Tired of turning the handle? Getting a little cranky? Upgrade your small extractor to a motorized unit using this kit. Includes a 120V motor controller, a self contained motor/speed reducer, and mounting hardware. This kit is designed to fit the Lyson LEX2019N 4-frame extractor. It can also be adapted to fit other extractors, but may require some creativity and tinkering skills to install (not included). Use this motor kit for extractors that do not have a shaft extending from the bottom of the extractor. This motor kit goes on top of the extractor and takes the place of the hand crank gearbox. Instructions are included for the Lyson models. To install, remove the hand crank gearbox and replace it with the electric motor. Note: on the Lyson LEX2019N, beekeeper will need to drill two holes in the top bar to install the motor controller. 

Tools required to install:
- 17mm and 13mm wrenches or sockets
- 5 and 6mm Allen wrenches
- 5/16" or 8mm drill bit and electric drill (4-frame extractors only). You will be drilling two holes in the steel top bar. 

-120V AC input to controller
-120 Watt DC motor
-Reducer type: toothed belt reduction with sealed ball bearings and durable plastic housing
-Speed range: 0 to 250 RPM (adjustable with knob) 

Details of motor/reducer for adapting to other extractor models:
ID of reducer shaft which your extractor shaft will go into: 0.600" with notch for roll pin or cotter pin
Hole size needed in top bar of extractor: about 1". Reducer shaft OD is 7/8". This means you will need to drill or cut hole approx 1" in diameter in the top bar if there is not already a hole that large. There are also two small bolt holes that need to be drilled for the gearbox to bolt into. To mount the controller, user may also need to drill holes to bolt the controller into place.

    Lyson Motor Upgrade

    Posted by Lynn Z on 23rd Jul 2019

    While hand cranking our extractor was much easier than the plastic unit we used as beginners, the motor upgrade for our 4 frame Lyson made the extraction a breeze. The Frames were almost completely clean and I know we extracted more honey than ever. It makes the space to slide in the frames a little tight, but well worth the two skinned knuckles. Great purchase.
