    Anyone have plans for a crank type lift for a pickup or flat bed truck.

    I can not lift much any more, but want to keep busy with the bees. I would like to build a lift I can put a cable on and lift a hive and have it so it would swivel back to the truck bed. Any ideas or plans??

    I spent a lot of time thinking about the same thing. In the end I have decided to get a "liftGate". One of those tail gates that have hydrolic/Ele system built in to lower and lift the whole tale gate on my pick-up. I have a buddy with one because he is an appliance repairman.
    My reasoning was if I spend all my money on a system just to lift a bee hive and put it on my pickup them that is what I have. A tool that is designed for that one thing. Bt if I get a lift gate then I can use it for several different types of jobs.
    That was my thinking.

    You can make or buy a picker that mounts in rear corner of a pickup box. Based on a hydraulic jack.

    Here is a homemade "cherry picker" out for bid

    If you are working on soft ground...you would have to back the pickup under it.

    I had one in SF I made out of iron pipe (threaded all the joints) it had 4 legs wider than my pickup with piped threaded and store bought joints that had a bar going across the middle and a chain hoist so I could lift stuff straight up and back the truck under it...threaded pipes are easy to work with.

    For beehives you can''s a picture to give you some ideas. Should be easy to install in a pickup truck. The super that he is loading came off of the hive directly behind the post of the lift...the boom swivels...

    I''d like to build something similar for my half ton flat bed. Not to move hives but to work them. Lift the supers off to get to the brood chamber, etc.

    The big problem I see with the off-the-shelf cherry pickers is that they can''s handcart shown.

    It had a setup that allowed the operator to get under the bottom board, and then tip the hive on its back. With the hive in this position the boxes could be separated, cleaned top and bottom, and inspected casually or more fully as needed. This made rearranging easy too - put down the cleaned bottom board and re -stack the boxes in the order desired. The cart was custom made of aluminum for light weight, and had a canvas catch-all mounted behind/under the handles so that the wax scrapings can be captured and saved.

    This device was pretty handy, mobile, light and took up little space on the truck.

    We lugged the individual boxes to and from the truck, but this device made splitting the hives early season pretty easy.
    Didn'' trailer soon and will be rigging something up like that!! No more loading the back of the truck by hand!!!
