Ok. I am at a dilemma. I have 4 way Pallets of hives. I have 30 Pallets. I am just getting into pollination on my own and need a first time forklift. Thought I had a line on a deal of a Swinger but, that did not pan out. I have a chance to buy at auction a 1995 Moffett. 3500 I think would be the max.
I have a Kubota and could get a Mast for the 3 point hitch and use that my first year on my own. What I want to do is get through the first year on my own. I am going to pick up an Isuzu to use as the truck and then trailer the lift.
After I do this for a year or two I can look at investing in hummerbee or swinger. Just such a huge investment in something that could be a huge sink hole.
So I have done this with my Mentor last year and learned a lot He has a home-depot type setup and that is to much to spring for.
Anyone have any good advice.?
