I plan increasing to around 50 colonies this year and more the next. I will be keeping my bees at four or five yards, doing a little flow hopping, and nuc making. Anyway, point is I need to be able to move complete hives without it being a nightmare. I figure Ill start putting colonies two wide on skids. I have an old one ton crew cab Chevy that Ill put a flat bed on. I figure a crane on back corner of bed and something like a 12 foot hand crank expendable crane or something in that neighborhood. I can figure out the details for that myself but what I really would like to know is what is the best attachment or setup to use to hook up to the hives with. Im not familiar with the names of the gadgets used for this. I know when I worked construction, i liked the forks that swung, and rotated freely by hand with a center of gravity in middle of pallet. Is that the attachment most beeks use? How much are they$? Where do you buy them? What else works? Any other suggestions.
