Walking Burns Calories, Time, Money and Efficiency

Posted on

No efficiency walking aboutFew of us have the time to walk to work, but it seems many of us have the time to spend walking around while at work. Walking from hear to there and back in the yard, warehouse or plan takes serious time. Time that costs your company money and efficiency.

You might wonder what a solution would cost, it would be time better spent if you pondered over just what the cost is for not taking options available to you today through Taylor-Dunn personnel and burden carriers. Let’s look at one example now. Continue reading

A Better Safer Dock

Posted on

“Ba-bump, ba-bunk.” That was the sound Greg Nicholas, chief operating officer of Citrus Systems Inc., heard all day from his office. It was the sound of forklift trucks driving on and off the trailers, which he could hear even though his office was located 150 feet away from the company’s loading docks.

The noise was annoying, but worse, it was a sign of a serious problem. The dock levelers were terrible for the lift-truck drivers’ backs. The levelers were the old pull-chain style units, with a welded plate in front and a fold-down lip, which created a hump that lift trucks had to drive over. And because Citrus Systems, which makes private-label fruit drinks and other items for the dairy, grocery, and food-service trades, was a busy, growing operation, the drivers were driving over that lip many times each day, causing sore backs for the operators and extra wear on the lift trucks.

Forklift Dispatcher Completes Trans Am Bike Race 2016

Posted on

luke kocher day oneIn March of 2012 Luke Kocher started his career at Toyota Lift of Minnesota working in our parts department. It didn’t take Luke long to display the sort of abilities and drive he displayed these past few week when he completed the Trans Am Bike Race peddling four thousand, two hundred and seventy miles from Astoria Oregon to Yorktown Virginia in the self-supported coast-to-coast ride in just twenty five days.

Quoting the Trans Am Race website “The organizer of this race had planned for years to do a solo run of this route in a similar manner to most bike-packing ultra-endurance racing events and wanted to bring it to a larger audience. In keeping with the open format of most of these races, anyone is free to race. Ultra-racers, randonneurs, tour riders, gravel grinders, speed-tourists, and anyone who has a passion for taking on the open road in a speedy manner.  You win by taking what you can from it. The route is estimated to be at 4400 miles covering 10 states. A good racing time could be any where from 15 days to 40 days depending on the racer’s goals and experience.”

Here at work we were glued to the race’s tracker from the first day to the last following Luke’s progress praying that the equipment breakdowns he was experiencing wouldn’t get in the way of him completing his goal. With each day that passed it became harder for us to imagine the level of effort it required for Luke to cycle on to the finish, but all of us had witnessed Luke’s work towards this accomplishment.
