Does anyone use the E-Z Lift Hive Truck from Mannlake? Pros and Cons? I'm looking for something to move hives around in the bee yard from one pallet to another.
I have one never used it yet. When you figure out a use please let me know.

Yes. Interestingly I saw an old one almost exactly like it and obviously homemade and obviously made decades ago at Lusby's...
Easy to get on and off the boxes without lifting or tipping them. Pneumatic tires that make a smooth ride.

You might have to do the opposite of what I did. I made the frame go lower. You may need it higher to move them on and off of pallets.
