VANDERBURGH COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) – A Vanderburgh County event is showing kids what it’s like behind the wheel of a forklift and other vehicles.

MH Equipment hosted ‘Tons of Trucks’ as part of their National Forklift Safety Day celebrations.

They allowed children to sit in and see forklifts and other big trucks up close.

This is the first time the company’s Evansville office held the ‘Tons of Trucks’ event.

Kids, and even some adults, learned about operating them safely and what these machines carry.

“I think they get to learn about possibly the industrial world. You have a 55,000-pound truck behind us that one of the sheriffs was asking, ‘Well, what does that thing lift?'”

MH Equipment also cut the ribbon on their branch office, which opened last year.
