The new standards place greater responsibility on the equipment user/owner regardless of whether they are a large maintenance operation or a small business that rents a scissor lift, boom lift, etc. for seasonal work. Employers, owners and operators must be in compliance by December 10, 2019.

In the Bay Area, and throughout Northern California, hundreds of facilities with high-traffic applications have switched to high speed doors. They preserve cleanliness, conserve energy by helping to maintain a consistent temperature, and offer other cost-saving benefits.
We help customers save thousands of dollars by switching to electric Polaris GEM vehicles. They’re low maintenance and can run up to 8 hours on a single charge. Large fleets can save six-figures in fuel and maintenance costs, not to mention significantly reducing their CO2 emissions.
When you think about it, most operations don't need a truck designed to be driven 80 mph on the freeway. On a typical campus, vehicles never exceed 25 mph and are only driven about 12 miles per day. So why pay more for a full-size vehicle? We’re happy to provide a personal consultation, but here’s a quick combustion to electric fleet savings calculator.
Polaris GEM vehicles are also eligible for alternative-fuel vehicle funding programs such as The San Joaquin Valley Air Grant (up to $20,000 per vehicle, $100,000 per agency per year).
So which one is better? It all depends on your operation...

Some of the most popular options are 3rd and 4th function valves to provide added versatility such as and side-shifting fork positioners, and one of the reasons the 8fgu25 is called the “Swiss Army Knife” of forklifts.
Traction-treaded solid pneumatic tires are a popular option because they are puncture-resistant yet offer a smooth ride over rougher terrain. For applications where the forklift used is used on non-paved applications (driveways, loading ramps) in addition to smooth surfaces - this is truly the best of both worlds.
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Compliance and Certification are designed to prevent foodborne illnesses. Unfortunately, bacterial contamination remains a leading cause of FDA recalls.
Food contamination from Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria monocytogenes has actually increased in recent years - from 28 percent of food recalls to over 31 percent. With all the rules and requirements, how is this still a problem?
