Handtruck for Honey Supers

Post by ski » Fri Jun 19, 2015 8:03 pm

At one of my outyards I am only able to drive to within 50-75 yards of the hives. So I have been carrying medium honey supers a good 50 yards. That will let you know what kind of shape you are in in a hurry.
I have been looking at different kinds of hand trucks for carrying supers and maybe a hive but still be small enough to fit in the car and light enough to handle easily. I think I have found something that may do the job.
I have tried it with one full honey super in a field and it seems to work pretty well.

Just some thoughts.
