I love pictures of $500 forklifts in residential driveways!

Looks like you've got plywood under the drive wheels. I'd hook up some batts and get the little rear ones on something too - they're the ones that'll do the most damage.

We only had to ship 18 km, so the price for us was $125. But scrap metal prices are much higher now than they were almost 2 years ago, so you're going to do better in that department, I suspect.

Great news, and can't wait to follow along!
