Default guess i forgot to introduce myself

So i was creepin around the site and seen this section, i guess i skipped over this part lol. I'm Tom from Lafayette, Indiana. I work for Caterpillar Inc driving a forklift.
I started off with a 1990 red ford ranger 2.9 5sp. did some bondo work, and painted it about 4 diff colors, ended up primer black by the time i was done. Sold that one and bought a 1993 red ford ranger xlt 4.0 4x4 with 33s on the back and 31s on the front and found out that the 4x4 dont work too well with that tire setup....
I recently traded that truck and my saturn in for a 2007 silver ford ranger xlt extended cab 4.0 4x4 5sp AND I LOVE IT!

our training is very "loose" for the trucks. everyone is trained on all 3 trucks at the same time and boom your "certified". i wish we could turn up the speed on ours, they are set to 5.4 mph. someone got smart and watched maintenance enter the password once and changed them all to about 7mph i believe. lol that dont seem like much of a change but when your used to 5.4, 7 mph is flyin!

ours are all really slow because they have to be "safe" since we are using them around customers. BUT every summer we get a rental from cat for our garden dept because we do so much work during the summer we need another one. Theres cops that are always in our store so we asked one of them to clock the forklift he clocked it at 14.8. I <3 this forklift!!!! I go so fast sometimes i dont even think about it and take a sharp turn and i almost flip it and it scares the shit out of me!!!!!

I read somewhere they can get up that high but we cant get them to change the speed anymore The old CAT reach trucks will go faster because they are limited by something other than the user (i think a PLC?)
Those ones wont "3 wheel" around a corner, but the current ones will if its going fast enough.

-Best 2 hours spent at work = leaky hydraulic hose leaving a puddle of oil + 100% battery + electric driven forklift!
