    I am currently working on building a 90 frame radial. We use 9 frames in deeps only, and stack them 5 high on the truck. One load will be 2 stacks.

    Barry may quickly point out that this project is moving about as fast as my foundation mill, and that comp;etion is not expected in the near future.

    As a hobbyist, I also separate the frames according to color, and honey type. The 9 frame seems good for these smaller batches. If I had more than about 20 hives, I could seriously see the need for a much larger electric machine.

    Elderly dadant 32 frame with automatic speed advance box. I bought it for $1600 when I had six hives. Did my crop in two loads. It made more sense than the ten frame Radial That would have cost about the same new.
