    Default Tailift brand?

    There's a used 4k forktruck local to me that I'm considering buying. Be about right for my small shop but I've never heard the brand, Tailift?

    Anyone know anything about these?

    We have one. They're built with Nissan motors and other parts. Ours gets daily use and has held up well over the last 12-15 years. We have a service company come out and work on ours every 4-6 months. Some hydraulic and motor issues over the years, but nothing that ever took it out of service.

    I don't know what they go for but I'd treat it like any other machine-tool. See if everything works and there's no major leaks. Anything that can't be checked or is a known issue, assume the worst in terms of $$$, and/or be prepared for a fun project. Check if there's a company local to you that services Tailift specifically so if you need parts or help working on it, you have the connection.

    It might be a little far for you, but we use these guys:
