Here we have for sale our EAGER BEAVER EX MILITARY FORKLIFT - Sold as Non Runner/Spares Only (But with a little electrical work and 2 new batteries we are sure it would be up and running again!) There can't be too many of these still around so it will become more collectable to the Military enthusiast as time passes!

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'.

If you would like to view the Forklift or indeed have any questions please do give me a call - Dave on 01666 577104 any day after 6 pm.

NB: Winning bidder must pay £100 via Paypal within 24 hours of Auction ending with the balance outstanding to be paid in cash on collection.

You are bidding to buy and not to turn up view and haggle the price.

Many thanks and good luck bidding.
