The forklifts these weights are going on are pretty large forklifts. That's why we told them they needed a bigger forklift. They have two big ones and are gonna switch these weights back and forth depending which one goes out on the job. They said they have another, larger forklift they want to add 4,000 lbs. to, we'll see. What gets me is they are putting all this weight on a 1 1/2" pin with the 4 pieces holding it all together. I don't trust the pin.
