Looking at a forklift

If a 3500 is harder to sell, it should be easier for you to buy. :)

At the cycle dealership we had a forklift that must have been about a 3000 unit that was used to move the crates around. That was enough to lift the crated touring bikes but was small enough to maneuver in tight quarters. A forklift that was too big would have been a real pain in that small area.

Buy it. That is a very good forklift. I operated one just like for several years in a department that had about 20 of them. Nice ride, smooth controls and seldom any of them broke down.

I don稚 know what you壇 need to move that a 3500 pound lift wouldn稚 lift. Keep in mind it痴 rated to do that to full height every day. It値l probably lift double that much.

Nobody would ever need more than a 3500 pound lift?

10,500 seems way high for that unit, I know local pricing varies but those seem to go for around half that in my area unless it's certified from a dealer, and even then it's still not that much.

I was looking a forklifts earlier this year, lucked out and found an older diesel 5k Nissan with larger solid tires. Was able to get it cheap because the hyd. pump was leaking into the crankcase. Resealed the pump and it's good to go, only thing I wish it had was a 3stage mast instead of a 2, lift height is only little over 11ft but works for most of what I need. Works well in the gravel outside of the shop.
Came with 6ft forks which are awesome.
It took awhile to find, but was able to get it for $1500 because of the hyd. leak.

Well they make a forklift to move shipping containers but the op said he only wanted to lift 2800 pounds. A 3500 pound lift that will probably lift 5000 or more will lift the vast majority of anything most people need to move.

I made 7 foot slip on forks for my machines. Soooo handy

I used mine today to sling a Toyota cab out of a trailer, it was a craigslist freebie that wouldn't fit on my pickup bed trailer (well it would have, but would have been a good candidate for the hauling things wrong thread). Put one 8' fork extension on and used a 2" ratchet strap through the windows. The center of weight was about five feet out from the mast and the cab is probably 600 pounds or better.
