Has anyone used, bought, or had any experience with the Rotoblast H- 1000 extractor by King? It comes with a stand and has all steel cranking mechanisim, is stainless steel every where the frame or honey touches. It only slings 2 frames at a time, but @ $309.00 with no shipping it seems to be a good buy for the money!! Any input appreciated.

Obviously no one knows about this one. I would like for some to look at it on the website and give me their opinions. Machinery and steel I know about, but know next to nothing about extractors.

Manual non-reversable 2-frame extractor with metal gears. A hive or 6 and you're in business. It looks to be of reasonable quality. You'll quickly outgrow this if you get more hives than that. I've got an old Kelly 2 frame reversable and 12 hives. It was no problem until this years extraction. Now I know I need something larger.

I'm not sure where it's actually made though. By the name of the company (King, North America) and the fact it doesn't actually say where it's made I get an Asia vibe as to where it's produced.

$309 for an extractor that only does two frames, one side at a time is a lot of money spent for little work done. I spent $375 for my 6 frame radial. Better deals are out there for the money or just a little bit more.
