So I have this electric hyster forklift on my trailer which is stone dead and heavier than heck. It also won't roll. anybody know any tricks to unload this thing? I don't have anything strong enough to lift it. I can roll it off if I can get it to roll.

No actual experience, so take it for what it's worth. Might there be a dis-connect, or dis-engage feature?

i had one called an automatic. big heavy dude. main battery was shot. used 2 12 volt batteries in series to give it enough juice to unload it. ran it on a pair of deep cycle batteries after that. the huge battery was real spendy to replace, and i didnt use it long enough to drain the deep cycle batteries.

So I finally have this hyster in the shop, still on the trailer because if I unload it, may never get it back on. Looked into scrap prices, looks like scrap value is in the $8-900 range. Have the big dog battery out of it trying to charge it up if possible. There is a brake setup that is connected to the seat, still figuring out my options. I may try to set in three batteries in series as its 36 volt setup and see what happens.

Looks like the big dog battery is a gonner, won't take a charge. Swiped the batteries out of three of my tractors and hooked them up in series, forklift came to life & drove it off the trailer this morning. Glad to have my trailer back & new toy to play with! Thanks to all who responded.
