I have this Mobility Big Dipper, these were used at CO-OP's for loading fertilizer. With the cylinder position you would never guess that this little thing can lift 2000lbs with out even thinking about it. The hydraulics could lift more but the back end comes up.

Two of those Big Dippers setting down the road unused . I think these were powered with Ford industrial engines. They can lift a lot but I sure wouldn't want to go very far on one of them. Short wheelbase and no suspension at all.

Yeah the are a rough little bugger, the run 16mph and they will about bounce you out of the seat!.

These ran the same engines as the 600 series fords, it is a 45hp engine

I can remember when they used these down at the elevator. Poor guys were just about beat to death driving them. Still makes me shake my head just thinking about it.  :(
