    Default Show me your hive mover - loader not a swinger nor mule

    The header says it
    I am tired of arming it, it was so hot today I quit.

    I have a small lawn trailer the type you pull with quad or lawn mower for around here
    But it still is lift on lift off lift again,then load the trailer move to grove unload.
    So,I thinking it time for something like a modified hand truck or ???
    So with all the go go gadget folks what have to made or bought that didn't cost enough to break you
    I saw one M Bush had looked like a modified wheel barrel
    I also think for here in FL.with the sand it may need some bike tires
    So show me
    Pictures worth a thousand....

    Thanks

    I can't get the search to show me
    I'm sure this was asked before

    The Mann lake hand truck is great for moving hives from one pallet to another on flat ground. But I would hate to try to roll a hive up a ramp with it. Or any hand truck for that matter.

    Seems like you need to go into production with that critter. Really neat, what runs the pulley system that lifts the forks.

    An ATV electric winch. The box on the back has around 500# of concrete and the tires are filled with water for better traction. It will easily lift two double deeps with two supers each full of honey without any problems. It has really been a big help. I can easily move 20hives supers and all loaded on the trailer all by myself without any problems. My next project is to get my pallets and hives to where I can stack them so I can load 40hives on the trailer. I will have to unsuper them and load the supers separate but, will be able to move more hives on the trailer.

    I move bees on double pallets at the moment using a fork lift arrangement that I have built that fits on a walk behind engine powered wheelbarrow that has a removable skip leaving a flat bed to work with, its great but very noisy at night and slow but safer than by hand and easier on the back which is my prime objective. Nothing dedicated made in the UK

    I am using it today so I will try and take some pics, it's not painted yet as I need to do one or two modifications to it for ease of use and counterbalance when carrying honey supers

    As promised a few pics of todays bee move, only fifteen hives, first time on the heather over here in uk. Supers have either been removed previously or in second trailer, as you see a smaller scale that the US

    Very cool Beebreeder. I use a two way pallet with my little forklift too. It sure makes it nice not to have to worry about finding someone to help when its time move the bees.
