    There's a lot of stupidity in that video. How that guy escaped without getting hurt is a miracle in itself.

    Completely intentional. He was traveling at full speed with the mast extended to max then slammed on the brakes. This was another "watch this" or "hold my beer" moment. You could tell by how fast he jumped out to try to right the truck.

The second an order is received it should have already been shipped. If a few safety precautions happen to be overlooked as long as the product is out the door before the ink is dry the company receives a higher profit margin, parish the thought of upper management not receiving a higher bonus than their previous bonus, after all they can't be expected to maintain their lifestyle on a mere salary which is only 2o times more than the mid level management receives can they?
    The CFO would probably say... "... just buy a new forklift, take it out of his paycheck. He said he knew how to operate those..."

    There it is again; Safety Third, exactly as Mike Rowe describes. I'd take it from his check, repairs or replacement because there is 100% evidence.
    But the "Said he knew..." stuff ended decades ago. Have to qualify on everything above electric pencil sharpener.

    I've known some who wouldn't be able to even get a c rating on electric pencil sharpeners
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    Humm, I'll probably have to give myself some extensive training on my floor model, but I was thinking about the battery operated kind carried in a back pack

    Yup. Same. Standing there in person, however, it dwarfs the trailer.
