      While a hand crank extractor is good for starting you will soon regret that you didn’t purchase a motorized one. I recommend Maxant because they are American made and very good. We’ had ours for 8 years and we use it hard with no problems. The advantage with a motorized Maxant is it holds it’s value if you want to sell it.
