    Hello everyone! I recently got in trouble for browsing the local classified sections. It was actually facebook marketplace, but essentially the same difference. I brought home an old Hyster Forklift. The ultimate plan is to make this unit operate safely and reliably for a home storage solution. This Hyster 30 forklift is an older unit that is in need of some serious maintenance. I hope to document the journey to help others who may be interested in using a forklift for home storage and or just working on an old Hyster forklift. Everyone needs a forklift right?? Please share any information you have available for this model. This is my first major forklift repair and any pertinent information or manual references would be handy. If this is of interest to you please follow along at my YouTube Channel. If you subscribe and select the alert button you will be notified whenever a new video is posted. Thank you!

    ***If you make it to the end of the video help me decide on a nickname for this project. I have two options. Please post your vote in the comments section.***

    Well I found someone who has some manuals for this beast. I think they might be correct, but the transmission linkage in the manual looks a little different than the one on mine. I have to investigate further. If anyone needs a manual for a Hyster Challenger H30 - 60 I can share it. It contains part numbers and reference diagrams.
