Batteries are something of an after-thought  for most forklift owners, but they represent a significant part of operational costs and also contribute to efficiency.
This week, we start a two-part special report on batteries, looking at some of the options currently available. And, of course, the choice is not limited to the power boxes themselves; there are many charging options and management systems - all promising to keep the equipment running efficiently and cost-effectively.
With battery-powered forklifts still making up a significant proportion of the global fleet, this report is not just interesting, it is valuable and its insights could generate some serious savings and productivity gains.

Furetto, Germany
"Based on the sales figurers of 2014 and the planed take over movement of KION , by the end of 2015 both Toyota and KION will jointly control around 49% of the total market turn over and by the end of 2016 this will be over 50% of market turnover . Is this to much for two companies to control and will we see more manufactures coming under these two companies umbrellas.".
