Here's an interesting situation, due to a multitude of factors we needed to rig a machine, too heavy to be carried by the forklift, using this forklift. There was a 20 ton crane in the building but no good craning points on the machine to pick it up by crane. So, we picked the machine with BOTH crane and forklift. Cane on one side, forklift on another. Your humble servant operated the crane to "follow" the forklift, as the load was positioned.
