Its a o.k. unit for the price.
If this is a long term investment, you may want to buy an American made extractor that will last

lol @ maxant. We have a brushy extractor that I bought from a fella who had paid for two houses slinging honey out of it. You can't argue that Brushy makes 'crap.' I think Maxant makes great stuff, I'm just too poor to buy nice new stuff from them! lol

For a little more you can move up to the 9-frame radial, which I own and can attest to it being a nice extractor. The compact takes only 4 mediums or shallows at a time! Don't know how many hives you run, but a 4-frame extractor will give you a workout. My advice: save up and buy the 9-frame.

Decide how you're gonna grow, and go from there. Budget everythign out with a good plan to have it pay for itself. You can find 4 frame extractors floating around for 100 bucks easy. Yea we run a 9. Manual forever, finally added a variable switch and a washer motor heh. Take that big business! Funny part? Motorizing it cost me a single jar of honey for my fabricator friend to get the shafts right. Now if I can only find a "cheap" solution to brass gear pumps...

On the note of 100 dollar extractor, shipping not included, I know where I could get you one. Not sure of the make, but the last one I got was maxant I think. PM me if you want one...

This is my first year beekeeping. I installed my two hives last spring and bought my Compact Extractor from Brushy Mountain back in December when the free shipping existed.

I hope to post to this thread in the coming months with a report.

I love my brushy mountain 9 frame radial with variable speed motor. Plenty of years of service better then the three frame extractor I was using that was about like a out of balance washing tub.
