The 1886 Forklift that is :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:  

 

Just brought it back from the shop.  It needed a carb re-build, which I didn't want to try doing for fear of screwing it up, so I sent it out to my 'tractor guy' to get it running.

 

That, all new fuel line, a new fuel filter, and flushing out a lot of gunk from the fuel tank, and it's snortin' like it was new.

 

Engine fires instantly, and it sounds STRONG :D :D :D

 

I'll get some pics and a vid later this afternoon/early evening.

 

ETA:  I was on the phone with  #1 son helping him through his first ever "build it your self with parts" computer, so didn't get to 'play' with the FL to amount to much.  No vid yet, but here are a couple of pics.

 

The mast lifts a LOT farther than I think I would be comfy with  :D :D :D

Looks good!  I sure could use a tractor like that around my place.  How many were made?

That would come in handy if you were parking GT's on pallet racking to make better use of the floor space.

Great attachment.

I have no idea.  This is the only one any of us here on the forum have seen on a Bolens.

 

I did find a pic on the net of one on a Sears tractor, and another of just the attachment sitting on the ground.

 

These will be small:
