Re: Moffett / Princeton forklifts
How many times are you moving them? It might make more sense to rent a small bobcat from an equipment rental business. Im fortunate that I am able to borrow the equipment I need to move mine (300 hives), but if I didnt have that option renting a bobcat for moving 100-200 hives twice a year seems to make more sense, put the $10k into growing your business to the point you have to buy the equipment for everyday use. We move ours twice a year with the skidsteer, other than that we are still moving a lot of singles, nucs, and honey on my f350 flatbed, loaded by hand.
