This is  the second forklift I have made, the first one could hardly lift anything, this one can lift a lot more, and has steering, so I hope you like it!

that does not look like a fork lift (more like a dork lift)

You've got the fork-lift about right there, esp. the rear-wheel steering. No they aren't pretty.
