Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
Our website reached a new record in December, clocking up almost 20 million hits and close to 13 million page views - and that included the holiday period when people were presumably more focused on family and celebration than on forklifts.
This newsletter has about 57,000 subscribers. We have seen a slight shift in regional demographics, with the biggest growth in Asia and the Middle East - areas which have also received more coverage in the last year.
Our reader break-down by occupation remains largely unchanged, although through last year we did see an increase in fleet managers and end-users, while associated industry readership (including financial services, trainers, associations and regulators) has also spiked.
We interpret the growth to mean that we’re doing something right. Of course, we’re always striving to do better, and if you have any suggestions, please let us know.

"Every combi i've worked on, the prox switches have indicator lights on them round the circumfrence of the back end where the harness plugs into them. They look like orange dots, sometimes you have to look closely at them and maybe even use a mirror to get close to them to see it, but if there is alot of light, the ones that are enclosed in a dark area like underneath the cabin or inside the wheel well mechanism at the front wheel you can usually see.".
