I just finished 3 cut-outs at the area Department of Transportation, in their mixing shed. This is what I used:
1. Scaffolding to reach 15'.
2. Flatbed trailer to haul scaffolding, vacuum, and deep super for brood.
2. Pick-up to pull trailer and haul everything else.
3. Bee Vacuum from Bushkillfarms. Didn't have time to build one.
4. Skilsaw, drywall saw (really great) bread knife, cat's claw and hammer (for wire cables) extension cords, queen catcher, small strap to tie vacuum hose to trusses. (kept weight off me) rubber bands for frames, paper towels, playtex gloves, hive tool.
5. Ladder to reach scaffolding.
6 Several clean buckets; 1 with water, and 2 totes for brood.
7. Sprayer with vanilla water or peppermint oil and water. (I don't use smoke for a cut-out)
8. Small pieces of wood to keep the brood comb separate in the tote.
9. SBB for brood super, and screened top. (heat index was 100+)
10. Sweatband and clean rags. (self-explanatory)
11. Ratchet straps for the brood super and vacuum.
After I removed the brood comb and honey, I used the flatbed as my table to put the comb in the frames. I started out using a Sawsall, but went back to the Skilsaw.
