Now's your opportunity to get that 60 framer that we all dream of..."But Honey, you said I could get one...!"

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Oooooooooh no!  Just go with the Brushy Mountain 9 frame with the honey tank.  That honey tank is awfully handy for Strawberry wine.  I used the holding tank for mead and wine making.  It's proved to be a lot more fun than all that Jam I used to freeze.  Plus,  the procedes the extra tank usage makes honey extracting seem to just fly by!   grin

It won't be any less messy, but if it makes her happy... I'd get a minimum of an 18 frame.  I'd get a maximum of a 20.  Either will fit through your kitchen door.

I wouldn't waste my money on anythng less than an 18 frame.  Actually I didn't.  I waited 28 years to buy an extractor and I bought the 18 frame motorized and have never regreted the choice to wait nor the choice to get one big enough to be useful.

Even if you do opt for a smaller one (I have a 6-frame - teeny tiny for most of these folks), please get a motor, you will be so glad you did!

Definitely get a motorized one and at least 9 frames!!! I got a 4 frame manual extractor. The thing will have you sweating and sore with only a few supers!!! The honey tank would be awesome as well!! I have to get a bigger one soon!!
