    When I swapped propane suppliers, they brought me out one of their 400 gallon tanks. I was looking the tank over, and although it had new paint, the tank itself was a 1968 model. When I questioned...

    They probably can't be refilled around here either, but I have a big 400 gallon LPG tank and I fill them myself.

    It's the way of the future on larger cranes especially. When you get into larger cranes with big blocks, it takes away a lot of the crane capacity just for the weight of the cable. Most people...

    I didn’t know that. I guess all of mine are old enough that will run upside down.

    I'm not familiar with this particular model, but it has been my experience that most don't have the lifting eye. We usually pick overhead by using a strap around the top of the "C", if the guards are...

    If you use a BBQ cylinder, just use it upside down. That will allow the use of liquid. I you just run it on vapor, you won't have much power, as the engine won't get the fuel it needs when under...

    Probably more than $300.

    You’re cheapest rate will be through a broker, but I refuse to use them. It does no good to save a few hundred in shipping cost, only to have a crew and a forklift...

    Conestoga is way better than a flatbed. Tarps can scratch up machine and damage machine. We ship almost all Machinery loads on Conestoga.

    That being said, a small item like we are talking about...

    I wouldn’t want 500 lbs hanging off the side of a small forklift, out very far. If you do go this route, seriously think about mounting some sort of counterweight, attached to the back side of the...

    Sounds like you are moving relatively small parts, but be careful, forklifts won’t lift much at all over the side without tipping.

    I think you’ll have a hard time finding something commercially...

    Yes, bubbling in normal. Just don’t have any sparks or open flame around, there is hydrogen gas in those bubbles.

    I’ve moved that brand before, but I don’t recall if it was that particular machine. Best I remember, we forked it from underneath.

    I don’t know how much this machine weighs, but I’ve skated 20,000 lb machines in containers. The floor should hold up. Most containers have a floor made out of some sort of thick plywood material,...

    Looks like you may have to just fork it underneath. It’s going to be really top heavy, so keep it level.

    Picked me up a scrap haul Friday. Plant said they just wanted it gone. 15,000 lbs of 316 stainless. Scrap yard quoted me 38 cents a pound.

    Most of the time the master cylinder will have the make and model cast right into the housing. Every forklift I've fooled with (besides Cat) has used a standard MC that can be had at NAPA. Cat has a...

    Our local scrap yard has 3 copper grades, Bare Bright (shinny spotless copper wire), #1 (still clean copper of larger sizes, can be tarnished but not burnt. #2 ( burnt copper, or even smaller sized...

    Yep, I've got 2. I'm not that rough on them though. I've seen at my local dealer where people rip the rollers out from under them, bend the cylinders, and roll beam flanges, from getting too rough...

    There is a whole lot of truth to that. Smaller forklifts can be a real pain to work on, no room. I do bet forklift mechanics make a lot better money than car mechanics.

    Do you have a pic? I haven’t messed with this particular model, but have worked on lots of mast.
    Is it a roller mounted on the outside of the mast? I know we have a Taylor with these outside...

    Well, I would submit that the load is the same on mast, regardless of the weight on the forks, if the back wheels are off the ground. In other words, if you have a 5,000 lb load at 24” center and it...

    I suspect most online calculators are so conservative as to avoid liability. I just wanted to make sure I was doing it right with my calculations.

    Forklift capacity at various load centers

    Everybody knows that forklifts are rated for X lbs at X from the face of the forks, but what do you do if you are outside those parameters? My standard equation has always been to figure the forklift...

    If you move it a bunch, I’d build a skid under it with fork pockets. If it is a very seldom move just use slings under the mounting plate.

    Looking at your drawing, the mill seems to be bolted down to the 2x6. That probably won’t work. You need the bolts to go down through the mill and the 4x4s. Even though the mill is bolted to the 2x6,...
