When it comes to extractors, the most frequently asked question is, "What size extractor should I get?" There are three things to consider when trying to answer that question.
More important than how many hives you have currently is how many hives you will have? You don't want to outgrow the extractor too soon.
What is your budget?
How do you value your time? To help you with this we have put together an Extractor Chart which shows the amount of time needed to extract with each extractor. The time is just for running the extractor and not the uncapping, loading, unloading, and the other things that need to happen to extractor your honey.
We hope this helps answer your question which extractor is best suited for you.
