Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
A month ago, we predicted that forklift prices in the US would rise in the wake of US tariffs on imports.
Crown Equipment Corporation was the first to move, announcing hikes which came into effect this month.
Well, Hyster-Yale has now gone the same way, announcing a "surcharge" for both the Yale and Hyster brands, starting from November 1.
And, no doubt, the rest of the pack can't be far behind. So, watch this space.

"The sump with new gasket was leaking, parts and products aren't easy to find here. There was a knot of hydraulic pipes where you need to put the strobo lamp, nut and distributor were stuck. Now the timing had 18 deg advance and I kept 5 deg, as indeed it's running on LPG. It doesn't seem to make much difference, maybe it will around 3000rpm (truck is still on blocks). The bolt on the plunger is only to fasten the lever, nothing to adjust there, I'll check if it's bottoming out.".

"I have bought two skyjacks for my facility, used, 10 years old, 1500 hours on them. Just replace the hydro hoses, tighten all the elec connections and they are set for years. That was 6 years ago. They get used about 12-14 hours a week here. One very small one for inside our office space, and one big one for out in the warehouse.".
