    Default Loading honey onto your truck. Anybody use a moto-dolly?

    I worked for a beek in Manitoba 20 years ago. We used a motorized 2 wheel dolly to load 5 high stacks of supers up the ramp and onto the truck. I think that the cart I used was homemade, but I have heard that somebody produces them now. It was the slickest way to load honey. A 14 year old could run up the ramp with +300lbs of honey no problem, and you dont need to bring along a swinger/skidsteer.

    I have been searcing the net for pics or info but no luck. Now its up to you guys to help me find one. Anyone used or seen one?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Luke

    The ones I remember we're called Ezy-Loader and they were sold by (possibly manufactured by?) AH Meyers in Winfred, SD. They were pretty popular for quite a few years but I haven't seen them any around in quite some time.

    BeeMaid in Winnipeg had one in their Bee Supplies store a summer or two ago. That one was a three wheeler set up and ran for $2000 (I think).

    I used to run Meyers ezy-loaders quite a bit years ago. We used to haul one to the yard when pulling honey and pull out ramps to run stacks up onto the flatbed. They did the job well, just be careful when ramps get slick because things can get interesting real fast.

    Thanks Ian, thats on the right track for sure. As I remember the model we used didn't have the third wheel.
