This beginner friendly honey extractor features a side mounted handle providing greater comfort than other hand crank extractors without sacrificing efficiency. Made of a durable build, this machine can last for many seasons and works best for beekeepers with a few hives.
A unique cast steel worm gear drive allows the basket to freewheel without the handle spinning. A brake is applied by gentle backwards pressure on the crank (similar to a cruiser bicycle).
