Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
Our Jewish readers are this week celebrating Hanukkah, the eight-day Festival of Lights.
Because of its timing, often in mid- to late-December, the festival could be confused with Christmas, an association heightened by the practise of giving gifts over this festival. However, Hanukka predates Christmas by a long shot, and it marks the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt against the Seleucid Empire.
In keeping with our dedication to celebrating all culturally significant dates, we wish all our readers who mark the festival Chag Sameach.

"KION has recently taken on the Chinese brand Baoli. KION plans to back this with the same product support, parts and sales quality that they do with Linde. I think it will probably end a lot of the headaches that consumers faced in the past with Chinese trucks. Was at the dealer meeting and the truck looked good so we'll see shortly.".
WeightLifter, United States
"In the EU, manufacturers of agricultural vehicles will have to provide RMI, Repair and Maintenance Information, starting in 2018. They also have to provide information to diagnostic tool manufacturers to make it possible to create universal diagnostic tools. (just like the automotive industry) But what I can't find: will this also count for the forklift industry?".
frits_f, Netherlands
"Interested in any forklift that has a remote starter -- similar to those available with newer model cars. Particularly want to know whether any safety regulations - any country - are in place to preclude starting a forklift while/when the operator is not aboard the truck sitting in its seat.".
