    Default swinger 100 vs 200

    If you had to take a swinger would it be the 100 or 200? Anyone have any specs on these two?

    As far as I understand the 100 and 200 are not the 1k and 2k.

    I am not sure of your setup but the 200 is a little heavy for beekeepers and the 100 has a gas engine unless its been upgraded. If it has been upgraded then that would be the way to go. If you could find a 110 or a 1600 I think you would be better off.

    I have been looking for an old Swinger for years and not been able to find an acceptable one. I am going to get a 1k this spring and just bite the bullet and get a "New" toy.

    I had a 100 for 10-12 years and it served me well. I bought it used from a fellow beekeeper and it actually appreciated in value. It had a gas engine (continental) that was sensitive to tune ups so I had it serviced very regularly. It was a nice compact unit that easily fit into tight quarters I deal with in my storage building. The lift capacity suffered a bit but I could lift most things except full totes of syrup. I suppose I could have added more weight to keep it from trying to tip but bought a new lift before that point.

    I think it is Zolfo Springs. But, having it built in FLA and shipping to OR would cost a fortune.

    BEESERIOUS, I am thinking about making a trip to visit family in TN next winter so it might be a possibility that I could drive to FL and pick up 2 trailers.
    That is if I could piggyback one on the other? Then you would only have to drive to North Idaho to pick it up!

    Trevor, I would be interested in the link as well. Thanks!

    You say next winter? meaning 2014? If it was later this winter make it 3 and then 2 could be picked up in ND and brought back here. Then one to OR.
