If you’ve always wanted your own forklift, long time reader Rick may have found your chance. He posted this awesome busted-ass forklift from eBay as a more Toolmongerly option than today’s crank-up hand truck — and for less cash to boot!
The good news: there’s a Buy It Now price of just $650, and the seller claims it does indeed run.
The bad news: “The forks do not go all the way down without weight on them” and “the machine has no brakes on it” — it “needs a little tender loving care.” Oh yeah, and it’s pick-up only in Lincoln, Arkansas.
But none of this is anything a dedicated Toolmonger couldn’t overcome. And as Rick says, “Which would you rather tell people you have? A forklift or a ‘hand truck with a crank?'”
