Default My 'New' Forklift

A friend of mine had this forklift that he sent out of engine work. After the engine work it ran great but wouldn't move. The place that did the work tried and tried but eventually gave up after hearing from Nissan that it needed 3 modules at the cost of 4 grand. I bought it for $3500 and sold my old Cat for $2500.

I wired a bypass around the transmission module so that it would go into gear. Works great, only real issue is that the dash lights flash when operating. I can live with that. It is the nicest forklift I have owned. 7k lift capacity. Only other problem I have encountered is that it weighs twice what my old one did and I have gotten stuck in places I never did before. The problem seems to be abating as the ground gets more compacted.Click image for larger version

I have always wanted a forklift, but I would have to get a big wheel model as I operate on gravel.

Isn't it "grate" when all those electronic controls don't work. A mechanical link would work, but that isn't "New and Improved". A three position toggle switch does the job too, but "Electronic Modules" are the latest thing, so they are "Better".

Default forklift

I bought a 4000lb Hyster diesel pneumatic forklift years ago,its been the best tool in the drawer,so to speak..I had traction issues going over soft ground with it..so I put snow chains on the just the outer wheels(dual drive wheels)and it goes anywhere now..grass,some mud, but mostly flat and level ground here. A dual drive wheel forklift is essential to me,the stability of the machine is so much greater than a single wheel lift.It looks as tho you might have solid pneumatics on the front of yours

Yeah, they are solid. Eventually I will likely change back to pneumatic tires.
