    The flip side, if you will excuse the choice of words, is excessive drinking has 1 good thing about driving a tow motor off the dock. If you survive, ya wont feel a thing. von.

    Not a good threat. I have nothing of value. I am judgement proof. If for some reason you did get a judgement against me, good luck on the collection side. As to the pic posted with the super charged fork lift motor. Nice. von.

    I expected that from a lot of people but not you Wong. Yes, it would be nice if all docks had heaters and doors, but it is not reality. Did it 38 years, over 20 of those on the dock, coffee froze on the table, snot frozen on my face. Toughen up.

    Never forgot the first time I delivered to the GM Plant just south of the Milwaukee WI airport. I was delivering 5131 baskets my company repaired. The fork lift driver came out of the building with a brand new Baker fork lift with a all weather containment cover. The Baker was fully heated & air conditioned. Working as a forklift driver for GM I don't believe he ever got wet or broke a sweat loading & unloading. von.
