I have a few questions about the two extractors above. If anyone could provide hands on answers that would be great.

 I see quite a few posts from people talking about buying this extractor and then converting it to electric. If you have this extractor are you pleased to use it as a hand extractor? Do you wish it had a horizontal crank instead of a vertical crank? How durable is the brass or bronze bushing in the larger sheave (hand wheel sheave)?

If you have this extractor are you pleased with the durability of the nylon gears?

I want to purchase an extractor and I have most all my other questions answered. I would just like some firsthand opinions on the above items.

Have a friend that has the powered  max 20 frame. If you have a bunch of hive it is the way to go. His first years had one from brushy hand crank one and replaced it for the max
