Last year I needed a forklift and was able to find a decent one in South Carolina on Ebay. It is a Cat and with shipping I had less than $5K into it. I just did a quick search and spotted this one. I don't know what your really looking for but... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...815183344&rd=1

I actually considered that one. The problem is that I need to pick from 11'. That one is just short.

I never bought anything from him. I sold him a used Peterbilt truck 5-6 yrs ago. He has a huge operation, but that is as much as I know. HP sounds like he has good connections. Just an option.

Tim,
They're some forklift junkyards out there that
will sell used transmissions.

Some of these guys also sell rebuilt.

Removing the transaxle is a pretty major job,
unless you have another forklift there to
remove the mast, and then the transaxle.

$$$$$,

We did a transmission on a XM (newer than a XL) model
recently, as I recall, it was in the $ 2K neighborhood.

Quite honestly,
$ 600 isn't that great of deal with a major
component bad.

That machine went out of production around
10 years ago.

There are ton's of used 5000# cushion tired forklifts out
there, (most lift a minimum of 10 feet 10 inches) you shouldn't have too hard of a time finding a decent piece.

Thanks for the advice J. Guess I'll pass on that one. I was kinda liking it because it came with power steering. These older cheap machines are hard to find with power steering.

Mike-that issue has been solved! The mold will be out shortly after our loto trip.

BTW-what is a cushion tire? A solid tire is a solid tire, isn't it?

cushion versus pneumatic...

we put a rebuilt trans in a CAT T120C ten years ago. It still cost $2700 for the trans and that was a swap out. They aren't cheap. If I had been slow in the shop, we'd have tried to tackle the innards ourself, but this crap always happens when you can't spare a split second...

How about a BOAT. I think you don't need to expend any more energy on anything but a boat. Now get cracking. This is what I think of the person who posted before me, whoever it is.

Cord, solid tire is a "all rubber tire" ... solid from the rim to the outer edge whereas a pneumatic tire is a tire that has either air inside like a conventional tire or is filled with foam to lessen the chance of a flat.

We have pneumatic tires on ours because it is easier to ride the lift out on the asphalt. A solid tire is really meant for smooth surfaces only like a warehouse or trucking terminal. A solid tire lift can be run outdoors but you need to be extra careful as there is no give in the tires and every bump is felt on the lift.
