What does it have for an engine?

I can't imagine with those tires you'll be going off the pavement? Been using a Hyster with solid tires (about double in size of those though) and it doesn't take much to get it stuck on dirt.

I bought a 5000lb Yale forklift last week, unknown vintage, guessing 60s. It has a 6 cylinder flathead, I think a Continental.

Was gasoline, but got converted to propane at some point. 6 volt, but was switched over to 12v.

I need to fix a few things, pretty much similar issues you have as well.

Has a big 3 stage cylinder, which is leaking a bit. I'm just going to run it and hopefully it doesn't get too bad. The hydraulic shop quoted me about what I paid for the forklift to rebuild it, so it'd be a DIY job for sure.
