    I love doing engines with a forklift, side shift and boom tilt let you position the engine perfect with no physical effort like a cherry picker.

    I had one of those fold up things fold right up on me with a Ford FE on it. Those things are dangerous.

    I have worked in small spaces and I've always had room for a decent forklift. At times I've had 2 and 3 forklifts. I've never been drawn to the little Namco style lifts. I feel I would always be pushing it to lift more than it's designed to.

    Today i brought home a Namco 1515 or 2015, not sure, it's stamped both on the name plate. It's pretty old. Serial 62,XXX something. Seems pretty unmolested, but needs some TLC. Not too bad for $200. Cost more than that to go get it. Diesel costs $$$!!! I'll post pics as soon as i get it situated.

    NICE! I was trying to figure out how to go get another one that was in TN a couple weeks ago. Somebody beat me to it.

    Was that the one that was in Smyrna? I liked that one a lot, but not the price.

    That was the one i was thinking, but i thought it said Smyrna, TN. I remembered that because the first job i applied to out of college was at Nissan in Smyrna. It had a 16' mast on it i think. Probably the same one.

    Yea, it had the triple-mast. And was a factory gasoline powered unit. I wanted it pretty bad. Just couldn't pull the logistics off swiftly enough.
