A couple of months ago, we examined the big guns of the forklift arsenal in the first part of our two-part Heavy Lift feature. This week, we include the second instalment, looking at some global trends and developments.

End-users, no doubt, have big expectations from these machines - and the suppliers have a lot to live up to.
