does anyone know a place that sells a lift like the APIHELFER as they won't sell to the states?

This one is a little different design than the ApiLifter ....

... but it does seem to be available to USA customers. The manufacturer was advertising on Beesource earlier this year, but I haven't seen their ad lately.

Note that the power assist option can be set up for USA standard electrical recharging ....
-Can be combined with the moving assist system (SBKR-104) for making way over balks and obstacles and easily accessing rough and sloppy grounds. It charges at home or at your car. (US customers should ask for 110V power supply).

how do you contact them? Price? shipping? will they ship to US?
@larrymn,
I just got one. Contacted them via e-mail. Prompt response. Yes, they ship to US via cargo, ocean freight. Can't answer your questions regarding costs and prices in open forum.
PM me and I will tell you about it.

This BeeSource is really frustrating to post on sometimes.

The Aipilift is clearly built using unistrut also know as cantruss. Very common and sold in every electrical wholesaler in north America. Thomas and Betts make rollers that fit inside the unistrut. The tires are driven by a friction drive that could be had on a hobby website. One of the creative types on here could build one and give us all the plans. I started gathering parts and then lost interest as I do not have a DC welder.
See the bottom pictures:

So for the 3rd time the 'moderator' has removed my post because it contained an approximate price. Good lord. The one Barry removed last night had approximate prices on unitstrut which could vary +/- 50% depending on your discount and obviously would vary again +/-50% between Canadian and USA distributors. But here is the Rodgers hive lift once more.

It is less than 1 trillion dollars.

Here is the forum header:
Forum: Where To Buy . . .
If you really must, post the ever popular and tiring questions, "Where can I buy . . ." or "Who sells the best . ." Do not post prices.

I posted it was less than a trillion dollars. How close can I get to the price range before it get moderated? It's less than a billion too.

I have been in contact with this company that makes hive lifters. http://www.kaptarlift.hu/ The biggest issue is the shipping cost. If I can get a large enough order together, the shipping can be reduced considerably.
They make a manual model as well as several electric models. The manual lifter is about half the cost of an electric one.
PM me for details if interested.

I have emailed this company but my emails get bounced. Anyone else have issues? Just want a price on the full electric one, maybe someone could pm me? Course freight would be different for me but price of the unit would be a starting point.
