When confronted with putting a couple hundred pounds of wheel weights on a tractor like this...

Normal men get on the phone and call 3 or 4 buddies, and hope they can wrestle it into position before the days end. However, When you confront Mr Guider with the same task...well he just says No Problem and gets this...

and a few more photos to kind a get the feel for it...

Now what you can't see is that the forklift is a complete gorgeously restored to Guider perfection and there are NO Flaws to it of any kind. I know it is one of...if not Steve's favorite. But then again, he has so many gems ...it may be his favorite, but for me he has about 30 of my favorites...ok maybe more. Yep his tractors are that nice...all of them!

Did Steve Fab that one or is it a Restore?
Either way it is one nice piece of equipment.

Do you guys realize...that is one of a kind...original Case Equipment?

There were supposed to be more made but as of this writing 1 is known to exist Yep ^ one. Others say they have seen em but no one produces a pic...IMHO there is one and THAT is the one.

All of Steves stuff, (ok almost all I know he is workin on a couple project tractors) look like the 2 you see here

Thanks for posting the pics of that forklift! I now remember where I'd seen Steve Guider's work before! His forklift...as well as the rest of his amazing collection was featured in the January / February 2009 issue of LAGC magazine!! I drooled over it then...and again just now a little LOL! Thanks again NutCASE!
