Yesterday we said goodbye to an old friend. We purchased this forklift in 1979 and it has been a workhorse for us! It has had some trouble over the years but we always were able to fix it and get it back to work. It has some transmission problems now and just isn’t worth the money to fix it so we had to put it out to pasture.
We delivered it to Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers for their upcoming auction on November 14th & 15th. We told them about the transmission problem and they will probably put it in their salvage section. It does run and goes forward but only sometimes reverses! We put a new transmission in it before and a new engine once, maybe twice; it’s hard to remember. But it was a great piece of equipment! We’ll miss you Ol’ Yeller!
