You may be able to use a couple of tractor batteries to replace the offending battery. My buddy did that with his, worked well, just wouldnt stay charged as long as the original.

You got the forklift at a fire sale price for sure. You could probably spend a few bucks to build some kind of shed to store it in, and still be way ahead of the game.

I'm a fan of elec lifts. I've worked on and used both electric and propane. I prefer the electric, quieter, less stuff leaking on the floor when things go bad, etc. what is the input voltage on the charger? Keep your eye open for a spare battery/lift to use for parts. A spare battery would be high on my list for sure. One goes dead you just swap out batteries and keep on trucking. Of course then you have to have a crane/hoist to swap the batteries with....but hey its a good excuse to buy more stuff

Batteries are expensive and easy to trash. Just remember they are recyclable, somewhere in the neighborhood of $14 each for a car battery. According to my forklift guy the battery packs for those are more than the value of the machine, which is why savvy guys like us tend to convert them to something else.
