I vaguely recall some forklifts having flatheads but it has been a series of shiney object SQUIRREL days lately.

It might've been really old ones. Presumably the oldest ones I saw in recent years were fitted with Chevrolet 153 and Stovebolt Six engines.

It's been a long time I haven't seen any brand-new small flathead engine for similar appliances, but anyway, since many of those cheaper Chinese ones still rely on splash lube I guess the flathead layout could be less troublesome.
