modified trailer for moving hives.
« on: March 19, 2010, 09:52:51 PM »
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!!! :lol:

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

well thanks! the boom extends out and can really reach out and lift high!
it only cost around a hundred or so for the crane itself.

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.   :-D

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.   :-D
