Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
A couple of weeks ago, we noted a surge of new models in various markets. Well, that trend continues, and today, we report on a few more debuts.
In the telehandler market, there are new offerings from Bobcat. Meanwhile, Manitou has unveiled several new products at the Agritechnica trade show in Hannover. We also report on a new tyre range from JLG and Continental, while TVH has introduced a safety light solution.
On another topic, we would like to apologise to anyone who was unable to access our website last week. Unfortunately, as an online operation, we are dependent on Internet connectivity to serve the market. Last week, our service provider had some technical issues which knocked out our connections - along with those of other customers. Thankfully, we were back up and running after a short delay. But we're sorry if the outage affected you in any way.

"an attachment is any component/device not integrated into the design of the lift from the manufacturer. now sideshifters used to be considered an attachment because they had to be installed on the carriage as a separate component and even to this day there are still 3rd party sideshifters that are considered attachments.".
