Lyson Optima 4 Frame Extractor with Legs


Lyson Optima  4 frame extractor with legs is a beginner friendly honey extractor that features a side mounted handle providing greater comfort than other hand crank extractors without sacrificing efficiency. Made of a durable build, this Lyson Optima 4 frame extractor 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).  Lyson W2019N.
