3 main types of honey extractors
Tangential honey extractors - for hobbyists
Tangential honey extractors are the most universal, because they are suitable also for the extraction of frames of the largest dimensions. That's why they are best for hobbyists beekeepers. During extraction, the frame is positioned tangentially in relation to the barrel to allow honey to drain more easily. Also available are extractor baskets without the middle axle, which makes it possible to turn the frame around without taking it out from the basket.
Radial honey extractors - for low-height beehive frames
Radial extractors are a perfect solution for beekeepers with low-height beehive frames. The frames are placed vertically around the axis in the basket, similar to the spokes on a bicycle.The centrifugal force and the natural tendency of the cells during rotation ensure that both sides of the frame are emptied simultaneously. In other words, it is no longer necessary to turn the frames in the honey extractor.
Self-turning honey extractors - for larger beekeeping
Self-turning honey extractors are intended primarily for beekeepers who deal with the extraction of viscous honey. Their main advantage is the self-turning of frames during the extraction process, which allows the entire process to be carried out completely automatically. During extraction, the honeycomb is within the cassettes, which protect it from getting damaged.
3 drive types for the honey extractor
How to choose the drive for the honey extractor?
There are three different drives available for the honey extractors:
- Manual drive intended for smaller honey extractors
- Motor drive intended for medium sized honey extractors
- Fully automatic drive intended for larger radial honey extractors and for self-turning extractors
The manual drive gear is recommended for smaller-sized honey extractors and is the most cost effective option. By turning the handle to the right the basket gets rotated and by turning it to the left the basket comes to a stop.

Fully automatic drive
We recommend the fully automatic drive for self-turning and larger radial honey extractors. It makes possible for the entire extraction process to take place automatically and independently. Automation features eight pre-set programmes that can be changed at will. The drive is extremely quiet. The power plug is a "Schuko plug".
