Be handy in many places.  I laughed when the video mentioned the "optional side shift" mast.

I like what I can see. I question the durability of the wheels ? That is what seems to get torn up the most at places I've been. Neat concept and appears to be pretty slick :thumbs:

Definitely has a place in the warehouse.  Wonder about the durability and replacement cost of those wheels though.  I would sure test one for them for a year or so.

That is cool.

The environment at my work place would tear those wheels up in a heartbeat, we replace the normal ones now fairly regularly, between rough floors and chemicals, they don't last long.

There must be a very good reason that they did not show it outside in gravel or rough surfaces.

That's pretty neat we have had alot of fork trucks at work and this would be useful . I have seen one a few years ago that did the same thing (traveled in any direction ) It had 4 wheels that were on a steep camber and they rotated 180 degrees

Pretty cool.  Would work on a nice smooth concrete floor.  I wonder how it would handle if you sprayed the floor down with water, or on a wet ramp.

Might work good in some places but where I used to work I would give it a week and it would be junk --also kind of small for our work--smallest we had was 6 ton up to 40 TON  the biggest fork truck in the city of Milwaukee.

We have a Taylor ty620s at one of the mines. 31 tons. It's a monster. 80,000lber musts been huge.
