This is the 600cc engine used in the 3 wheel lift truck. The truck was a scissor lift early hydraulic and later worm lift. Used in Aust for warehouse and foundry. My version is yellow but under the yellow paint is army green. Drives through front wheel turn steering 180 for reverse. Somewhere on the forum is a pic of mine.

It is one of the worm-lift trucks.

I found it when we sold the farm,I wish I had known what it was when I sold the pallet jack, I wonder if he wants it. Any idea what it might be worth or know anyone who is looking for one.
