The weight of a hive, or more precisely the weight of wooden hive body, frames, wax, bees and honey it contains is surprisingly high. It remains higher than 40 kg in winter and it may exceed 100 kg in summer. In addition, the hive height may rich almost 2 m. Hence we created solid pad, which should resist such weight and it seems very stable. The load cell installed bellow back part of the hive, can measure the weight from 0 to 150 kg.
