    Default How to convert honey extractor from manual to powered

    I have the typical 2 frame stainless steel centrifical/manual extractor. I would like to convert it to powered because I have gone fron 2-6 hives. Is there a conversion kit out there? Your thoughts would be much appreciated.

    With 6 (or more) you're going to eventually want a bigger extractor. Cut your losses and move up.

    There are kits to convert BUT IMO you should think about upgradeing, I used a 3 frame untill I found a used power in a local trader paper for half the price of a new one, good luck.

    P.S. some folks use an electric drill to run a small extractor.
