Structure / Function:
Based on the crane principle, as a mobile transport and lifting device. The telescopic height-adjustable stand is equipped with a mechanical double cable winch.
With the adjustable return brake (red lever on the crank), the cable winch can be blocked against involuntary run-off and loosened or tightened again in a targeted manner depending on the weight.
The frames are lifted horizontally without tilting by means of two parallel traction cables.

Thanks to its large wheels, the Spatz D400 Beehive lifter (wheel diameter 400mm) is particularly suitable for zum kräfteschonenden Transport in unwegsamen Gelände.
It supports beekeepers with the usual lifting work at the apiary. Also for the energy-saving removal and loading of honey trays or entire hives.

Powerful guidance of the Z. Jack with the help of the handlebar grip:
In addition to the standard handle above the cable winch, there are handles on the side of the frame lift column of the Spatz D400. They enable safe and effort-saving guidance of the frame lifter during transport, even in uneven corridors.


Space-saving transport of the Z. jack in the boot:
Push the Beehive lifter together on the telescopic stand and lock it in place. If the storage space is tight, it can be dismantled into two parts suitable for the boot by loosening a locking screw.

Application at the apiary with a few simple steps:

  1. Adjusting the required lifting height on the telescopic stand.
  2. Starting up the Z. Jack to the booty
  3. Lower the scissor grab to about 10cm above the frame to be lifted.
  4. Clamp the cable winch (red clamping lever on the crank).
  5. Unlock the scissors-type grab (push the locking ring into the centre of the axle).
  6. Lift the frame(s) up to the stop under the winch.

Now the lifted frames can be moved away from the working area behind the hive.

To drain the frame(s), slightly release the winch brake (on the red clamping lever).
