Sounds like a good option right now.

What kind of "fork lift" did you have. If it was the warehouse type unit I could see why you'd have a problem.

Yes.
It was fine until I got to a part of the concrete where it just crumbled.
Currently looking at alternatives, telehandler, not sure at the moment
