Its features vary between games. == Description == === Design === The Forklift is a small, light electric-powered vehicle, to the point where it cannot sustain high velocity hits without being knocked over. Control can be a problem, due to its rear-wheel steering, short wheelbase and high center of gravity. While the lift is functional in the GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories rendition, there is no apparent way to raise or lower the lift in GTA IV; the lifts are also incapable of lifting cars as they will simply slide off the lift. Beginning the HD Universe, the GTA IV rendition of the Forklift houses a tank of what seems to be propane; shooting it will either cause it to leak ignited gas (illustrated with a visible jet of blue flame), or to itself ignite and eventually explode, taking the entire vehicle with it. Safety illustrations are printed on the vehicle, accompanied by the caption "YOU WILL DIE". GTA IV's Forklift is also available with any one of two minor variations of yellow body color. The Forklift returns in GTA V, remaining highly unaltered in design and performance. However, the lift is now operable like in San Andreas and Vice City Stories.

File:Forklift-GTAVCS-front.jpg|GTA Vice City Stories ([[:File:Forklift-GTAVCS-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]). File:Forklift-GTAIV-front.jpg|GTA IV. This rendition comes with any one of two shades of yellow for the body and a blue or red tank in the rear. File:Forklift-GTAV-front.jpg|GTA V ([[:File:Forklift-GTAV-rear.jpg|Rear quarter view]]). === Performance === The Forklift's performance is, predictably, very poor. With low power, front wheel drive and rear steering, the Forklift moves at a snail's pace and possesses overly sensitive turning, to the point that sudden turns will pitch it violently to one side and frequently tip it over. In both GTA San Andreas and GTA IV, the Forklift is as slow as its fellow lower powered vehicles, the [[Mower]] and the [[Sweeper]]. In GTA Vice City Stories, the forward speed of the Forklift is slower than even the player character's running speed; its reverse is actually faster than its forward motion. While being the slowest vehicle in GTA IV, that game's Forklift has the fastest acceleration of any vehicle in GTA IV (3.4 seconds to top speed), presumably to compensate for its negligible top speed of 29 mph (just over half that of the next slowest vehicle, the [[Ripley]]). == Prominent appearances == The Forklift is used during the [[Robbing Uncle Sam]] mission in GTA San Andreas, with [[Carl Johnson]] loading boxes of firearms into a [[Mule|truck]] at a National Guard armory in [[Los Santos in GTA III Era|Los Santos]]; it also plays a small role in the mission [[Breaking the Bank at Caligula's]], when Carl Johnson must open the garage for [[Zero]] and the team during the bank heist with a Forklift. In the mission [[Gray Imports]], gangsters in Forklifts loaded with explosives will attack Carl as he exits the warehouse. In the GTA Vice City Stories mission [[Boomshine Blowout]], [[Victor Vance]] uses the Forklift to load [[Phil Cassidy|Phil Cassidy's]] [[boomshine]] onto the latter's [[Walton]] before a factory blows up. == Trivia== * In GTA IV, the default radio station in the Forklift is [[Liberty Rock Radio 97.8]]. * There is one inside the [[Sprunk]] warehouse (the gunfight setting of [[Escuela of the Streets]]) at [[Bohan]], though it can't be taken outside as the door is too small. * The Forklift in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] is a front weel drive * There is a special yellow-colored Forklift used in the mission [[Breaking the Bank at Caligula's]] in [[Grand Theft Auto San Andreas]]. * In perfect condition this car can be sold in the [[S&M Auto Sales]] for $2,500 * In GTA San Andreas for the PS2, the [[Ocean Docks]] spawning point has a glitch where almost at most times, the Forklift is spawned almost underground, leaving only the top of it's roll cage being visible. ==Locations== ;GTA San Andreas *Spawns in [[Ocean Docks]], [[Los Santos in GTA III Era|Los Santos]] *By the docks in [[Easter Basin]], [[San Fierro]] *[[Easter Bay Chemicals]], [[Flint County]]. *By the factory in [[Angel Pine]], [[Whetstone]] *[[Las Venturas Airport]] in [[Las Venturas]] ;GTA Vice City Stories *By a factory west of the Vice City Port Authority building in [[Viceport]] ;GTA IV *[[Happiness Island]], just off the boat wharf adjacent to [[Algonquin]]. *[[Acter Industrial Park]] in [[Alderney]], parked on the streets and around many buildings. *Many Forklifts can be found in [[Port Tudor]], [[Alderney]]. *In [[Tudor]], [[Alderney]] *Can be found parked on the street in [[East Hook]] in [[Broker]] *Sometimes on the small dead end near 8-Ball in [[Beechwood City]], Broker. {{Navboxes |title= Navigation |list1= {{vehicles|state=collapsed}} {{gtasa vehicles|state=collapsed}} {{gtavcs vehicles|state=collapsed}} {{gtaiv vehicles|state=collapsed}} {{gtav vehicles|state=collapsed}} }} [[Category:Vehicles]] [[Category:Vehicles in GTA San Andreas]] [[Category:Vehicles in GTA Vice City Stories]] [[Category:Vehicles in GTA IV]] [[Category:Vehicles in GTA V]] [[Category:Industrial Vehicles]]
