Find constant speed using mass and power [SOLVED]

Homework Statement


A 613.0 kg mass is placed on a forklift that can generate 950 W of power. What is the constant speed of the forklift while lifting this load?


Homework Equations


P = W/▲t
W=Fapp*▲d
Fg=mg


The Attempt at a Solution


I am not sure where to go from here, I cant rearrange P = W/▲t to solve for t without having work. I can't find W=Fapp*▲d without d or by rearranging P. I can't find d with the variables given or by rearranging W. Any help is appreciated!

P=(Fapp*▲d)/▲t
P=((mg)*▲d/▲t)

note v=▲d/▲t
insert values and isolate for v

Thanks! Can't believe I overlooked that. Question is solved
