Default Clark st30?

Got an electric forklift near me listed for $900. I'm only interested because it lifts to 11ft . I currently have 3 pallet stackers and none of them lift as high as I would like. My polebarn has 14ft walls and I was wanting to have the top shelf at 10ft. Anyone have any good or bad experiences? It has a larger footprint than the stacker which is my only real hangup. If I were to get it I'm sure I could sell the stackers to cover its cost.

I don't know anything about the machine, but my concerns would be:

1. What is the health of the battery?
2. Do you have the power needed to run the charger?
3. What does it cost to replace the battery?

I am assuming a charger comes with the machine.

The listing states it's 12v. I can always parallel some standard batts if need be. I'm going to look it over after work today, will let yall know what I find out. Yes it has the charger.

Well we came to an agreed $600. It's in great condition for a 1966 model. I pick it up Friday after work.

I don't Facebook. reading the picture.

I don't know what 11' mast height translates to, I suggest you ask them what is the highest height it will stack a pallet.
once you hook the forks on you may loose 2 feet.


As for 12 volt (6 cell). I know 12 volt car battery's have 6 cells
but in this case I would assume it takes 6 12volt battery's which is likely 36volt golf cart motors.

Its 3500lb capacity would lead me to think its overall weight is 5-6 thousand pounds.

It's 11'4" to the bottom of the forks all the way up. The battery uses industrial quick connections. The battery itself is 12vv. I saw no evidence of hyd leaks but I did notice the zerks were utilized indicating to me it has been maintained. I can easily sell one of my other pallet stackers that doesn't do what I hoped they'd do, reach 10ft to cover the cost of this one.
