Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
You're in good company this week, with our membership tally recently passing 72,000!
Our subscriptions are growing fast - as we approach our 20th year. Few in the industry realise that this newsletter began in 1999 with just 50 readers.
Since then, as we hear when we attend industry gatherings, Forkliftaction News has become compulsory reading for anyone who makes, sells, buys or operates materials handling equipment.
We're confident that there will shortly be even more reason to visit our website when we unveil a fresher, more interactive format designed to make it easier to find what you want and see more of the content behind Forkliftaction Media.
The update will make Forkliftaction more user-friendly and our content more accessible, no matter what device you're using.
Please stay tuned - the best is yet to come.

"The new linde IC model might give Toyota a run for their money especially in europe. The new truck seems to run on the same platform for Ic and Electric trucks, so basically the IC and electric truck will run on the same chassis ".

"I'm curious to see what everybody uses in their warehouse/Distribution center. For our Reach trucks our entire fleet consists of Raymond's. Our entire counterbalance fleet are Toyota. We also have pallet riders that are Clarks.".

"OSHA has said in the past operator's manuals should always be available to any operator when needed. The federal law below applies because operator's manuals are always shipped from the manufacturer with the manual in the designated pouch, carrier or pocket usually decaled or labeled as such on the truck. You can't eliminate any parts (operator's manual) off the truck.".
