    I could fit a couple more in there if I had to.

    My treasured Subaru Baja Bee Truck will probably be declared totaled on Monday. A lady decided it was time for me to get a new one, she pulled in front of me as I drove 35 mph with the right of way.
    How do I keep the bee poop off my shiny new rig? Why can't we buy a tiny pickup anymore n this country?

    It all worked out for the best Ollie. Now you finally have something that looks like a man drives it.

    Sweet ride Ollie. You really prepared to have that sucker get covered with bee droppings?

    If it makes you feel any better, my 'mid sized' 2012 Nissan Frontier with a 6 gets better gas mileage than the 'compact' 02 with a 4 that it replaced.

    Here's my lowly 2004 Nissan Frontier with a $120 ladder rack I use for swarm season. I'm just a poor retired cop who's spent his life protecting life and liberty. I live on a meager pension and could never afford a truck like Ollie's but I make do.

    Ben,

    That would make a nice flatbed.

    Charlie, maybe Radar can help you have these video sound tracks start up automatically in the back ground of all your posts, and while you are on the podium at your bee club.

    Ian, what are the specs of that hoss?

    I find my truck sometimes less good in offroad conditions than lighter 4WD trucks. After rain we have very muddy conditions here. A lighter truck (with no hives though) just digs through the mud. The heavier and longer trucks get stuck much quicker, even when empty.

    The reason why I stick with the heavier truck is, it pulls much better a trailer with hives.

    This truck is a F550 4x4 6litre. I bought it out of the oilfields, extended the chassy by 36" and built a 16' deck which suits my boom loader.
    Being 4x4 I do not get stuck very often but like any flatbed dual wheeled truck the back end is light when empty and I do need to call on the 4x4 at times a regular sized truck wouldn't.

    I run this truck, two tone trucks and a half tone.

    Bernhard, A guy learns pretty quick how wet is too wet but cherry picking yards after rains helps keep the work going and lock in that 4x4, she goes through a lot! I use aggressive Michelin tires

    Ian - How many hives can you put on that truck and use the boom loader ?

    Loaded right up, a 16' deck will fit 160 singles or 80 doubles. I usually load 120 singles out or into the shed, easier to handle. But when chasing flow on my sprawling landscape I will usually pick one or two yards on the way.

    That picture is working on the third pull box(down to one), it's the second yard I am picking up to move 10 miles down onto some sunflower and buckwheat fields to end off the season.
