I thought this looked familiar. An acquaintance of mine sent me pictures back in February of his new fully automated bho extractor. BHO wasn’t my preferred way forward so I didn’t give it much thought.
I believe he said it cost ~ $225k. Which in my book puts it close to the price of a co2 machine of equal or larger throughput.
Now, I’ve actually bought into a company and its not only my decision regarding equipment selection. I’ll being told we’re going butane, so this is back on the table. Though it’s still expensive.
I worry about accepting sales data for the estimated throughput. I’ve been trying to evaluate equipment, but finding data to trust is tough.
Agreed though, the throughput of the CO2 machines is generally less.
But, I’m not sure I believe that butane is the future. Even if CO2 is not quite as efficient, it seems that the average consumer is going to prefer a “solventless” extraction over a hydrocarbon based extraction. I am worried that regulators will eventually start making things more difficult for hydrocarbon based extraction.
I’m looking forward to hearing if the $225k price is still valid though.
