    Re: Bobcat/Loaders

    Got a used 751 a couple years ago. Put a mast on it last year. It is a reliable machine and I can pick up a tote of syrup just fine. Most of the guys I know run either s130 or s175. Either of those...

    Re: 4 Way pallet ?

    We always drill 1in holes in both back sides of the plywood deck where each hive sets. You can even drill a hole in the corner opposite from the entrance so that no matter what angle your pallet sits...

    Re: 5th Wheel and Mast

    What if you roll it backwards? Highly unlikely but I would rather have more than one exit. Especially if you flip it in water. Plenty of that in Florida lol. I don't believe the integrity of the cage...

    Re: Flat deck truck ?

    Im my opinion a 2wd diesel smaller truck, like a 350-550 range, is a waste of time. Heavy in the nose and sandy/muddy situations don't mix. 4x4 F550 with a 15'-16' ft bed would be my ideal truck....

    Re: requirements for moving bees into florida

    Queens mated in Florida tend to give you a more aggressive hive. I buy some mated queens from California every year and they are generally more passive than the Florida stock. I think we are drowning...
