Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Hot on the heels of the ProMAT show, American materials handling leaders are now headed to Salt Lake City, Utah for the 62nd Annual MHEDA Convention.
Where the Chicago event was predominantly a trade show, MHEDA's gathering has a very strong educational and social focus. In fact, the exhibition ends a day before the convention to facilitate participation in the seminars and social activities.
The event runs from April 29 to May 3 and Forkliftaction will be in the thick of it, at Booth 409. Yvette O'Connor will be catching up with old friends and is looking forward to meeting new ones. Please drop in and say 'hi'.

Finance Options Australasia News
When you need to upgrade your equipment but lack the CapEx budget, there are many finance options available.

You can have full access to the equipment you need without the upfront cost either on an Operating Lease (giving you ultimate flexibility at the end of the contract) or on a Secured Loan (giving you full ownership of the equipment and potential depreciation benefits).

In choosing a financier, besides the interest rate, consider the speed and ease of arranging finance. Classic Funding Group, for example, offers a “No financials” equipment finance option with electronic document signing, making the process quick and simple, so you can get on with doing what you do best, without the time consuming paperwork.

Get in touch with Classic Funding Group on 1300780895 for more information. [more]

"Have been monitoring this case to see what the outcome might be. Aftermarket programmers are available for UTVs and ATVs some marine equipment ect. They are illegal to install according to the EPA but seem to not be monitored at this moment. Also have to question the legality of all the black smoke mods for diesel trucks.".
