    Just read this again...

    Hoses...???

    Picked up a Raymond reach for $500.00 as scrap price.

    Battery was toast and later got $450.00 for it.

    That bugger has a million hoses in it and almost every one leaked.

    Assume all will need replacement.

    Would it be reasonable to assume, if all hydraulic hoses are in good condition, that the forklift would be able to still perform at its capacity? Or, as forklifts "age", does their capacity decrease?

    Thanks in advance.

    Lift chains on the other hand do lose capacity with age and neglect (lack of lube), and they don’t fail gently.
