    Re: bobcat loader

    We have a 39 hp Mustang 39 E. It will not pick up a tote of syrup, it loads 2 pallets of doubles just fine. It will pick up 16 loaded honey supers, but not 20 on a single pallet.

    We made a separate hot room for ours. Pallets go in one door to warm, then through the other door to the start of the extracting line. Setteling tank is in there also.
