    My Dodge 3500/ Cummins does most of the heavy lifting, but I don't drive it much. I let the help do that...and the lifting.



    My other truck is a Jeep that I use for the queen rearing and nuc making side of the apiary.

    I sure would like to see some pictures or details for the boom on that truck.

    I can't brag about this truck because it isn't mine.
    But I am rather proud of the condition of my equipment.

    I have exactly ONE hive more than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond question.

    Are those live hives? I don't see any bees.

    Mike is right, there are a lot of these in use still and they can be found laying around as well.
    They were made just a few miles from here, but no more.

    I will take a couple of pictures of a friend's and post but it won't be for a week or so.

    Good looking load ,Harry. I like to see good uniform equipment (even if I don't yet meet that standard myself!).

    I have a few pictures of the boom, somewhere.Will look for them. I just got back from moving 120 hives from the mountains to the Valley with it. Still works fine. I think Randy Oliver has one too,though don't know if he still uses it.

    More truck pics:

    Can't match Harry's but we're working on it.

    Hey Harry notice we put an extra single under the 3 doubles, our motto is: "Load em up then start negotiating". I'll admit we have had heavier bees though.

    Just when I thought I could take a short break, these pictures are revving me back up!
    Nice looking outfits, guys!
    Mike, I noticed your towable forklift. I have one also.
    Folks that have never used one have no idea how much time is shaved off the work day compared to other styles of forklifts.
    Maybe we can start a thread on forklift pictures.
    I have exactly ONE hive more than you.

    Trucks_nov2011.gifSlow Modem,
    I love your truck.

    Makes mine look young. (I threw a rod last night. Beats letting the engine seize up from not driving it.)

    It would be so awesome if Michael Bush posted a picture of his brown minivan.

    Here are a few of the Fruetel Bee Boom pics. Though nowadays I am more interested in looking at forklift pics!

    Harry is right, the towable lifts are ready to roll in a couple of minutes.Biggest problem with these converted truck/forklifts is the turning radius.Its a real bear to remove pallets that were put in a tight (bad)place by a swinger,with one of these.Don't ask how i know...

    !947 IH KB-3 0ne ton, should be all I need as hobby guy. And yes it runs and drives. All my hives are within 2 miles. This would only work for a hobby.
