As if the impact of US tariffs and the Brexit uncertainty were not enough, the business world now has to worry about the crisis in Turkey.
All eyes are now on that country, and its reaction to the crash of its currency, the lira.
Turkey is not a major player in the materials handling market, nor is it a significant importer of equipment, but in the interconnected global trade eco-system, the slightest change can affect the overall balance.
So, pundits are watching closely.

"So my Pallet Jack is throwing up an Error Code E200. Sometimes it works OK one minute and then the next, if you try to move, it throws up that E200 error and nothing happens.".

"My Guess is that it is a timing issue. Loosen the nut that holds the distributor in place the turn the distributor in either direction to see if the engine runs smoother. If it does, tighten the nut and try climbing the ramp again.".
"Backup alarms are only a requirement on construction sites. You can remove the backup alarm on a forklift if it is not in a construction zone. If the truck has a backup alarm installed and it does not work that is a violation. Backup alarms a considered an option on forklifts in non construction applications. Your state may have rules that require a backup alarm on all forklifts, you would have to contact your local officials.".
