How do fill you jars with honey? I'm thinking to build a filling mashine but i want something lowcost.  grin
The main problem is what kind of pump to use and how to regulate it?

As it comes out of the extractor I run it through the strainer into half gallon jars. I will then use a funnel and pour it into my bears or mason jars. No pump needed.
You can get pumps from Dadant or Gainger. The pumps are equal to hydralic pumps because of the viscosity of honey.

How much honey are we talking about? I know people that use a bucket with a gate-valve and some bottle from a drum with a gate valve-I use a heated tank with a valve -this is a good pump because you dont have to heat the honey-http://www.mannlakeltd.com/catalog/page14.html

Extract then immediately strain into a bucket with gate, then after it settles a few days, or more, I just pour it in what ever container I'm using.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

And then store in the freezer so that they don't all crystallize immediately.

Sure, it is a bit of work when filling honeybears, but unless you are planning on doing 1000's of containers it is probably the most economical.

Otherwise, if you are talking commercial, there are big machines that do all that for you.
