Bee Smart Designs QUAD Play (Clearance, Final Sale)
IMPORTANT NOTE: The bottom board in this kit is not compatible with 7/8"+ thick Langstroth supers, which are the variety which we sell in store. Instead, it is designed for 3/4" thick supers. Most Canadian manufacturers are 7/8", which means that this product is not compatible with their boxes. However, if you run 3/4" (which is more typical from US suppliers), then this equipment is fully compatible. Some examples of what this equipment is compatible or not with:
- Lewis & Sons: INCOMPATIBLE
- Dancing Bee: INCOMPATIBLE
- Mann Lake: COMPATIBLE
- Dadant & Sons: COMPATIBLE
Due to this incompatibility with some of our equipment, this item is ON SALE and FINAL SALE. This is an excellent chance for somebody with compatible hardware.
