Technical specifications, photos and description:
As Per Plate on Vehicle - Designation - Tractor Wheeled Forklift 4000LBS Rough Terrain Light Eager Beaver Mk II (Age Unknown).
It is based around the Bedford RL. as it uses Bedford RL axles (2x Front axles gives selectable 2 or 4 wheel steering) - 4 Wheel Drive.
It has the Perkins 4236 Diesel Engine which is the 4 cylinder model. It uses the Thornycroft Nubian Transfer Gearbox. with full hydraulic steering which can be changed from 2 wheel on the roads to 4 wheel steer off road. It is capable of 40 mph on the road. having done this myself towing two Torpedo Trailers behind! Not for the faint hearted!!
We bought it in 1994 to help assist with the heavy lifting during a Steam Engine Locomotive restoration project. It was an absolute godsend and never faltered or failed in any lifting capacity. It was in use weekly on all sorts of duties until it was finally parked up in 2007. We did try to start it about a year ago with no success. The batteries were useless and it had an ignition/electrical fault that we could not resolve. So we are confident that somebody with knowledge in this area could soon get it running again and even maybe restore it to its former glory. Failing that it could be broken for Spares/Repairs as we know the Engine alone is quite sought after. NB It is being sold as a NON RUNNER and the successful winning bidder will have to have an appropriate vehicle to remove it from site. A Recovery Vehicle of some sort or other.
Approx Dimensions - Height 6' 6'' - Length 14' and Width 6'.
