2 Frame Plastic Honey Extractor
Beekeeping can be an expensive hobby, but our bees pay us back with their delicious honey! With our economical 2-Frame Plastic Honey Extractor, you’ll save your hard-earned money without sacrificing the end goal, honey extraction!
This extractor makes it easy to not only extract but to bottle and store your bees’ honey as well with the included honey gate. Made of high-quality and sturdy plastic, except for a steel center shaft, this hand-cranked extractor comes ready to help you extract with a plastic tank, cover, and plastic gate.
It will hold two honey frames, either deeps or mediums, of any standard size (5-3/8″ through 9-1/8″ tall by 19″ long).
Save your bees the work of re-building comb and save yourself time and money in your honey harvest this season!
- Leave the gate open a slight crack when extracting to prevent honey from building up to the basket.
- This extractor is tangential, meaning it can only extract one side of a frame at a time, the frame must be flipped manually to extract the second side.
- Sometimes the basket in this extractor needs to be lowered about 1/8″ to fit certain frames. To do this, simply press downward on the center of the basket at both the top and bottom, so that it slides down the shaft. When it is lowered a little bit, all Langstroth-sized frames will fit properly.
- If you decide to later upgrade your plastic extractor to a larger stainless steel model, this one won’t become obsolete! It’s a sturdy tank with a honey gate built into the bottom, and the extractor components can be removed to turn the unit into a honey settling tank or bottling tank instead (make sure to cover the bolt holes and handle holes near the top though, to keep curious insects from finding their way inside).
