    Hi,

    I think you can translate it as lift-truck. I think this is the first time I've heard diablo to refer to this machine.

    Besides we do not say cucharón, but palas.

    That's how it would sound in Spain:

    El operador cogió los mandos de la carretilla elevadora y en ese momento accionó accidentalmente la palanca de las palas

    and this is how it could sound in English:

    The operator took the controls of the lift-truck and at that moment he drove the lever of the forks.


    However I am not completely sure about the machine we're talking about, could you paste any link to a picture?


    Bye.

    I think Lift truck sounds good, but enclosed you can find the picture of this equipment.
    Here in Mexico is very usual to call it "diablo o diablito de carga".
    But your support is highly appreciated.

    Hola
    En este link you will be able to see what we call a "diablito" in Mexico. It´s a very local way to call it. I wonder what they call it in other Spanish speaking countries.
    Perdón que no pueda ayudarte con lo que buscas giobaco, pero creo que el link les podrá dar a los demás una idea del misterioso instrumento que en México llamamos "diablito".
    saludos

    Giobaco, the heavy equipment in the photo, we call it a "bobcat."

    Lapachis8, this is called a set of "handtrucks" or "dolly" or maybe in some places, a "lift truck."

    What you see in the picture is a "bob cat" moving a dolly(?) and it is encircled in red.

    But thanks!!

    Si el equipo del que estás hablando es el de tu foto, entonces NO es un dolly.


    Edit: Maybe it is..I am so confused now.

    huh, i didn't see the little dolly circled in red being carried by the bobcat in the picture... but, to make the long story short, bobcat is montacargas and dolly is diablito... i'm sure everybody already said it and i might be repeating myself...
    My goodness! that's not even a dolly!!! what is it? on the bobcat, what is that? anyways, i guess you know what we're talking about now...

    You're welcome.

    Keep in mind also that a "montacargas" used in a warehouse is a "forklift."
