    Smile Bee Hive Lifts

    Does anyone have a source of one man bee hive lifts that will allow you to pick up a whole hive stack or less?
    I have looked at one from Slovenia and Sweden, but the Slovenian Company does not sell in the USA.

    http://www.hivelifter.com/the_hive_lifter_003.htm looks nice but the price for the electric one is HIGH over $3k

    I made one from harbor freight 1 ton shop crane, had to put on 8 inch air tires so it will go over uneven ground goes over the hive pick it up strap it to the base of the lift and wheel it to its new location or load it on to a trailer works pretty good and it was less than 150$

    Apilift has the patent/rights for this type of lift in Germany

    but you could build quite a few for the cost of one original.
    There are many more affordable units available in eastern Europe as you found out, but they direct you to Apilift.

    Here are some pics of my home made bee lift works real good on uneven ground. I pick up a hive then lower it back on to the stand and strap it to the strand to hold it in place. I can wheel it right on to my trailer or to another location in the yard.
