    Fantastic! - with VFD do they then become 3 phase machines or does the VFD offer the option to go with a single phase input?

    Some other tips - I look first at the Estop circuit if there's going to be powered motion. I'm not smart enough to understand safety project/safety logic so I just use good old hardwired circuits...

    For that distance of travel and back I would look into some ladder-y racks to get that bar-stuff on top of the cab and no stickout.

    You can then tie it down better and no sweat, just drive. Sell...

    Hyster, Clark usually have +25% extra @ 24" center "unadvertised" from my various attempts at testing them.

    With that you'd be just adequate to do the job.

    Gotta be very careful at the limit as...

    Does the wiring from the throttle solenoid go back to a central point or CPU area? Not sure if that's still intact, seems like it would need a relay if its a 12vdc actuated device, that relay could...

    I was in ATL last week and saw that exact truck sporting a Gexpro logo on it.

    Are you sure its not a C-500 or a C500-50? I think that's a lot more common model number in Clarks.

    At upper left is a C500-30 and I previously owned a C500-40.

    Do you have a picture of the...

    One issue with a traditional curtainside 53' trailer is that the back end has a triangulated brace structure to resist the force of tensioning the curtain (its almost like a load binder deal at the...

    I think that directionally, any psi will work.

    the machining center coolant-thru setups use hundreds of psi to blast the chips out of there via fluid flow and pressure, as the overall goal is...

    Starting with the truck pictured, one could also build the box with a slot in the roof and removable roof panel(s). It sounds like a pain to get them all sealed up so it doesn't leak like mad going...

    I'm not sure a change from cushion tires to pneumatics can be done as a bolt-on fix.

    All I have seen is that the tires get significantly larger in diameter when the pneumatics are hooked up, the...

    I think a person would do very well to have the monorail in 2 sections with an external outboard support that's site-assembled.

    So part of the monorail exists permanently inside the trailer. 2...

    Not that you really want to do this but a 24" part (2' dia) has pi*d = 6.28 feet of surface-feet for every rev.

    I moved all of mine loaded. It takes a smaller fork cross-section to get underneath it, the big 2" thick hogs won't go under freely.

    I just spaced the forks as wide as I possibly could mainly to...

    I would hit it all over with LPS2. LPS-3 is also good (better actually long-term) but will build to a waxy film unless you keep wiping it around.
