[attachment=0:2s710qds]1-3 singles 005.JPG[/attachment:2s710qds]I weighed four hives yesterday.Two were over 65# for single deeps.Two were under45#.Today I added some frames of honey from dead-outs to get the weight up.It got up to 53* so they were flying.I used a hanging scale on the ratchet strap hook to check them.

was that total weight or net weight less the equipment? the can be some substantial variation in equipment weight.

i think at one time I figured the empty weight of a story and a half at about 32#.

that truck is a keeper.

That is with the equipment.They should probably be in nucs ,but it's too late to move them around.The outside frames were empty so thats what I swapped out.
