Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Unlike the Chinese, the Western calendar doesn’t assign characteristics to the year. So, as we approach 2015, we have little to go on but public sentiment. There’s no doubt that there’s more positive belief than there has been for some time. It seems like only yesterday that pundits were poised to write off much of Europe as a basket case and dismiss the US as another victim.
But we ended 2014 in better shape than we began it, and all we can hope for is that this holds true for 2015.
So, as we start another year, the team wishes everyone in the industry all the best. Let’s hope that any lifting we face is light and that our equipment continues making our lives easier.
Happy New Year.

"I've reached my limit, and need some help. We've had another pedestrian hit by a forklift attributed to impaired vision, i.e. the mast blocking the driver's view. Thankfully the person will be fine, but it could have been a fatality. My question for you is: Who is making a forklift or retro-fit type mast that is below the line of sight of a seated operator? I'll buy 100 of them if I can find them!".

"Concerning the hydraulics - technically everything is possible, the issue is, how safe it is. I wonder, what will be the reaction of your domestic Certification Office. Please advice the exact description (model, type, serial number) of the truck. ".

"We have been getting these errors for a while now. Sometimes we can go weeks before seeing them and then like right now we are kicking if we can even get the lift to move 2 ft.".
