I need to purchase a piece of equipment to render my clean wax capping's and not so clean wax renderings. I've been looking at the Maxant 3900 and checked out a couple of videos on youtube. It appears that its a simple design and that it works well separating the slum from the clean wax that can be drawn off through a cloth filter using the upper valve. We're only running 200 hives so I don't have a huge amount of wax capping's to melt and clean. I definitely want something that is easy to clean. I'm getting tired of melting wax in a large pot and then hand pouring it through a cloth into buckets. Looking for comments from those who might be using the Maxant melter. I have other Maxant equipment in use so I'm aware of their build quality.
