    I thought that beam was a bit lacking when it came to heavy equipment mods, so I made one.

    It's a medium duty forklift, with a diesel engine and a lifting capacity of around 4.5 tons, plenty enough for lifting cars and other stuff.

    Jbeam was made fully from scratch, to avoid some of the issues with the DSC forklift and the reworked version. With the current simplex (single stage) mast, the lifting height is plenty enough for most purposes. The JBeam also doesn't stick-out over the mast model when it's lowered all the way.

    I've also made a set of forklift compatible pallet props, which is going to be released separately, for loading into vehicles and other fun things.

    Oooh, I can't wait to use this vehicle. Been a long time indeed since we had a working forklift. Does it have custom sounds or just stock BeamNG ones?

    Stock beamNG sounds.

    The engine assets are from the pigeon (models and sounds), with the performance being based on a 75hp Kubota utility engine.

    Maybe at some point. If anyone wants to use the jbeam as a basis for one I'm fine with that as well.

    And also crazy hyperspeed-type ones? That would honestly be hilarious to see like a 200mph forklift. XD

    That's not really possible in the context of beamNG, unless you make the forklift heavier than the sun.

    Cool mod but needs the additional sounds at lifting of the fork up and down process. Also would great have the EV variant.

    Game also lacks those sounds for stuff like the dump truck and the roll-back on the T-Series.

    If they had sounds, the forklift would have them as well :p

    Is that possible to make detachable props off the pallet?

    Are you going to add bails and a bail grab as an extra accessory?
