Well, I talked to my brother about the fork lift. He said that he doesn't know anything about the drive system in it, but that the battery is the problem, in that it will not hold a charge. Apparently it has a single 36V battery that costs more to replace than the unit is worth. He said that he could get it, but doesn't know when. So I guess what I'm saying is that I don't know a whole lot more than I did before I talked to him! :blush2: Sorry if I've wasted your time.
Hey , You are not wasting anybody's time here.
Just an FYI this may be an option for your bother. I am running a 36 Volt 4000Lbs. sit drive lift truck GE
EV 1 System with six 6 Volt Deep Cycle batteries. Oviously the run time is not what you would get out of the big battery (5-6 hours) but mine only operates a couple of hours a week and it only needs to be recharged every couple of weeks. It will work for me all weekend (intermittent usage) on a full charge so it does have a bit of longevity (2-3 Hours Continuous).
Just a way to get that forklift up and running with out going to the bank for a small business loan.
Hope this helps.
That's way we are all here.
