I have a Maxant 3100h, and I used it for the first time and last time this season. After pulling deeps in the hot sun, having to uncap and then hand crank that thing many, many times that was a great lesson for me. I quickly told the wife we are upgrading to a motorized 20 frames "RADIAL". All hand crank is for the birds. The quality is...well is a Maxant right, no doubt about it, but if it does not have a motor on it, I don't want it no matter who made it or where it was made. Time is very important for me, so I can't wast it spinning a dogon extractor, I have too many frames to uncap. If I had to do it all over again I would start with the next size up with a motor and if possible auto-speed control.
