1 pointThis is a home made queen cell carrier. It is a hot/cold chilly bin 6L that has a temperature controller which is set to ~34C. The heating plate goes above and below 34C but air temperature at cells is good and they always come out fine. It holds up to 28 queen cells. The unit plugs into a car cigarette lighter (12VDC). This item has been made from new parts. It has been tested, but it has not been used. I can also include a 230V adaptor if would like to run this overnight indoors, but let me know as I'll need to set up a separate auction I think; additional $50. external dimensions are 27cm high x 33cm long x 18cm wide approx. Separately to queen cell use, they can be used on the cold setting for your lunch/drink. It is aimed at hobby beekeepers and price reflects a simple unit that is not intended for heavy duty bashing around. You can read up about this and/or make you own one up by reading older threads on this forum. Shipping nationally and rural is included in the price for the two main islands. It is my first time setting up one of these adverts; my intention is advertise them at $150 each available to buy individually, we have stock of 10 and to make more on demand. There are 51 of these in service around the country, plus my original one at home. Previously assembled by our in-house alien, they are now being put together by his younger sister. The price includes GST, my GST number is 60 022 135, beekeeper number D7196
1 pointManual Hive Trolley. Save your back..and turn a hard day’s work into a day you enjoy… This is a very well proven trolley design that's been used by many beekeepers. It’s designed to remove the back work in beekeeping where the trolley lifts/lowers and carts any hive up to 100kg. Its proven to be a key tool for using on apiary sites when either loading or unloading a ute/trailer of hives, or for when doing splits on supers where you need to split boxes and hold them while you check or work on the hives. Price shown is including GST, invoice can be supplied. Currently sold out, new stock available 20 February. Specifications: • Two strong steel grips, these are clamped against the beehive with a single grip for lifting. • The lifting system is geared for ease of use, and locks automatically when you take your hand off. this removes any risk of the hive dropping suddenly to the ground. • Can be used for polystyrene, plastic and wooden hives. • The clamps can accommodate almost any size of beehive from 38cm up to 70cm wide. • The lift comes with two forks, these lift up and down the same way as the clamps, these are removable. • Wheel size 400-8 • Fully galvanized construction • Rubber grip handles. • Maximum lifting height: 1100cm • Maximum payload: 100kg • Size: Height 165cm Width 67cm Depth 45cm • Tare weight: 30kg Coming soon...New model with fully proportional electric control for lifting and lowering of the mast. ask for further information.. What else can you use the trolley for?? It can be used for moving boxes of fire wood, concrete or stone slabs, headstones, anything that’s under 100kg and can be moved by either clamping it or lifting it with forks.
