    Default Brushy Mountain Extractor motor

    Now that Brushy Mt is out of buisness, does anyone know where a replacement motor for the 9 frame extractor can be found?

    My suggestion would be to check the make and model of the manufacturer's tag on the motor that came with the extractor and then just google it online. Brushy Mountain didn't make motors. Off the top of my head Grainger's is usually a good starting point.

    Keep in mind that the motors were manufactured in Europe and are designed for 50 hz not 60hz. Not sure about 220 volts vs 110. Brushey converted the electrical system after they received them here.

    My understanding is that Brushy Mtn extractors were manufactured by the Italian company Saf Natura:

    You can try contacting Saf.

    Or, you might find that other USA vendors are selling Saf products, perhaps importing them directly. It may be that you could buy an appropriate motor even though it doesn't come from Brushy. For instance, it may by worth contacting B&B Honey Farm:

    Most large manufactures will build equipment with the right motor for where it is being sent to/specified by the customer. The original motor may have been a 60Hz motor wired for 120V or it may have a 90VDC motor with a speed controller. If you find the manufactures motor tag you should be able to get any other motor with the same power, speed, mounting options, and output shaft diameter and swap it in.

    I have the 9 frame manual crank. I bought a lathe motor kit from penn state for $120. Works perfectly. Comes with motor & speed controller. Had to fab up a bracket but that was easy. Painted it green to match trim. Looks like factory. Sure beats the $495 that BM wanted.
