small extractor
« on: May 19, 2009, 12:09:58 PM »
Looking for a small extractor 2-10 frame, must handle deeps, radial or tangenital.  As I make splits I want to be able to provide the new queens a few empty frames she can lay in ASAP.  I'm located in central florida.

I wish they gave more details on this, but it looks like a fair deal if all it does is a couple shallows.

Thanks, I saw that one.  Plastic kind of scares me a little.  I am hoping maybe I could find a used stainless one.  Trying to save a few bucks for something I am going to employ in the field as I work making the splits, I am going to be purchasing a big extractor (60 frame or so) later this year.  Thanks for the info.

I've got a Walter Kelly stainless 2 frame reversable baskets extractor that comes with a Walter Kelly cappings spinner basket and a lid so that the extractor can also be used as a holding tank. I think the total cost if you purchased new would be over 800 dollars. I will sell mine for 450.00. I'm in Atlanta but will be in Brunswick, Ga. this coming week. Call me if you're interested. 404-932-1174. Andy

Just wondering, does anyone know if the plastic extractor can handle deep frames as well as shallows?

I know it isn't that great, but I'm a poor college student, and $120 might be as much as I can spend .....
