About this item
This is a very simple bit of kit. It will not be used every day, but when you need it, you need it!
It comes with no instructions, and had to be dismantled after assembly as I had put the bolts in place the wrong way round and they fouled the carrier when first used.
I concur with other reviewers in that the single lug on each side which bear the load are somewhat narrow. It is also relevant to note that all the weight being lifted is taken on the side bar of your hive component, be it super or brood box(es), so don't be tempted to use the carrier with that old super you really should have replaced...........
I'm glad I took advantage of a special price, as I feel the full price to be a little on the high side for something as basic as this item
As usual, Bee Equipment's customer Service and delivery were spot on.
Ok, but would be improved if the lugs that fit under the top side rails were a little wider (deeper) so they don’t rest on the edge of the rail when lifting the weight of a full brood &possibly supers
Arrived promptly and was as described, and at a good price.However it came without the two nuts and bolts necessary for assembly.
Simple concept. Well made and practical. What's not to like?
This carrier is well made and makes moving hives much easier, for two people.
It would have been a 5 star product if it was a little wider.
This would allow it to pass over the telescopic roof and be used without the necessity to remove the hive roof.
