I started keeping bees this year and I have had so much amazing help and support from Gwenyngruffydd. They have been just amazing. To end the season off I bought myself one of these as I thought it will be something I can grow in to as a beekeeper and I also have an upgrade route with being able to add a motor to it. It is a very high quality fantastic bit of kit and I couldn't recommend it enough.
I chose this honey extractor for three main reasons: Firstly, I did not want to purchase a cheap knock off and support a non-democratic regime by doing so. Secondly, I needed an extractor large enough to suffice me in years to come. I currently only have three hives (only one will be able to be harvested this year). This one will be enough even if I triple or quadruple this number in future. According to the info that I received from the very helpful staff at Gwenyn Gruffydd, it can also be used with Dadant frames and not only National supers. I still have a few years to work, but being originally from mainland Europe I do have plans to return there when the time comes to retire.
My new honey extractor arrived two days ago. I am absolutely ecstatic about it. It was very well packaged and was delivered on a pallet straight to my front door. The extractor itself looks very well built, the mechanics work quietly and smoothly. I have not tried it with frames,yet. Only done a dry run. Whilst it obviously can hold a large capacity of frames, the empty extractor can still be picked up and lifted by one person, if needed. The instructions come in French, which is not a problem for me, but may be for others. All together, 5 stars and I cannot wait for my golden harvest.
