Mark repaired and refurbished our old 200MH loader and has given it a new lease of life. He has installed a new winch motor and replaced the older type levelling system with the same system as is on the later models, and at a very reasonable price. As our loader is mounted on the back end of the tray it receives a pounding on our western Qld roads; he has beefed up the construction in critical areas. I am very happy with the result and I am confident that the loader will give me many more years of service. I am sure it will prove to be a good business decision.
In the fall of 2009 after an intense, heavy honey flow, Ian bought a F550 truck with a 16’ deck and installed an Ezyloader 300. With this machine Ian eliminated the physical labour in lifting honey supers, and adopted the escape board method to remove the bees from the boxes. This transition from working boxes with Bee Go and blowers to a non-evasive method of clearing bees was an intrigal shift in Ian’s business management and has allowed Ian and his workers to stand straight at the end of a heavy production season.
Ian has also switched all the hives over to a two hive migratory pallet arrangement and now transports everything with the use of the Ezyloader on his truck. Loading and unloading is done quick and easy as there is no need to pull a lift tractor behind between yards."
