Nah, gas didn't really get stuck. This is pretty much the only way to get the stupid motor out since it's mounted underneath and the hydraulic reservoir is in the way.

Well I work for Crown so that's all we got to tip it. Takes 2 trucks, one to lift and one to catch. I've never had to tip one on it's nose before, usually have to lay them on their sides (smaller pallet trucks) to work on linkages or weld skid plates on the frame.

Where at?

The little ones I can tip over easily by hand, took a while to get it down to where it's quick, easy, and doesn't slam into the ground. The bigger ones take more work, but I figured out how to flip rider pallet trucks on their sides with 2 chains and they'll tip over smoothly without making a sound. Still no fun, especially if you forget to plug a breather cap and oil leaks out all over hell inside the trucks. Not fun.

PR's are gay. The fleet I take care of has about 25 brand new PR's. I got one on it's side right now. Gotta rebuild the linkage after they tore yet another tenon rod out of the tension bar. Trucks just hit 1 year old and already destroyed. 2 more years...

The only reason they have PR's is because they didn't feel safe on PE's. After seeing how badly they can smash the PR's up, I wouldn't feel safe either lol.

Our warehousemen are horrible about telling us when something is wrong. We only PM our lifts every 60 days and a lot of damage can be done in 60 days when a lift is ran 24 hours a day 6 days a week. Just replaced tenon bars and both risers on a PE-4500AC after waiting 3 days for parts. Our local Crown dealer SUCKS at keeping parts in stock. I have an FC-4000 tore apart right now. The LH steering knuckle is all jacked up, I bet its a week before we get the parts to put it back together.

I haven't ever worked on a PR before. We only have RD5200's, FC-4000's, 1 old 55FCTT, PE's 3000's and 4500's, RC-3000's, 1 40RCTT, and one WP2300. It seems the PE's are the biggest headaches.
