Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
A couple of weeks ago, we noted the twists and turns in the Terex/Konecranes merger, after reports that the deal was still on track.

"Is there any truth in Briggs buying out Carrylift ?".
keth_3, United Kingdom
"I have a question I remember reading somewhere about mounting and dismounting forklifts only on the left side and not from the right side due to the control levers being located on that side and the potential to engage the controls on accident with loose clothing bumping into etc. ? has any one seen an article detailing this and if so where can I find it".
