    I bid on a Nissan in Canada that had the two stick configuration that your truck has. That's the only Nissan I've seen up close, so I just assumed that is the way Nissan did it. The specification plate was in English, so I assume it was a Canadian model truck. I got out bid on that truck and ended up with a higher capacity Yale. I didn't give it much thought until this thread came up, but I'm glad I got the Yale as the extra capacity has been put to use a fair bit.

    I don't like the European spec trucks. They have the driver in the center of the machine. U.S. spec trucks have the driver offset to the left which makes it much better when you have to travel in reverse.

    Is Europe where that started? We've got a 12.5K Cat that has the seat in the center. It's a great lift other than the seat position dead in the center. You are correct that you can't see backing up but you also can't see going forward if you have something very tall on the forks.

    My old Towmotor had a bench seat. 2 people could ride. Wish I had a pic, but I got rid of that truck a couple years ago. You just don't see that these days.

    Here's my little toad.

    That looks like a pretty solid machine. I like the 50 cent roof.

    Yale has contacted me about putting this in a museum, called it vintage. We use it every day, but i do get strange looks from truck drivers. I guess it is an odd duck. Never knew there were forklift collectors out there. Anybody know if this is really worth anything other than a used forklift?img_20171211_092417101.jpgimg_20171211_092434667.jpgimg_20171211_092517166.jpg

    RJT,

    It is a odd looking machine but it's also a very ergonomic looking machine too! Super easy access for the operator, from either side, great visibility and straight forward controls. If it actually has a 5000# rating and works well I sure wouldn't think of dumping it.

    Well I've bumped my head several times getting into this thing. Yes, it lifts 5,000 lbs and goes under a 6 foot door. Mast extends 14? feet. Apart from some upholstery work on the seat, everything is working and in good shape. If they really want it, maybe they will trade me for a newer one.

Bought from photos plus assurance that it runs. Have others with higher reach etc, but this one’s for the heavy loads that don’t need to go way up.

    That thing is cool. If Matt Helm had a forklift, it would look just like that....surrounded by scantly clad 'assistants'.

    Built our shop with a very old towmotor brand that only went up 12 feet but the second floor girders were less than 12 feet up so worked well.

    This 15K vault is about all our 55' boom 544D10 wants in close without the swing carriage and 8' forks. He left the outriggers float just above the ground just in case...

    img_3895.jpgGot my Versa-Lift 25/35 back in March of this year and am 100% happy with it.... expensive but worth the price if you move machinery.

    We've been thinking about a 25/35 ourselves. We've got a 60/80 and other lifts in the 20k-40k range but would like the compactness of the 25/35. Did you buy it new and did you get the boom with it?
