The growth of the second-hand forklift market has been well documented and was reinforced by the inclusion at this year’s CeMAT of used equipment for the first time.
This week, we get some insight into the market - among other things - in an interview with Toyota’s Matthias Fischer. He points out that it was not just the economic downturn which boosted the market segment. There are many businesses which only put their materials handling equipment to light use, and it makes sense for them to buy second-hand gear.
And, of course, the other aspect is the manufacturers’ desire to capture more marketshare. Why should third-party traders cash in when the majors can retain relationships with customers who may, in future, require new equipment?

"Can some one tell me why I need to use travel tilt. The warehouse I work in has no slopes/inclines pot holes etc. So why to I need to use travel tilt when unladen. I can understand when I have a load on my forks why cant I just drive with my forks level. Big discussion at work about this.".
ZZJASEZZ, United Kingdom
"The dealership I was at tried to sell at 10 over and got a phone call from the sales manager at the OEM. Also back then customers would call other dealerships to see if you were selling at list. I am guessing that this does not happen so much anymore due to dealer consolidation covering multiple locations and states. Back then we were told that we could not refuse to quote someone out of our territory we just could not sell to them.".

"With the Sales and Marketing reorganization at NACCO, there are lots of resumes in the field. People moving on and others retiring even early. Job assignments have others frustrated, not in the right slots. The dealers are just ho hum ....wait a few months and things will change again.".
