RM Online - What your customer needs to know about material handling
"Contractors have learned over the years that owning equipment can put them in a bind when it breaks down or gets old," says Baron Lyhne, Komatsu sales manager and a national account representative for Komatsu forklifts for dealer Theros Equipment, based in Lorton, Va.
"Construction rental owners stand to increase their rentals substantially in good times because contractors are increasingly renting rather than owning their equipment," he
"Differentiation among models has reached the point of almost nothing," Lyhne
"So what owners are doing is making a drive for productivity.
"Internationally, manual forklifts outsell automatics, and we're starting to see a huge increase in the United States," Lyhne
"These products minimize greatly the need for a lot of space to store rental items as well as the amount of labor needed," Lyhne
"The item has been around internationally for years, but it's a trend that is just beginning to hit the United States now.
"You can't put a price on the time and labor savings of being able to punch a few buttons and get the inventory you need.
It makes items easily accessible," Lyhne
