    The Working Pedal Powered Forklift
    Gear  |  Toy  

    This Pedal Powered Forklift($320) looks like a real woking and miniature Forklift! The chassis is made from durable ABS plastic, and the crank powered forks are capable of lifting up to 6 1/2 lbs. It’s limited to kids up to 55-inches. And a maximum riding weight of up to 110 lbs. 
    "This is the pedal-powered, ride-on version of a Linde 394 forklift that raises and lowers at its driver’s command. Made in Germany, its lifting fork is raised by turning a hand crank and held into place with a locking lever, tilting slightly backward to keep an included plastic 6 1/2 lb.-capacity pallet stable, just like a real forklift. Pedals power the forklift forward and backwards with a precisely engineered chain drive, its integrated eccentric keeps the chain taut for efficient power transfer to the rear axle."
