Re: Maxant 3100-H (hand crank model)... Should I order?
The great thing about the Maxant 3100 H is that it will get you "in the door" with a quality piece of equipment which you'll be able to grow into both in bees (more hives in the future), and equipment (upgrade to the motor at such time as you feel necessary). There is also the value of having a piece of equipment that's actually worth something. The Maxant's hold their values better than gold and you'll always be able to get spare parts if ever necessary. Besides, they're a great bunch of people who appreciate our community (and all made in the good ol' USA).
Consider it a Memorial Day purchase.
