    It wouldn't be all that unusual for that machine to sell for $4. Lots of CNC machines of that age can't even get a bid at auction. Sure, somebody could always sell it for scrap value, but scrap...

    There has been many good machines fail to get bids and meets the fate of the scraper, all because it cost more to move than it is worth.

    Articles said they were moving it when it happened. The ground probably gave way or they didn't have the mats set right.

    You say you don't want a lift that takes up too much space, but you would like a pneumatic tire lift. You can't have both, because a pneumatic tire lift will be twice the physical size compared to a...

    Propane runs better and offers more hp with higher compression. That being said, a gas engine will run fine on propane. Years ago they built propane specific engines, in modern times they just use...

    What that does is change the fulcrum of the forklift. All a forklift is, is a simple lever. The normal fulcrum of the forklift is center of the drive tires, which can be a foot or more behind the...

    This is true. You can effectively have the weight center on each forklift right up against the mast, if you keep the forks tilted right and both lifts stay together.

    We do this almost weekly. To...

    Anybody know anything about KOMATSU forklifts? I picked up this little 10k machine yesterday for $250. All it needs is a battery and a couple of mast rollers. Tires aren’t the best but should last a...

    I agree it would probably be much easier to just find a used setup, I wouldn’t be overly concerned with fabricating something. Fork positioners wouldn’t be considered a load carrying member, and only...

    Sounds like you have the valve, but making the forks and cylinder part of it is going to be more involved than you mention. Take a look at a forklift with fork positioners sometime and see what all...

    Inching pedals on any brand of forklift can be a real pain. It's ok to have a inching pedal, but the lift needs to also have brake pedal also. You can also get by just fine without a inching pedal at...
