Great edge 2012-06-03 21:30

Hello Craig, i see we are back to NYC, you really like that place. Ha ha. This is a fine picture of people in a nonchalant presence. I am really curious what the blue and orange large gadgets are that are lying by the one fellow's feet. puzzle too. Have a good week. Regards, Roger I

Hey Roger
I saw your Vegas shot today...I like that one too.

as for the 2 colored items in this scene, its simple...they are basically a manual, but much smaller Forklift. They are used in such a way that the 2 elongated arms slide right into the opening of wooden Crates or Pallets. Pallets that usually hold boxes of cargo. Once the arms are locked into the pallet, you pump up the small forklift a few inches off the ground then you can pull it around as there are wheels on it.
I used to work in a factory, right out of highschool - that time when you don't know what to do with you life! Worked in manual labour for a few years until i grew up and got a career, not just a job. So i'm very familiar with those manual lifts.

thanks again
see you around
