If your going to grow I would go with a real extractor.  The plastic doesn't have a good reputation.

Have a look at Hornsby Beekeeping supplies - they have a wide range of extractors.  I have used a plastic extractor for many years and have had no problems. Makes it a lot easier if it can be motorised.

Have you checked with your local club. We have 2 extractors that we loan out for $10 a day. We also have a guy who will do the extraction and charges per super. That is how I did my first extraction and after that I decided to put the money into a good 18 frame motorized extractor. With 12 honey producing hives, I am glad I did.

The below link is for quality beekeeping supplies in Brisbane.

There is another supplier in Brisbane but a lot more expensive.

I have a friend that has an old 2 frame pender bros extractor she wants to get rid of. It's in Victoria but I would be happy to hang on to it for you if you plan to come to the mainland in the future.
PM me if you want more info.

I got one o fthe two frame plastic extractors from Quality beekeeping supplies and think it works pretty well, I think it goes pretty well, but now that I am up to about 12 hives I am considering upgrading to a bigger one,
