>Does anyone use the E-Z Lift Hive Truck from Mannlake?

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.
