A forklift/front end loader

 

If I was closer I would bid on it.

Seems like it would be handier if the bucket mounted to the mast. It doesn't look like you would get much height out of it like that.

Great idea. Pretty crude mounting.

I like the "all terrain forklift" part.  I ran one similar to that and believe me, they are worthless off of a hard surface.

I was just going to say the same thing. If would be real useful to have around for 510$. Maybe it could be modified to make it work better on rough terrain.

So VERY true!  They hit a puddle of water in dirt, and they are stuck!  Often stuck when there is no puddle.

Yeah it is all terrain as long as that terrain is perfectly flat and dry.

Yes, but if one needed the hydraulic components off it, they were worth the selling price, then the buyer STILL has his money back from scrapping price!

We almost bought it for parts to the same model Clark forklift we use in our plant. I forgot it ended early Monday morning and missed it. It was well worth what it brought.
