Optimism continues with the second-largest forklift maker, KION, reporting good results.
KION's positive financial report comes on the back of similar results last week from third-placed Jungheinrich.
Looking ahead, KION expects a slower rate of global market growth this year, with stronger orders in Europe and North America, but slow-downs in Russia and Brazil. The group believes that China will stabilise over the course of the year, although conditions will remain challenging.
So, overall, things are looking up.

"I bought an old Yale forklift It is somewhere between a 3000-5000 lb truck. It has a straight 4 flathead cont. I believe it is a f162 or f163. I need the seals to rebuild the main lift cylinder but I an unable to find a model or serial number to get parts for this machine.".

I find with counter balance looking is the most common as already stated. reach is the same, and pedestrian stacker I find looking in the direction of travel is a common fault. This is more common than any other.".
