Why in God's name would a forklift, NYPD or not, need a fully populated Whelen Liberty? Tax dollars at work, ladies and gentlemen.

What the heck is the NYPD's PMU (written on the side of the forklift)? The closest thing I have found on Google was Performance Monitoring Unit, but not a description.

Are we sure it's a Red/White bar, and not a fully populated amber bar...? But knowing NYPD, its probably red/blue or red/white... LoL

Maybe HPD sold it to the NYPD. They use the fed sig lightbars, I have never seen a Whalen bar on a NYPD vehicle before.

ok, first of all, its red/white !!! it belongs to the mounted unit, im more than sure its to lift a horse trailer off a hitch and move it on to another vehicle,or something to that effect, and i also believe there is a pa300 mounted in there........ and now for the ooooh whelen lol , the nypd uses more whelen than you think !!!

Oh crap, please tell me that bar suffered a roll-over collision and was pulled out of the trash and put on the forklift by some bored motor pool jock.


If not, more wasteful government spending at work...

Easy killer... I was merely asking if we "knew" that this was a Red/White bar since the pics don't show the bar lit up... My apologies for asking a question... I shall remember to never do it again... LoL

BULL $HIT ! :lol:


Maybe it has the lightbar because it fell off of a pallet it was moving and cracked an endcap. Doesn't NYPD throw away everything if just one thing breaks? :roll:

MY guess is that it went to fleet services to lettered and upfitted. The mechanic then realized they had the bar laying around and they got a kick out of slapping it on a forklift. 911 is correct, the PMU designation means it is assigned to the mounted unit.

First, that amber beacon was probably factory installed IMHO. Second, I'm deeply saddened that this was not repainted in typical NYPD colors; 911 you know what I mean, Hell, even the Prius's (Priui?) that were originally white on blue were repainted to blue on white.


Third? That would look so much better with a mini jetstream like the rest of the Cushman's out there!

most blue/black nypd cars are being retired rather than being painted........ its cheaper to buy white for everyone,and also its provides omni-presence......the nypd does do weird things with lights,but if you noticed whelen has been showing up alot lately in the fleet......

You mean you don't get into chases with your forklift every other shift? Good god man you must work in the sticks. Get a real job. :lol:

Well, if this was taken on new years eve in time square, then one may be lead to think it may be used to transport metal bariers.


and as for the lightbar, hell, why not. I know if i had a forklift with a LAPD sticker on it I would put a fully populated lightbar on it. :D

one may be lead to think that, but it was confirmed that it belongs to the mounted division... like i said it was confirmed as such to even say that one forklight also has a pa300 in it !

Maybe they need to start putting Federal Q-2B's and some auxiliary lighting on those forklifts? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
