    Default 5 5/8 boxes for sale

    850 5 5/8 shallows for sale.

    They have 8 frames to a box.
    Equipment is serviceable but definitely not new.
    They were used this 2017 honey season.
    $6 per box.

    Pick up or shipment (only if shipment is arranged by buyer)

    Will not sell in lots less than 54.

    Thanks,

    Man why you gotta bust my chops 😝 Every time I post this size for sale somebody thinks I didn't get it right. Haha!

    Yes, the height of the box measures 5 and 5/8. It is commonly referred to as a "shallow"

    This is not a custom size:

    Mann Lake produces 5 and 5/8 boxes with a 5 3/8 frames to fit. See page 27 2017 catalogue:

    Dadant produces 5 11/16 with a 5 3/8 frame to fit. In fact it will say Shallow in their trade magazine. See page 17 in 2016 catalogue.

    The size has been around for ages. In fact I believe it's the same measurement as what you run in your operation.

    They are without a doubt 5 and 5/8 boxes. Not 6 and 5/8.

    Isn't that the same size comb honey producers use?
