    Some of the hardest work we have to do is shifting colonies between pallets. Culling, consolidating and so on. Like if you are shipping out for pollination.
    I hate to think how many times, how much damage I did to my self...
    Mann Lake sells these hand truck kind of things that grip a box from the side by either the handhold or cleat. They are just outta sight. Doubles, triples, rough ground, no sweat. You ( or hired man ) can set them down on clips with ease.The balance and tire size are perfect. $350 more or less I love it.

    Here is a question related to moving boxes. On the boxes I built, I only put handholds on the front and back. This means that when I use a dolly like this, I will be leaning the hive sideways. Is that going to raise the chances that I will break some comb?

    If you can push or pull the hive up the ramp the cart will hold on to the boxes,a real handy tool to have around when filling in pallets or moving bees.

    Time saver but more important a "back"saver. We use the heck out of these for consolidating hives for pollination. It would be twice the work and much slower without it.

    I would think so, has two levels for axle, one lower for bottom boards, one higher for pallets.
