i have one $2,000 pollination contract in the spring. i have around 24 pallets. i rent a bobcat once to move them in and once to move them out. it costs about $240 twice. i make $1500 that i couldn't make at all without the machine. i plan to own a machine in a few years. i'm guessing it will be a bobcat, because of the other things we do around here, although i use another guys swinger in the almonds (moving his bees) and love it.if i was going to go big for pollination it'd be a swinger. i've never tried a hummerbee.
