Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
One of the attractions of online business is that it opens up a global market and allows for instant, real-time interaction.
But that 'always-on' characteristic also has downsides, especially when the technology fails.
To avoid the risk of unintended interruption as our audience continues to grow and places additional demands on our infrastructure, we will be going off air briefly for maintenance.
Our server will be offline on Monday, February 20 at UTC 1.0 am. We anticipate that the outage could last up to two hours and apologise in advance for any inconvenience.
But we hope that this short interruption will ensure smooth sailing for some time to come.

In The Discussion Forums
"Keeping people safe, reducing accidents, reducing damage, reducing downtime, reducing accidents obviously will save any company money. You will not get any argument from management, unions or employees about this. However, additional investments in safety must be justified like any investment that a company makes be it production machinery, facility improvements, material handling equipment, office equipment, etc.".
TerryW, United States
"Anyone ever had to replace a steer motor on a Crown FC4500? Need to know any shot cuts if there is any. The steer motor is vertical on a bracket and pump is mounted to motor under the bracket. I took battery out and got some access but not much.".
