    Default E-Z Lift Hive Truck

    mh-105_125x70.jpg

    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.

    Yes. Interestingly I saw an old one almost exactly like it and obviously homemade and obviously made decades ago at Lusby's...

    >Pros

    Easy to get on and off the boxes without lifting or tipping them. Pneumatic tires that make a smooth ride.

    > and Cons?

    It's set up for deeps, so I raised the axel (which lowers the frame) to line up on mediums. It works well on two deeps, but needs a bigger rack to haul more boxes when they are empty. Here's what mine looks like after adjusting it:

    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.
