Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Industry news tends to come in waves, and we're now in the financial reporting season, so we can expect a steady flow of company results in the next few editions.
What is surprising is the array of new product announcements this week. Generally, we see a rush of new products for the major trade shows, but clearly the events calendar is becoming too complicated and manufacturers can't keep pace or decide when and where to unveil new offerings.
For buyers, the scattered approach is a blessing because it allows them to consider each new product in isolation. The downside is that it's harder to compare isolated products than those launched side by side at a big show. And then there's also the nagging doubt about whether something better, cheaper, more efficient or safer is looming on the horizon.
One thing's for sure: there's never a dull moment.

"Our biz is not construction but we want give our customers a hand . Any one who already knew this solution ,please give us an advise and appriciated . They claimed "this expanding form can lift 6,000 pound of concrete per square foot" , using this foam is cheaper but I still worry how long we have to process it again ? ".

"I personally would choose crown without hesitation. They cant be beat for quality and if there's any chance you will do your own maintenance or choose someone other than the brand specific dealer to do your service, you will find crown to be much much more user friendly. No special software required every adjustment and calibration can be done from the display. Linde requires laptop and software for most adjustments or calibrations and this software is dealer only.".
