Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
Our Discussion Forum is a popular feature of the Forkliftaction.com offering. Each week, scores of posts are added on a wide range of topics. We have seen breaking industry news, safety advice, technical questions and the odd humorous tale. It is timely, however, to remind members that the Forum is a service meant for all readers. It is not a platform for blatant self-promotion, nor a vehicle to knock competitors. We have been fortunate that most users have respected others to date, but from time to time, someone oversteps the mark and, while our moderators usually spot violations and remove them, we remind all readers that they can report objectionable posts with a couple of key strokes. Let’s keep it lively- and keep it fair.
