    I guess the fat man in the red suit no longer likes me...
    Very pretty, still window shopping IRS tax return time for me.

    Change your property to farm since you are a bee farmer and use that tax credit for a Maxant. The fat man in the red suit has a tough time stuffing it down the chimney. Honey is sticky and does not slide well.

    Ok, show off time. I received my 1400 last year; direct from Maxant. It makes short work of extracting.
    I fabricated my own legs they are stainless steel.

    Ok Jim Stevens....is that a 5 gallon bucket? If so, where did you get legs long enough? The legs that came with mine are too short to fit any 5 gallon bucket beneath the gate....

    That is why I put the wheels and feet on mine so it gets above a 5 gallon bucket and strainer. Like the homemade legs. Nice job. Saw the picture and thought how did he get that color mine are red.

    I think Maxant wants you to buy the package with the pump etc. http://www.maxantindustries.com/pdfs/packages.pdf.

    Jim,
    You are a showoff!
    We just made a change to the legs and added more length to get a bucket under there easily!

    Eastside,
    I do like the wood base with the wheels. I bet it makes moving your extractor a breeze! I had to get the wife too help move ours across the shop.

    The bucket;
    Look close at the 5gal bucket, does it look a little tall?... it is. I cut the top portion off a 5gal bucket to use as a spacer above the Honey bucket. This prevents the SS strainer from setting in the Honey below.

    The Legs;
    I had my buddy’s prop up the extractor above a 5 gal bucket with the strainer in place. I determined what dimension worked best. I then got some stainless steel una-strut (also called Superstrut) 1 5/8th x 1 5/8th and cut it to length, then cut angles in each leg and TIG welded them. Maxant had the holes laid out and drilled. I used SS nuts and bolts to fasten
    the legs onto the extractor. Walla!

    Maxant makes a top grade extractor.

    People can full with the rest BUT when you want the best go with Maxant.

    Jake,
    I don’t mind if you use my leg setup for inspiration.

    I do like Jim's idea of cutting the top off of one bucket to add enough space for a filter...allowing you to completely fill the bucket below but if the legs already aren't long enough for a standard bucket......

    You could always fit a bucket under it, with the addition of a strainer it wasnt possible.
    Sure thing Fuzzy.

    Not sure where you get your buckets but mine wouldn't...at least without the use of a crowbar. I had to mount mine on wooden blocks...even without a strainer.
