I can see a lot of uses for these boxes. For me, they would allow me to continue to uncap while my extractor was spinning. I have always been disappointed that Mann Lake's plastic uncapping tank would not accommodate frames. A couple of these boxes and you could uncap up to 20 frames while your extractor was spinning. They are a bit pricey, but cheaper than the uncapping tanks that are actually designed to hold frames.

Does anyone have any experience with the Hive Butler boxes?

Looks like an innovative product with lots of potential. Agree that they are a bit on the pricey side but the market will make that determination.

bloody great idea but far too expensive for an extruded plastic box. I do love the functionality though. If these were a 3rd the price they would get my business. I use the large plastic tubs from the department store...can load up 25-30 medium honey frames and load them onto the back of my truck. I have 4 of them i use at a time in the apiary to bring in the honey.
Time consuming but easy enough.
