    Default Need new barrel lift

    I need to get a new barrel grabber for the forklift. I've heard to stay away from the one from Mann Lake. Any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Craig

    We use a parrot beak style, the name brand of which escapes me. It attaches directly to the forklift where the forks attach. I will try to report back with the brand name.

    Do you guys think it would warrant going to the 1500# Uline because of the added weight capacity?

    I've never seen a barrel of honey weigh over 700 pounds.
    I have exactly ONE more hive than you.
    That makes my opinion beyond dispute!

    Thanks Harry, I thought about that, but I have the bad habit of overbuilding everything I make. (according to my wife)
