    Not if you have your trailer set up properly and it sounds like you do.
    Unfortunatly, I dont have a tilt trailer. I have a car hauler with ramps, chain binders,etc..... nothing but a time consuming, overweight pain in the butt.
    Our towables weigh just over half of what many forklift / trailers do.
    I have exactly ONE hive more than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond question.

    Thank you for the nice words.
    A friend of mine who has a few towables and I plan to put together a presentation on " How to Construct Your Own Hot-Rod Forklift."
    Something for the state conference.
    Part of that will be videos. I'll post something here.

    forklift rodeo

    I bet there would be some pretty interesting events! Imagine a race around a track with say 5 pallets of bees - on second thought 3 pallets would be enough... drop a pallet and you are out... live bees of course.

    Last time is was more like a relay race with points taken off for mistakes and messed up boxes. The honey queens got a chance to go at it. It was a lot of fun to watch. I think someone has a video somewhere.

    Hey Keith, how wide are the tires? Do you ever have trouble cutting in? I like the idea of having the narrow steering column. I'm assuming it helps you see the forks.

    Did I mention on the swinger 1K you can shift low to high range while driving, no need to be stoped like the other machines.

    Hey Keith how about a short rundown on your impressions after owning it for awhile. For one how does the cummins compare to a Kubota and anything else you can think of.

    Jim, the 1K swinger cummins motor is NON turbo @ 48 hp, more than the Kubota turbo, with a turbo you have to spool up the turbo to get any power out of it which makes it a LOUD HIGH running rpm machine . The swinger 1K model hyd pump is desinged to operate at full capacity when the motor speed is at 50% throdel. It is the difference between a two stroke & a four stroke motocross bike, but in this case the four stroke (swinger) has more horse power & is quite.

    Smoooooth, more leg room, BETTER visablity, much easyer to service, lifts more alot more and the machine cost less than a hummer.

    Better built, just wait to you see them up close, side by side. At the Calif state meeting the two machines were there, the responce from the keepers were unanimous.

    Kinda overkill, isn't it Barry? You could carry 6 to 10 w/ that contraption.

    Here is Manuel moving one of my 12 frame Brother Adam 11 1/4" frame supers that had been used as a honey super to draw out the frames. He throws heavy honey supers around like they are empty. I should be investigated by the Labor Board for making him do this kind of work.

    That thing is one of those interesting looking creations that you're just sure will work. I found it to be more trouble than it's worth.
