Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
There was plenty of optimism among materials handling suppliers at the recent Brisbane Truck Show. As Australasian readers will see in our special coverage, most importers commented on the strong interest in their products as sales generally continue to be buoyed by the construction boom in some regions.
Not only was plenty of display stock sold on the spot, but there were also firm orders placed and good contacts made for follow-up discussions as the expanding infrastructure workload creates increasing demand for equipment.

"That is what is so great about the internet and these forums. There is a plethora of knowledge out there, it is just finding the people who have it. I would imagine there are a lot of very sharp forklift mechanics on here and it is nice they share their knowledge with those of us who are more a novice than a professional :-)".
Rockrancher, United States
"Was wondering if anyone had any info on working for Crown? What are the trucks like? Is there much electronics on them? What is the diagnostic software like? Do you get many courses at Basingstoke?".
alain_prost, United Kingdom
"Would not be surprised if NACCO is looking to sell. The family owners of the company are not getting any younger. HYG does sell a Chinese Mfg truck called Utilev for basic applications. Dealers in the US are larger with smaller dealers being merged or retired. Hyster/Yale dealers have eliminated Hys or Yale from their company name.".
