Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
Some weeks, the news is dominated by product launches. Sometimes, it's financial results.
This time, we seem to have a plethora of orders and fleet expansions. And that's interesting for two reasons. Firstly, it shows that there's activity in the markets. This is a good indicator of the financial health of the economy, with players in various industries and regions experiencing sufficient growth in their markets to justify new and ongoing investment.
But, for end-users, the value in these reports is seeing what other organisations are buying. Many use this information to guide their own equipment planning and like to see how machines are being deployed and how businesses are benefiting from their investments.
So, these reports are useful both to suppliers and to buyers - and we hope you find them interesting and beneficial.

"You can contact our spare parts dept via our company website, and also you can contact our dealer in US. The two places you said are right. And we will have a dealer in NJ, which will be close to you.".

"So, to summarise, you are saying that straightening the front end before lowering the load is less about maintaining stability and more to ensure clearance from the racking system? this was my thought also.".
TonytheTrainer, United Kingdom
"Without knowing the detail of what has been agreed, (at this point the only people who know sit on the boards of both companies), capabilities and the direction ahead, the price may be right and future secure. Let it play out and stop random speculation.".
