    Re: Bulk fondant suppliers

    I second L&S Sweetners, we buy a smaller bulk amount through their subsidiary Golden Barrel. Reliable, good quality, reasonably priced.
  2. Re: MAXANT CUSTOMER SERVICE/EXCEEDED EXPECTATION

    A few weeks back we picked up our fifth Maxant bottling tank, another 25 Gallon Model 600-3, with the no drip valve. I finally got it installed today, which reminded me I should let folks know that...

    Re: New ford 1ton??

    I have the 2016 F250 with 6.2L gas, the computer indicates it gets 10.8 miles per gallon. Lousy gas mileage, but I don't drive it much, mostly use it for pushing snow and pulling a 20 foot trailer....

    Re: Walter Kelley Multi-Purpose Tank

    Tavery,

    Not sure what you are looking for, but I use the Maxant MUTT for holding frames after going through their chain uncapper or when I just need to uncap a few boxes by hand. I am happy with...
  5. Re: What don't you like about Mann Lake's 18 frame extractor vs Maxant's 20 frame one

    I can't speak for the Mann Lake extractor, but we have bought the vast majority of our extraction hardware direct from Maxant and remain happy with those purchases. We bought a second Maxant...

    Re: Plastic vs Glass vs pricing

    Just my observation but here in the Boston MA suburbs, at least in affluent communities, honey bottled in plastic just doesn't sell as well as glass.

    We used to carry both but after watching a...

    Bob,

    Sorry to hear about what happened. As far as I know, there are only two folks in the area who are still taking orders for packages, here is what I found on their websites -

    Re: Heilyser JB700 OA Blower

    Re: Colony Update here in MA

    I could be mistaken, but here in Tewksbury MA it looks like the buds on my Norway and Silver Maples appear to be swelling, nothing at all on the Sugar Maples though.

    The reason I note this is the...
  10. Re: What are the best radial extractors on the matket

    We have two Maxant extractors, the Model 1400 twenty frame is bulletproof. In fact we just picked up our 2017 order on Thursday, they are great to work with. Now we have something to do besides...

    Re: Colony Update here in MA

    Cam, we started with 50 +/- and are down about 20%, all without question self inflicted. I confess that I spent too much time playing with the JB700 and the three cycle OAV treatments in two of our...

    Re: Colony Update here in MA

    The Golden Barrel fondant comes shipped in two layers of cardboard boxes, inside is a solid 50lb block of fondant they vacuum seal into a plastic bag. It is very well packaged, but quite heavy, so...

    Re: Colony Update here in MA

    I feel like we have run out of time for feeding syrup, so we are leaving a large amount of fondant on top when we close them up this weekend. Most of our hives are at winter weight, but a few just...

    Re: Maxant Bottling tank and no drip valve

    Just a few weeks ago we bought two more of the #600-2, each bundled with the NDV. I asked them this same question while ordering on the phone, as D Coates suggests, if you bundle the NDV with the...

    Re: Heilyser JB700 OA Blower

    I only used the JB700 two weekends in a row until it failed, but I noticed this exact behavior as well, when the red light is on it stops heating to the point that sublimation has completely ceased. ...

    Second time I have ever used it, yesterday afternoon, the same thing happened while removing the plug as I shutdown to move to my next yard. The male pin broke out of the JB700 device...

    Re: Heilyser JB700 OA Blower

    As I indicated in another thread, I also am leaning towards having buyers remorse on the Heilyser JB700. I only used it once, yesterday, to OAV 50 hives and already the handle is wiggly. In addition,...
