    Thanks for sharing this!
    As a hobbyist Im happy with my 2 hives, but it sure is cool to see the efficiency you guys can achieve and the machines and workers that help make it possible.
    I hope you have a great harvest

    Watching your video makes me want to run all deeps. Do you barrel or tanker your honey?

    Give us droolers a idea of cost on that setup and how long it is going to take to pay off the investment.

    Great video - thanks.
    Do you scrape bottom of frames at all? Does one guy feed boxes onto both uncapper lines? Nice looking frames - very few dark comb. What kind of honey being processed?
