    Default Big Stuff arrived today

    I have been craving for a forklift for sometime, manual handling has its limit.

    bought this from a mechanic, 1400kg lifting capacity, small but more than what I need, it is a bit old (1990 model?) but it is in full working condition, didnt pay a lot of money for it, about 1/4 of market price.

    best thing is - it can fit in my garage!!

    Its a journey

    The fact that it fits is the most useful part.

    Slightly off topic, but I’ve often wondered what your neighbours and the local council make of what goes on in your garage?

    My next door neighbour, both left and right, belongs to a foreign family who uses them as holiday house, they come once a year for a week or so.
    other than that when I shut my garage door, the house looks just like another house in the hood, there are no dust/oil spill/paint spill outside the garage/on the driveway, I've never turned on any machines after 7pm regardless the noise, the machines are only turned on intermittently between 5pm and 7pm weekdays, and the machines are never turned on Sunday... basically I am operating within the spectrum of Council zoning regulation.... so just another guy likes to get busy in his garage

    Looks to be in very good condition, like it heaps.
    You do realise that puts on a new meaning, when your mates ask you for a lift.

    Fair enough. You are fortunate.

    It fits yes ... but it still looks like it takes up a lot of room

    yes it does take up a lot of room... I definitely have to drive it out when I am working in the workshop. although it is a small forklift it does take up about 2.5m x 1.2m clear space... I felt like I lost 5m x 2.5m when its parked inside!
