Here’s another video of it. Just showing how it operates. I will have a simple set of forks for holding the hives soon but for now the strop will do the job so long as I put it in the correct position.?

What to look for in a crane? Does the arm need to be hydrolic extendable? Just toying with the idea

It would help but not critical to having a functioning crane

How close would you need to get to work if the arm is not extendable?

I'd say at a guess that depends on how long the arm is, how strong it is, how heavy the load, how robust the mounting.......

You see mine in the video. It has several extension options. At full extension where it is shown easily lift 200kg. Lift height would be about 3.0m and reach of about 2.5m
