Damn! A lot more than I ever thought I'd have
This looks incredibly civilised for the average small time beekeeper - can only find it in the USA and at $330 a tad expensive but you can set it to deliver whatever quantity of honey you need to fill each jar and once it is set .. no more weighing.

Can't see that lasting more than a season TBH. There is significant torsional loading being imparted and it requires two handed operation. Also the handle is too short. Like Emyr, I've yet to see anything that replaces the ubiquitous jug at a reasonable price. It is a real shame the carriage charges from the USA are so damned expensive they do have some good kit at reasonable prices.

I never actually thought of a jug just filling them straight from the bucket through the Honey gate ��-♂

Cheers
I find the least transfer between vessels the better!
Honey losses every time you transfer as it sticks to the inner surfaces for ever !
