MannLake 18/9 extractor
I just purchased this extractor from MannLake: http://www.mannlakeltd.com/beekeepin...es/page98.html and as it turns out it doesn't fit 9 deep frames like advertised, it easily fits 12. I ran it last night and was pretty happy with the performance however the motor gets hot after about 30 minutes of use. To be expected I suppose, and perhaps it's heating up due to overloading. I think I'll keep running it that way until I burn up the motor and then replace it with a higher horse power motor. Anyone else used this extractor or have any input on it?
