I installed a hydraulic hoist on the back of my pickup.  since I am physically challenged these days I needed something that would let me load a lot of things by myself.  The hoist is great I can left a hive of bees using a couple of straps, 55 gal barrels, hay bales, etc with it.  Cost me less than $75.00 on sale at HFT.  I'm now getting an electric winch so I can use it and the hoist to yard and load.  I figure on using it to butcher animals.  I will be able to kill, lift, slaughter, and haul any animal up to the 1000lbs.

It's amazing what 1 person can do with a 4X4 pickup and the right tools.  My pickup is also my tractor.


Brian,

You certainly have an excellent Attitude  grin

Does anyne have any great suggestions/ideas on how to move hives by yourself.
Is there any type of dolly/handtruck out there for this industry?
