    Default Electric hive loader/lift

    This is a slick little electric hive loader! I wonder what one of these would cost...

    Neat outfit for a sideliner with couple hundred hives, like to have one myself but the girls would have to pay for it, and with the amount of welfare checks I have written for them this year it's out of the question, thanks for posting it.

    Hi David
    I made the whole thing based on the hive size, double and single pallets (my trailer will not take 4 hives across) height to load on trailer, possibly two stacks high, and to fit uk national sized hives. I can measure and give you some idea if you want but I am no good with cad or sketchup so it may be hand drawn and scanned as an image file if thats any use, PM me if you like

    I guess the lawn tractors in the US are different fom UK as he ones over here would bend the front axle and burst the 2 ply tyres with the extra load, my machine is based off of a Muck Truck, may be available in the US 4 wheel drive and 250 kg weight limit
