dwrash: They call them towmotors around here.
AugieDoggyDaddy: dwrash: They call them towmotors around here.Towmotor is a brans of forklift. The wharehouse I worked at had a bunch of Towmotors, and everyone called them Towmotors, even the one made by Clark.
TheGreatGazoo: That's one way to negate spike strips.How fast do forklifts travel? 5 mph?
Jeng: I was expecting something actually um, safety related.Dude tried to drive a forklift home, not really a safety issue, more of a theft issue.Here is a picture of what a forklift safety issue may look like.[www.onlinecertificateprograms.org image 508x392]
Englebert Slaptyback: This is the song written for the train chase,This is the chase: Rocky and Ken,He tried to kill me with a forklift! Ole!
PolyHatSnake: My job includes gratuitous forklift usage. This was much tamer than I imagined. Thanks for the link to Klaus, that was great.
Oldiron_79: I've seen someone die of crush injuries from a fork lift.He was standing on the wrong side of the yellow OSHA safety poles and got crunched between the forklift and the safety pole.Killed by a safety pole talk about Irony.
skrame: Add me to the list of people who have dropped things with forklifts. I've dropped a pallet of paper towels (I was still raising the forks when I went under the pallet, and hit the beam) and a few other things; I've tipped over a Yerf-dog gokart (that had a shiat pallet and wasn't really my fault); and I've tipped over a double-stack of pallets of bottles of water. That was the worst because I was driving like half a mile per hour to be careful, and then some of the bottles buckled and the entire pallet dropped. Water everywhere.
chevydeuce: TheGreatGazoo: That's one way to negate spike strips.How fast do forklifts travel? 5 mph?Depends on the size....most IC powered ones will go at least 20mph easily.
PolyHatSnake: Once saw a new guy take a corner too sharp with an elevated load, laid an 11,000 pounder over on its side. Nobody hurt, but new dude was sure shook up.
