Two recent trends are again evident this week. The first is the rise of refurbished equipment as we report on two manufacturers offering certified used equipment. That, of course, is partly a result of supply shortages and delays for new machines.
The second is the roll-out of new models, which is particularly surprising as we are just a week out from LogiMAT, traditionally a showcase of new equipment.
Even more surprising is that two of the new products reported this week are diesel-powered - at a time when we are hearing about the surge of interest in electric vehicles, and especially lithium-ion power. But, it seems, ICE power is not going away.
