Is More Paper Work the Key to Forklift Safety?

Posted on

Then someone walks in and asks for a report on usage when the business was operating at its peak in, let’s say, October 1998. You go digging. Through tons. And tons. Of paper.

You’ve got enough paper in your life. Paper you send to suppliers. Paper you send to customers. Paper suppliers and customers send you. Monitoring your forklift usage and efficiency shouldn’t require additional stacks of paper. A Vehicle Management System (VMS), like the Toyota T-Matics option available on a variety of material handling equipment many of you already access every day, can help eliminate paper, keep you stay organized, and save a few trees in the process. Here are a few ways that you can use T-Matics to go paperless. Continue reading

Scissor Lift Equipment, the Purchasing Factors You Need to Consider

Posted on

man using aichi awp by heater in warehouseA scissor lift is a type of platform that can usually only move vertically. The mechanism to achieve this is the use of linked, folding supports in a criss-cross “X” pattern, known as a pantograph (or scissor mechanism).aerial work platform (AWP), also known as an aerial device, elevating work platform (EWP), or mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) is a mechanical device used to provide temporary access for people or equipment to inaccessible areas, usually at height. There are distinct types of mechanized access platforms and the individual types may also be known as a “cherry picker” or a “scissor lift”.

According to a study published by Global Market Insights in February 2018, the rental market for aerial work platforms is expected to reach $24 billion by the year 2024 (up from around $15 billion in 2016). This sharp increase in demand is largely attributable to the booming construction industry with scissor lifts seeing the largest increase in equipment demand.

And it makes sense. Scissor lifts are practical, inherently safer than using a ladder, and they’re a more economical solution than many other powered types of equipment. So how do you choose the right scissor lift for your application? They’re all essentially the same, right? They travel and lift and lower and that’s usually good enough to get the job done, isn’t it?

Well, not quite. While many people tend to focus on the upfront cost as the only factor when purchasing or renting this type of equipment, this could end up costing you in reduced efficiency, performance, and safety, among other factors. This guide will help you understand these factors and make a better, more informed decision when it comes to the type of equipment you want on the job site. Continue reading
