    You will have to stick with that 'ol Swinger....

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

    I hope you wear a hard hat when operating that thing. And that your wife has a good life insurance policy on you.

    Actually in this case the pumpkin has been flipped so it has four gears forward, one in reverse.
    We just use it around the barn to load and unload supplies; never over 5 mph.
    It works very well for its intended use.
    But it sounds about the same as it looks. Lots of rattles and bangs.
    By the way, its a '42 chevy.

    Here's a couple pics of my homeaide forklift. It works quite well for what it is. I started using 4way pallets this year, I can double stack 4ways on my trailer and haul 12 pallets and the forklift on the trailer without any problems. It works great for my little apiary, being able to move my hives around by myself without any help is nice. I've only got about $500 in it. I would like to get a better loader one day but, for now it's all I need. http://s203.photobucket.com/user/rgr...?sort=3&page=1
