Re: loading bean boxes on tender?

Be careful using extensions, if you make them only a few inches longer you'll reduce your capacity by as much as 50 percent.  Our forklift is rated for 5000 pounds and has longer forks, but we still have trouble loading in our gravity box, and it's pretty scary holding 2000 pounds 8+ feet in the air.  I've seen some neighbors use the conveyor off the tender to load itself.  Unverferth has that option, others I've seen use a small auger/belt conveyor to load rather than lifting overhead.  Often times it's cheaper (and safer) to go that route.
