Discussion:
the End of Materials Handling as it is known today

The Materials Handling market is about to change. With only around six or seven of the world's manufactures serving. With in the next 10 years most warehouse will be completely different Companies like KION of China DAMATIC or TOYOTA of Japan VANDERLANDE will dominate the warehouse business with hole turnkey products. Pallet trucks, reach trucks VNA truck will all be replaced with automated equipment.

Counter balance forklift sales will also decline and be replaced with complete handling systems that will be able to move products around a facility with out the need of an operator. Out side the facility there will also be big changes Both Diesel and electric forklifts will be replaced with 100% zero emission products that will have much longer ranges then electric forklifts and will be able to handle loads up to 72,000kg while being 100% zero emission. Companies Like Hyster who have backed Hydrogen to the tune of up to $260 million investment will see this disappear as hydrogen forklifts wont be able to compete with the new technologies that will offer lower cost's ,no need for high pressure systems ,be less explosive and more cost effective than hydrogen.

hate to burst his bubble but i just happen to know that hyster will fair just fine.
NACCO has weathered rough times before and made it through it just fine before, and they will do it again. His so called predictions are just wishful thinking in his delusional mind.

and btw, we're still waiting for his miracle machine aren't we?

Only 2 weeks left before the Forklift Apocalypse begins! I don't know about you guys, but I'm sure glad I don't work for Hyster.

I'm pretty sure he's out negotiating to buy the remains of Hyster once he runs them out of business at the end of the year.

I'm sure that Yale / Hyster just cut production by 25% over fears of the pending release of Exalt's Super Truck and are using Covid to hide that fact.

All and I do mean ALL lift truck companies are hurting right now. Dave , Hyster / Yale posted their company results as a way to be truthful to the public. Get out of your parents basement, get some fresh air,OR go hang out with Joe Biden in his basement. You never know, he could use a good spin doctor right now and we would never hear from you again

Dave once again people on here have asked you specific questions about your wonder-truck and all you post is drivel about how your the only one in the world who can offer a 100% zero emission truck. Where is it Dave?? Is it hiding in Halifax?? Or has it been fitted with a Klingon cloaking device?? Please answer peoples questions and show your truck to the world Dave April 2019 came and went (you were going to show it then and announced you would on here) now your saying Q3 this year will it a tualy see the light of day?? I'm betting not

Ok Lets look at a laden container handling Reach Stacker in Europe as this is the largest market for these machines. A standard Reach Stacker not a eco drive one will use 18L of diesel per hour at a cost of 1.1 euro per litter, the service cost of one of these machines wouldbe around 8 Euro per hour, lets say the machine cost is 450,000 euro so the Total Cost Of Ownership based over a 10 year life working 2,000 hours per year is Euro 1,006,000. the rental price of our reach stacker would include fuel and service would be 79,000 euro per year or 790,00 for the full 10 year life. also our machine will produce 0kg of CO2 compared to 964,800kg of CO2 from the standared Reach Stacker.


we said way back in March this pandemic will have a massive effect on OEM's, we are now seeing this in their 1st half results, The full year results will be even more dredfull. What will happen before the mid point in 2021 will be a number of OEM's in the Larger truck market go out of business or be taken over. Hyster will anouce the Closing of Nijmegen and look for a partner on their smaller trucks.

Most of the other major OEM's have something to cover the sustainable market in big trucks, What hyster have is a hydrogen project that will end up seeing them being taken over because they won't be able to support the losses from this project

It's the lowest cost of ownership as it does not exist, never before have I heard so much crap, to be honest I am thinking after 10 years plus of spouting nonsense about this mythical truck that it's all a big wind up!
