    Default 2 4-frame nuc box on 10 frame for honey

    I am pondering ways to produce honey worth deep frames, and without breaking my back.
    Would it be possible to use 2 4-frame boxes instead of a full 10 framer? I would think the chimney effect may help here.
    Have 4 hives, as of 5/30/2017

    The frames in my boxes are removable. If I couldn't lift a deep, I may be able to bring an empty deep and handle it one frame at a time by placing full frames in the empty deep.

    Yep, what he said. just take the frames out and put them into a nuc box to carry. heck use a cardboard nuc to be even lighter
