I have for sale the following set up and will only sell as such.

One honey pump.

One 500 pound tank.

One bottling machine which fills pound jars. May have the adaptor for half pounds but need to check.

The pump cost me 6 barrels of honey. I had the stand built for it to allow draining of the body.

The tank is stainless steel and has a coned bottom to ensure drainage.

The bottling machine is (I think) and I need to check this, from Swienty. It can bottle 100 jars an hour.

This set up is semi pro and can cope with 100 colonies and very likely a good few more. It is a good system for "the bucket brigade" but not suitable for barrels.

If interested please pm. Price will be circa £2-3k.

Hi Poly,

I would also like some pics, also would like to know if possible the age, make & model of the bottler and pump. And would definatley need to know if the bottler was able to accomodate varying sized jars as the modern Swienty bottler will.


Thank you & Happy New Year

I need to get over to my store for most of this info.

The bottling machine will do half and pound jars only.
