Has anyone actually weighed their meduim (Ill.) supers when they were full or just before extraction? I think I am going to weigh all of my this yr. before we actually extract-- I have over 20 med. supers that are full and about 90% capped. I will be extracting soon... Thanks for your help Debbie

A mdeium is typically  60 lbs.

10 frame Medium = 60 lbs.
10 frame Deep = 90 lbs.
10 frame Shallow = 50 lbs.
8 frame medium = 48 lbs.
