In many media, the line between editorial and advertising is fast disappearing.
Here at Forkliftaction.com, we differentiate between editorial and advertising so that our readers know what is “independent” and what content has been paid.
That’s not to say that paid content has less value - it’s just a clear and plain statement that the item was not necessarily selected because of its news value, but rather because of the motivation of its originator. It also does not mean that paid announcements are less relevant or, heaven forbid, less true than our “news” items. Forkliftaction.com News would not knowingly publish anything it believed to be untrue or misleading - besides which, our active  Discussion Forums are quick to shake out misleading claims.
So, regardless of its source, we hope you enjoy everything you read in this newsletter.

"Can someone send me some information on what are the functions of all the buttons on the dash panel on Linde RX50-16. None are labeled. Can the speed be adjusted? This is a 24 volt unit and seems very slow.".
mrfixit, United States
"We have a hyster model h2.50xm/6 with a Mazda fe 2.0 lit LPG engine in it. We are on a farm in the middle of nowhere in Western Australia and it is always a pain getting gas for it and recently it has become a very temperamental to start. The forklift is in good condition and I was wondering if anybody knew if we could swap the engine to a new diesel and if so which engine would fit in?".
rich_m, Australia
"The operator sprayed this lift down with a water hose. Now the engine will not start & the dash will not power up. i checked voltage at the key switch, i have voltage to engage the starter and power the ignition wire. i tested all the fuses all test good. i changed out the fuse box with a known good one. any thoughts on what to test next? thanks.jim".
