The bottle cages are outside, it's cold out there, and then have to go get the keys...

Little more research says these are probably 33 lb 'forklift tanks'.

https://www.amerigas.com/products-an...ustrial-trucks
http://www.cramerdecker.com/pdf/Prop...nder_Sheet.pdf

I thought some detail of the top layout and windows in the top flange might also help




On most of them, there are 3 windows around the top ring, and a slot for a mounting rack pin. The 2 windows near the pin slot are biggest, the one opposite the slot is smaller

I have a couple better pics, but they give way too many clues about where i work, and on what, so i'm not posting them in the open. If you need better details than these let me know.

I must try this, I have acetone by the gallon, and no I do not cook meth, I Tig weld and acetone is use to clean parts. super glue and styrene is a total bust..

in fact, acetone works better than superglue on ABS.

From the clues, I've pieced together that you work in a pillow factory and the forklift is for carrying the geese around... The crane was for the extra large geese for the extra large pillows. I'm right aren't I??

I gave too many clues, ya got me. Yeah the boom lift from earlier is used to send people up to pluck the giant geese once we drag them into the building.

Now the real question is why do i keep talking about Yales and even a giant Hyster fork, but i just show a Komatsu?

Because the komatsu belongs to Mr. Plow?

I see I have a little bit of work to do to get the top looking right for this application.

The world has been too serious, take a couple minutes to try to have a laugh.

Here's a forklift operator who only works with pallets trying to learn to handle paper rolls.


Yes, this is a joke about the reaction of Americans to the Covid-19 flu. I don't know why they picked Toilet Paper as the scarce commodity. 2020 is going to be an interesting year.

You were on a roll by the end although I can't help notice that you miss an opportunity with the *ahem* dump truck....

It wasn't just you guys.. People went nuts here too, unfortunately it was exasperated by so called personal shoppers emptying shelves to send back to China. It all started with the schools shut down in Japan which naturally meant people had to go buy stuff they wouldn't normally need much of, don't need tp at home if you live at school.. Hong Kong got nervous because all their tp comes from mainland China so they started panicking around the same time as Japan was running low on stocks, which kicked the export shoppers into high gear here, and when the ozzy drongos saw the shelves getting emptied in five seconds flat they all screamed "panic buy" and the rest is history... We're just slowly getting back to a normal supermarket stock level now, kinda...

That was awesome, Frizzen! Well done. loved the little "show off" of the VW, too.

I would like to suggest one thing tho.. when the forklift is sitting still, the forks should be down, tips all the way down on the ground (tilt forward a little) so no one walking by can run into them & get hurt... basic forklift safety.

Rover, I'd wanted to load another roll into the bed of the DUMPtruck, but the lift clutch didn't like the weight of Mega-rolls. I'm going to say there was a 3 roll limit per order.

Heartless, Yes i should have. I also shouldn't have moved something heavy enough to cause understeer. Safety Third. During firming everyone else in the warehouse was on break, and i'm juggling 4 radios and trying to mostly stay in frame.

I figured someone would call me on not dropping and repicking the roll that went in VW so i could get clearance and not hang it up on the tailgate. The owner would have been mad!

Jerry, thank you, i'm glad you all enjoyed it.

The other day I'd stumbled across a video of a Model Train guy running flatbeds of TP all over his house... hmmm, how can i do that?

Buying limits... You know the world has gone nuts when they're limiting the number of jars of Vegemite per transaction..... And I'm almost out

Was a nice bit of fun Frizz, we've all got to find something to laugh about these days, nice work mate.

Heh. I know, right? "Mega-rolls... Do you even lift?" Maybe a propane forklift could handle more weight.

Limiting the amount of Vegemite sold to Aussies? Pretty sure that's how you get huge wide spread riots happening down under.

I partially blame this guys trains making the last run to Costco...
