Beehive lifter

Lifting and transporting with the Beehive lifter "Spatz"
A mobile lifting and transporting device for energy-saving support of the beekeeper.
Its application saves the bee colony unnecessary disturbances and the beekeeper valuable working time.

The telescopic height-adjustable stand is equipped with a dual-axle winch.
With the help of the adjustable return brake (red lever on the crank).
the winch is individually adjusted to the weight to be lifted.
Two parallel traction ropes ensure the horizontal lifting of the frames,
without canting them.
For transport in the car, it is often only necessary to push the telescopic stand together. For transport in the trunk, it is disassembled into handy parts in a few simple steps.
Its functional design is ideal for lifting work at the apiary,
for hiking or honey processing.
Depending on the requirements, trolleys with three different wheel sizes are available.
Our devices with "mechanical tilting" allow quick and effortless access to the brood.
For this purpose, the honey trays lying above the brood can be tilted back in the pack, as far as the stability allows.
An optional attachable support wheel allows the frame stack to be safely pulled backwards on three wheels, up to a freely accessible working area.
The scissor-type gripper mounted as standard on the unit can be adjusted to all common hive dimensions.
For the protection of sensitive surfaces of plastic hives, attachable Schong rubber profiles are used.
After loosening two screw links on the pull ropes, the scissor grab can be exchanged for a container grab for honey buckets (made of stainless steel with bow handle), or the 25- 40kg Hobock grab (made of plastic).
