    Default Best extractors?

    I am looking at buying an extractor to harvest 15 or less hives, and all of my supers are mediums. What are some things to look for or even a good brand or model to buy? I would prefer beeks and not salesmen answer this question. For obvious reasons.

    I purchased a maxant, a little more money up front but I've never been sorry. Quality stainless, American made.

    It all depends on what you are looking for built or best built for a certain price. Maxant are the best built I won't argue that if you have the cash to cough up. I have the 6/3 Mann Lake it served me well plenty strong. I got it because the price was right and it would do what I need for now. Later if I get my own land and expand, I don't have that much in it (for an extractor). I can sell it and get a bigger one. If I was going commercial, or knew exactly how many hives I was planning to stay with, maybe maxant.
    All beekeepers can agree on one thing, and that one thing is, that all beekeepers can't agree on one thing.

    I said in my original post that I didn't want sales pitches! How much are you all getting paid!
