John Collected allot of great T stuff.
Looks like a good one. Too bad it's Hershey week.
If I had, money/time/space I would go for the panel c-cab.
It tired me out just reading the sale bill! Bud.
I agree with you Kenneth, but this line makes me want to take a vacation to Mn.
"We apologize for the minimal photos and descriptions at this time, more info coming as we set-up the auction. No Buyer’s Premium or sales tax. Plenty of parking at neighboring parking lots."
He has what I would have had if I could have afforded it.
Coming up this weekend I will let you guys know how they sell.
Now I just need to win the power ball tonight!
I have to pick up a 1930 Franklin in Forest Lake, Minnesota in the next week or so .......
If you get a chance, please let us know if the Erickson Power Fork Lift SNFA87 is powered by a Model A Ford engine, Model B Ford engine (has a fuel pump on the right side of the engine and/or a block off plate), or some other engine.
Looking at the photos I believe it likely is a Model A Ford engine and transmission used to power the fork lift. But I cannot see the size or other details of the engine.
A lot of nice cars, trucks and tools.

I do like that little fork truck, I will check it out for you, maybe I will bring it home with me.
It amazes me how to w many Model T guys are out there. I've been involved with the hobby for almost twenty years. I've been an active member of MTFCA and MTFCI chapters here in Minnesota. I know hundreds of antique car enthusiasts right here in Minnesota. But, I still keep finding long time old car folks that I haven't met.
I never had the pleasure of meeting John Schoening. He clearly had a neat collection, but even living right in my back yard, we never managed to cross paths. I never even heard of him before I saw the auction sale bill a few weeks ago. I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow. I'd probably let that HCCT follow me home from the auction.
I'll avoid this one, as the timing would be terrible for me to bring anything else home right before I need to rearrange everything for winter storage.
I'm with Derek on this one. I have way too many barns that are at capacity already. I better stay home.
John would be at the Scott County Tractor group showing off a steam traction engine. At one time about 1966 he had a home in Orono and stored a Case engine there.
Here is some pictures
Thanks for posting to photos. Did you happen to notice if the engine and transmission in the fork lift were Model A Ford or something else?
And did anything follow you home?

Too if only me the engine looks like a model A because the water pump looks to have 4 sides and 4 bolts on the mount on the head?

Many of the vehicles were not running but could have been easily. also many of them did not have titles. I did not bring any home.
Here are a couple more of the lift I believe it was model A
Engine was Model A for sure, no fuel pump opening, 4 bolt water pump, zenith carburetor. It has a 1930 stock radiator and shell. The hydraulic pump is driven by an additional belt on the front of the engine.
Steering is done by a single rear wheel, and controlled using a large lever on the left. There are two(!) extra handles welded on, they must be needed to get full steering without bending over too far.
It has a Model A (car) clutch and transmission. The clutch is controlled by a pedal/plate on the floor. It would be easy to stand on the pedal, thus keeping the machine in neutral while raising or lowering the forks. The transmission is connected to the drive shaft by a vertical chain drive. The drive axle looked to be re-purposed truck, with wide brake drums. The make is unknown to me. Auctioneer said it had been running, turned over but they were unable to start it.
Thank you for posting prices and pics Matt! It's appreciated!
Greg F and I were texting the other night and he mentioned you. :-) He's a good guy. Funny man. :-)
Rumely G? for 20. Yep.
The Huber for 6. Love the model of that tractor. FU. Hehehe! ;-)
The $900 Erickson did have a set of forks! Is that thing (conglomeration) a stand-up type like a Namco or an ECXX Clark fork lift?
Interesting piece. That "doofy" thing would've fit in good here at my place.
Hap, can you tell from the pics IF there's a fuel pump spot on that block?
If I didn't dislike driving for two hours and standing around at an auction all day, I woulda been there. :-)
What did the D2 Caterpillar go for?
I did not watch the crawlers sell, sorry.
If this is the TT stake bed for $5600, someone got a really nice truck !!
Yes it is and the dump truck is right next to it. I thought all of the TT's and AA's were reasonable but the rest of the T's were on the high side.
Thank you so much for the additional details.
As Jay and others pointed out it is Model A style engine.
Below is a 1928-1931 Model A Ford engine from https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1931_Ford_Model_A_roadster_engine.JPG Note the BLACK oil return pipe / tube that terminates near the front lower part of the block. The Model A engines have that the Model B engines do not.
Below is the fork lift engine:
Below is an illustration from e-bay of a Model B engine note the fuel pump would not fit if there was an oil return pipe/tube like the Model A engine has.
And as several pointed out the Model A has a 4 bolt water pump and the Model B has a 3 bolt water pump.
Note the older I get the more a fork lift etc. looks better and better.
