Alright what are some cool shit you can see in warehouses?

Years ago I went in a Napa auto parts and the associates would gather up tons of little components (relays, fuses, bulbs) in these custom fabricated scooters with baskets on the front, and another basket/ truck bed thing in the rear. Looooong wheelbase they were really fucking fun to use. Policy was "no excessive speed".
Another warehouse had beach cruisers with custom trailers, similar deal. Wide open aisles, but again, small little parts where forklifts wouldn't make sense.

Found this, but this is too well designed. What they had at NAPA was pretty damn slick. All stainless steel and super heavy duty and overbuilt I loved them

Not even close. I've known people who drove a forklift every day for 20 years and didn't deserve to be called a forklift operator. You are either born a forklit operator or you will never be one.

I used to ride by a marina w/ one of these. It's kind of exciting when they drive right up to the edge, to place the boat in. You almost think they're going to tip.

How many years do you think that this cart was in service before HR had them weld the anti wheelie bar on the back, because workers kept riding it like a grocery cart, falling back, and cracking their skul?

why even attach wheels, just a bar that sticks out is enough to prevent the cart from tipping

I have used this exact model, can confirm they are fucking awesome to ride, especially with hard rubber tires that have new wheel bearings.

You do have to watch out going around turns at high speed if the front is full of heavy shit because it can tip over.
>>
>>1734635
That isn't a wheelie bar, you stand on that piece like a skateboard and kick to go forward. it's articulated where it attaches to the cart so you can go around turns.

I used to pretend I was fighting the queen alien with my mech-loader in one of these.
Also used to crank the speed up and drive dangerously fast through the wearhouse until some pussy complained.

That's a nice one, at Lowe's we had the ones with only the shitty hip pad that you leaned against. Everyone called it the 'star wars' but no one knew why.

I wonder if new indoor models (Yale and others) are all steer by wire nowadays, or power steering is still the standard for base models.

You might thinks its useless, but try moving huge amounts of plants all day without using a motorized one...
