    Homemade Electric Forklift

    Here is my homemade electric forklift. It runs on two 12v car batteries. The lift capacity is about 1000 lbs if the load is centered back on the forks. Otherwise you need a counterweight on the rear. Hope you like it!

    Super this little forklift to Robert62, I went to see the site where this object with his explanations, unfortunately, this site is planted in the middle of my visit. I'll have to return later. Really clever!
