SWIENTY 4 FRAME RADIAL EXTRACTOR
« on: April 05, 2006, 03:13:44 PM »
:?:  I am fascinated by the size and shape of the new Swienty radial extractor as adertised in the new Betterbee catalog. ( 36 inches in diameter by 8 inches high, and only 48 lbs) It would fit perfectly in the "honey house" area of my garage.

Has anybody here tried it. It is so radical I am afraid to order it ( It would be my first extractor) Any comments , good or bad would be apprecated.

It won a bunch of awards.  The frames lay flatways in the extractor with the top bars to the outside.  It was designed to work with top bar combs from a top bar hive, but looks like it would work well with any kind of frames.
