Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Our thoughts go out to the people of Italy after last week's devastating earthquake in and around the town of Amatrice, which claimed almost 300 lives.
It doesn't appear that there is any materials handling manufacturing in the earthquake-affected area, but no doubt many in the industry have been personally affected, losing friends or relatives.
Disasters like this always bring out the best in the forklift community, and we're sure to see plenty of equipment donations and offers of support, not only from Italy's manufacturers, but also from the global brands. Over the years, we have seen the industry contribute generously to disaster recovery and reconstruction, and this tragedy will almost certainly elicit the same outpouring of goodwill.
While there is some uncertainty over the future of Amatrice, we all share Italy's sense of loss and stand ready to help however we can.

Also I have a very rare mint PEG forklift, it is the only one I have ever seen, what is this worth please".

"Looks like something that wouldn't last 2 hours at one of my customers. Breaking the forks off to use as a pallet jack just seems redundant to me. I have found things designed for multi purpose uses do everything poorly as opposed to something designed for one purpose. I think the real leap forward will be something to do with the building the machine works in or transport trailer, not the machine itself. ".
