I'm a new bk, 1st year and i do believe i might be able to steal some honey in a few weeks.
    From what i've read it seems the maxant is a lifetime investment.
    Since Kellys offer for free shipping ended June 1st, where should i look next for the best price on a maxant 3100 delivered.
    Anyone aware of any good deals being offered?

    Thanks to all
    Rich

    Most people who buy their first extractor find a bigger better one uswed cheaper a year later. You might consider just looking for a used one. Maxant is a good machine, but a little bigger radial is nice.

    See if you can rent one from your club or borrow one from a local. I definitely went the "small, cheap and used" route first and it was fine. That little two-framer served me for many years, and it still my "loaner". Big and shiny has an attraction all its own though, and my Maxant is a true joy to use .

    Buy used, and don't shy away from a 20 framer if it comes along.
