Re: 6-framer - larger-scale, commercial grade, mobile operator
Frank, I am not aware of the "Russian~English voice to voice app" (just not needed for me).

Those who run the compact verticals have one simple response - just try it for yourself and be honest about it (and learn a little too) - THEN come back and comment.
The 6-framer way has one obvious benefit - standard frame reuse (as much as I like the square models - in theory).
The most important argument - here we are observing a real, volume honey producer, totally mobile - he runs totally from the trailers and does not "BS" around.
He is always on the go to his next honey pasture.
He is the "efficiency" and has very little tolerance for futzing about.
Most all problems of 10/12 frame equipment he does not understand because he does not have those problems.
I like the 6-frame config because the box amounts to 3-full size frames again.
The same as my envisioned 9-frame config (which would amount to the same 3-full size frames per a box) BUT no need for a custom frame.
(I just watched another episode about - "how do you get the bees to come up onto the honey supers" - his response - what is the problem again? I don't have that problem - you stack the supers as needed and call it done and bees just get into them - the beauty of a compact vertical).
