    Once I pull the honey off of my 8000 colonies this coming fall and sell the honey, I'll probably go buy two of them. I'm tapped out now that I bought a Brand new Semi and aluminum 53' trailer. hehe hehe!

    I was only joking everyone I wish I were loaded with money like that. I sure wouldn't be up here where we get -30 below weather and 30 feet of snow.

    Joking aside, I bought my swinger in '83 (I think), and it seemed like a lot of money. But I still have it and after maintaining reasonably well it would sell for 50% more than I paid for it back then. When it comes to tools get the high quality, you'll be happier in the long run. Maybe healthier too which is priceless.

    It ain't the cows they like, it's the clover that the cows like which the bees like too. But what w/ modern dairy farming practices clover is getting scarce since the farmers don't let their cows out onto the fields to graze.

    Oh Doug, you just don't quite exaggerating, do you. There isn't even 30 ft of snow on Tug Hill. Not yet anyway.

    I havent seen a used AO swinger for sale pretty much ever. I've been looking for a month, and the AO website last I looked only had OTHER brands of swingers used. In other words, People get rid of crap swingers and buy hummerbees. I was told by one of our prominent commercial beeks "Get a hummerbee if it means going into debt." must bee good huh?
