Default White Forklift owners around here?

Just curious if any here have or have had White Forklifts?

I have a MY40 White forklift. This has been a real good forklift for me,$200.00- $300.00 in repairs over more than 25 years of use.

Well, after looking at it this morning and getting a better feel of just how cold it was, I opted to let it sit for warmer weather.

DJ' told me again this morning what the capacity was, and darn if I haven't forgotten already again. (and getting old has nothing to do with that problem)

I do know that the boom has 3 sections and has a very high reach, has good rubber left on the tar's and from DJ's prospective will crank, run and work just fine like it is. But, knowing me, I'm sure I'll find some reason to take something apart and piddle.

I've had pics since last weekend and took a few more this AM, but may take a nap between the postings.

Lars I may just pick your brain a tad concerning this lift as it seems it will find it's future here at the farm.

I wonder if I could mount an FEL in lieu of the forks as I could darn sure dump from a lofty height.

Went to AC class with a guy that ran a tractor repair. He made a loader bucket for a lumber yard that used the forks as a mount . No pictures as he is departed.
