Da Forktruck

IMG_0097

Here’s our forktruck.  We’ve had it for about 7 years or so.

Yes, it’s covered with rust.  New forktrucks can operate in manufacturing plants away from salt water conditions like we operate and look brand new 10-15 years later but operating on the dock exposed to the elements and with the salt water mist from the tanks covering everything, they just turn to rust.

A new forktruck would cost about $30,000 and would look exactly like ours within a couple of years down our dock.  Salt water just eats away at everything.
