    ATCOEQUIP thanks on Hyster

    I knew what you where telling me was true i needed to empty and get trash out of tank but i couldnt for the life of me figure out how because i couldnt remove it,,.. so i went underside looked at drainplug had to drill hole in drain plug cause i could get it out someone had used a chisel on it ,, ez outs wouldnt do it so i just drilled thur plug and drain tank ... then it hit me the hole in tank where fuel sending unit sit was small 1 1/4 ,i borrowed a rigid sea snake to see tank inside and wooooooooooowwwwwww it was full of red and blue permatex , black paint chips and rust... so i got a shop vac and downsized it 4 times from 2 3/4 to 3/4 airline hose tie strapped it to a clothes hanger so i could bend and push it to the trash... shop vac reduced down to 3/4 is a bad ass if it was too large to go in hose it held it til i pulled it out and sea snake let me watch as it was sucked up... about the time i finished shop vac was smoking lol ,and done for...... but hyster is up running and so far so good .............thanks

    Well, your quite welcome.

    But, no need to thank me, I just persuaded you to accept what you knew all along, that is, thrash in a fuel tank doesn't go just continually comes back to haunt you.

    Next time you have to vacuum a confined space, try my "suck bucket" method with a shop vac. Keeps the shop vac a whole lot...cleaner? Read post 43 of this thread,
