    Default How much does it weigh?

    Anyone have an idea what 3 pallets, of 4 double deep hives, with bees and honey would weigh? I'm thinking about a new forklift.

    Thank you,

    Craig

    "A standard wooden pallet (48″ x 40″ x 6″) with a static load bearing capacity of 3 tons and a 1 ton dynamic, will weigh approximately 33 lbs. to 48 lbs." let's call it 50lbs to be conservative and make the math easy.
    Around us, a double deep at winter weight is approximately 100 lbs of honey and 50lbs of woodenware.

    So 3 layers*4 hives*150lbs/hive+3pallets*50lbs/pallet=1950lbs

    We usually average about 450 per pallet
