Would like to replace the yard forklift. The Bonser we have had for the last 35 years has served us well but struggling to get parts now. What make would you recommend please? Something like a Hyster 2.5? The Bonser is diesel but could be gas?

Dont get gas unless you actually have too for buildings, gas is always a pain in the arse especially in colder damp weather and age does them no favours at all.

Diesel is far better or electric even!

I have a daewoo 2.5 ton diesel truck for the yard. Bought second hand has around 8k hours on it. Used every other day perhaps. Seems a nice built machine. Came from LBG machinery in Suffolk nice enough place to deal with I’ve found.
They were in 96/98/00 (can’t remember exactly)when a copy of the caterpillar lift truck built in Korea under licence not sure on the later ones
