Trying to decide between two extractors:
The 12 frame Lyson extractor from Betterbee (model W229E)
The 8/20 frame Lyson extractor from Blue Sky Bee Supply (model W230):
My honey supers are mediums. I don't ever anticipate having deep honey supers, so that doesn't factor in. Currently have 5 hives, all should produce honey this year. Plan to grow in coming years.
I also have 5 young children, and have many constraints on my time. Leaning toward the 8/20 just because it'll spin more at once.
The 12 frame is slightly cheaper. Betterbee has free shipping. I could drive to Blue Sky to save on shipping costs (other than gas to make the trip).
