Default Picked up at work today.

The company I am working for has a policy of not repairing pallet jacks. For the cost of a new one, fixing one is not cost effective. So I offered to pay scrap value for them. This was a couple of weeks ago. Last night I showed up for work and was told I could have them.
Three 5500lb. capacity pallet jacks.
Photo#1 OEP brand.
Photo#2 Mobile brand.
Photo#3 Mobile brand.
The OEP one I think needs fluid, the two Mobile ones need the bearings replaced in the front rollers.

So? What is the scrap value of a P-jack there? It may make a difference on the suckage amount.

Thanks guys.
Total weight for scrap value around 450#.
Been looking for a used one for years, but they were usaully priced too high or total junk.
Will take off one of the good front rollers, and buy new bearings(8) for both of the Mobile (yellow). The OEP (tan) one most likely just needs the fluid topped off, I have a quart of fluid in the shop. Will most likely keep one of the yellow ones and the OEP one, and give the other yellow one to my neighbor.
Dan.

We have at least three that say it, so it must be true.
