No worries folks, I welded the lift forks in place before I went under.  Now if I could only figure out how to get it down! :oh_shucks:

I went down town this am and showed the pic to the guy. He insists he's smarter than all of you.

 

I'll list his obituary when it comes out.

Our forklifts at work will not lower without the engine running.  There is a safety lock built in that is likely required by law.  Those lifts might be old enough they don't have that safety feature.   Still,  it doesn't appear to be the best idea he ever had.   

I also wonder,  Is he cutting the gas tank open with that torch?
