Not sure if you have a collection going already, but they are handy as hell to have around, and at $25 whoo hoo !

I think I have 4, non electric/push/pull, 3 crowns, a BT, and I guess maybe I have 5, got a European one too, that is crazy how it works.

I have those even though in the same shop, I have a small gas forklift, still use the pallet jacks.

Im glad I dont have a .gov surplus sale near me, damn would I be in trouble !!!!

Any known issues with it?

Picked it up today, aside from the power block, everything else seems to be good to go!

I didn't have time to tinker too much, but the battery connections were ripped out of the quick connect and the batteries were low on voltage. I will be up at the barn testing it out tomorrow to see if it functions, then I will make a battery for it(if it works).

It was $30 with bidders premium, but the golf cart batteries scrap out for $11 each here($44). They are too dang $$$ to replace for the use it would see at the barn, so car batteries will do fine.

AT the WORST case, I got a nice batt charger, hyd pump and cool drive motor to play with. Gigitty gigitty

When I worked at Kroger I saw a guy take a wall down with one.

It is so simple, you wouldn't think about how dangerous they can be. I have been thinking it would be great to make an attachment to wheel the trailers around. In the barn it will live in, there is 6+ trailers. The lifting and wheeling around part would be great for trailers!

Well the tagout said do not use, will not lift. I applied 24v directly to the lugs of the hyd pump and it lifted. Now I just need to find a pair of car batteries that will fit in the tray and I'll see how she does.

I tried bringing the golf cart batteries back one by one and go figure, the last 2 wouldn't hold a charge.

Last thing, anyone ever see one of these connectors? Its hard to see but between the big lig connection there is a much smaller one, I believe to be low current 12v for the control circuitry.

Guess the workers that were using it just decided to get rid of it and say it is broke.

I have never seen that exact Battery end, but years ago when my dad was scrapping batteries, we would cut those ends off the bigger forklift batteries and I put one of those under the hood of my truck, and ran some 4 awg wire to the back of the truck and put one of those ends on the back bumper. Then made up a 15' long jumper cables from some 1-0 welding lead and no one could ever borrow my jumper cables!:-).

And it was always funny to back up to someone's car to give them a jump start without having to pop the hood. Having the power run to the back came in real handy when I had a 8000# winch on the trailer to pull up cars and anything else I wanted to load.

I expect your are right about the small connector.
