Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
No-one really expects bureaucrats to solve financial problems, but the latest announcement from World Bank president Jim Yong Kim is encouraging.
Speaking last week ahead of the World Bank/IMF Spring Meetings in Washington, Kim announced a series of measures aimed at strengthening the World Bank Group to better meet the evolving needs of clients. One of the highlights was a USD100 billion increase in the banks lending capacity for middle-income countries over the next decade. That followed a USD52 billion top-up in funds for the poorest nations last December.
Now, even if hand-outs arent the answer, theres no doubt that more money circulating through developing economies will stimulate not only their own efforts, but also the economies of their trading partners. And more trade and development means more stuff to move around  and hence, more demand for materials handling. So the lending boost should have a direct impact on the forklift community as well as the struggling economies it aims to assist.

"i have a intermittent fault with this truck the fault will occur anytime. when fault occurs the truck will stop dead with no forward or reverse movement and thee three flashes of light. turn the truck off and back on and just drives ok and it will be fine.the fault is so intermittent.checked what are the flash codes or what to look for".

"I think the Linde H45D, 352 series diesel truck is the longest lasting, bullet proof truck with the lowest maintenance. We have customers that have put up to 40,000 hours on these trucks with rebuilding the engine or touching the hydrostatic drive. The radiators were solid aluminum and the steer axles were massive. You can drive one of these trucks that may have 20,000 hours on it and you would swear it only had 2000 hours.".
