8843 Fork lift truck


This is a pneumatic fork lift truck that's quite well done. It has one pneumatic cylinder to rise the load, steering and tilting of the forks. What else could a fork lift need?

Unfortunately the mounting of the 2x4 pneumatic pressure/suction divider is unfortunate. I broke it when I disassemble the set once. This shouldn't be a problem with today's pneumatics since the 2x4 brick is long gone ,)

I had a lot of fun with this set.

Year 1984, unknown number of pieces.
