got tired of lifting hives to move them around to the out yards and did something about it!!
the crane swivels 360 so i can grab and load.
now i can haul em around with ease!!! cheesy

A trailer with a cargo crane, it's a great idea.

What a great idea.  What do you use to hook the hives to the crane?

Nice rig you have there can't beat the price.  Always been my downfall a strong mind and a weak back.  I'm gonna probably build pallets for mine eventually so i can just use the forks on the tractor.   grin

Would like to see more pictures maybe from different angles so I can get a better idea (i.e. copy) how you have it mounted, etc.   grin
