The 8 Frame Super is a great way for beekeepers to maintain a full depth box but minimise the weight. Instead of switching to a 3/4 depth box beekeepers may prefer the full depth frame. The 8 Frame Super allows reduction in weight by reducing how many frames the box can hold. The box is reduced width wise to only suit 8 full depth frames, this enables a reduction in weight but still utilises the full depth frames.

The 8 Frame Super (super, deep, storey, brood-box). Assembled. Untreated.

The 8 Frame Super is generally used as a brood box, this means that the queen has free roaming ability within this box to lay. The full depth box accomodates a larger frame compared to a 3/4 depth box creating more space for the queen to lay and maximise the hives population. Some Beekeepers prefer a complete full depth system, it allows greater space for honey but you'll find chugging around hundreds of full depth boxes full of honey becomes quite a mission. This is why beekeepers generally use full depth boxes for raising brood and then using 3/4 depth boxes for honey as it will weigh less when the honey flow ends.
