1988 Baker/Linde B30-PL forklift
3000 lbs capacity
Hydrostatic drive..which means no transmission..but there are two big
assed hydraulic motors, each of which drives one front wheel. Three
pedals..takes some getting used to..no accidents yet..but came close...
Came home on one BIG roll off. Rated at 25,000 lbs. Good driver, good
price, works all through South and Central California.
Still got bugs, but got it running well enough to move about 8000 lbs of
Stuff this afternoon.
Has a side shift on the forks, but the hoses are missing and are capped
off. No idea why..shrug..Ill start looking for a set of hoses.
Nearly got it stuck too...got into some loose soil. But managed to get
her out. Country boys dont need 4x4.
Forks are only 36"...I suspect the Korean fellah doing the happy dance,
who was storing it for the owner..ah...appropriated the original forks,
the fuel shutoff solenoid, the LP gas line and the tank. When I asked
him why the forks he had "stored inside" were yellow..not white..he
started looking at everything but me..
Specs call for 40-42" forks...that extra 4-6" is gonna be missed.
"A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them;
the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences."
