We figure a 115# hive average. That includes the pallet and all. I also ask drivers how much they're emtpy truck and trailer weighs before they get there. Its saves a lot of hassle taking bees back off a truck. My forklifts are the really really old Bobcat 610's I have 3 with 10' masts 1 with a 12' mast and 2 with regular loader arms for loading barrels and doing other odd jobs. They're cheap and I love them. But you have to be somewhat of a mechanic to own one let alone 6. (the reason for owning 6...so I'll have at least 2 forklifts and one loader going at any one time.)
