Re: Trailer and lift recommendation
Yea.. I understand that. I'm the same way myself. But a number of years ago I went out and rented a 753 bobcat and having never used one... I unloaded most of a semi of bees. Another guy was also unloading with a JD frontend loader - I would guess I was unloading 2 pallets for his one - and I had never used a skidder. So I just had to go buy one and in those days there were plenty around in the 7k to 10k range - i've never regretted that purchase and I still use it to this day. If I remember correctly, that JD was pretty tricky to use and required some serious weight on the rearend just to deal with 2 pallets of dd. Sure I would love to a have a swinger but they are just out of range for the 200-300 hive crowd.

Veni, vidi, Velcro. I came, I saw, I stuck around.
