By Fred Hageman

Is your major supplier talking to you a lot more about rental? Of course they are and they know what they are talking about, that’s for certain. Almost every, if not every, manufacturer of construction/industrial equipment knows that more than half of their equipment is earmarked for rental and this trend has been on an upward trajectory for decades. For the first time ever, more than 50% of ALL new equipment sold in North America goes into rental fleets. This phenomenon, called “Rental Penetration,” has been on the rise each and every single year that I’ve been in the industry—since 1988. Think “Cat Rental Store.” Cat dealers were forced, quite frankly, to get into the rental business about 20 years or so ago by corporate. Sure, some Cat dealers scattered across North America were renting prior to the mandate from Peoria, but the majority of the dealers were basically kicking and screaming at the notion. Having been in the equipment rental and sales industry for 29 years; the last 19 strictly on the mergers, acquisitions, consulting and valuation side of the rental equipment industry, I’ve seen, visited, analyzed or worked with over 3,500 equipment rental companies and dealers from coast to coast. I know what the “best practices” of rental companies are and I’ve seen the best of the best and the worst of the worst. I’ve visited countless dealerships during my career and many thought (and many still think) that they were in (or are in) the rental business. Most were only kidding themselves. Rental for many equipment dealers-material handling, and others—is surrounded by the old “AED” rental mentality—that rental is simply a financing mechanism for a sale. In reality, successful rental operators have a mindset and an approach of rentto-rent (to rent)! They, too, know the huge difference between rental profits and profits related to sales of new equipment. Sales are only a last resort/necessity, new or used, for a true rental company or “rental division” of a dealer. Don’t get me wrong, rental companies sell their used rental fleet and their “gain on sale” is nice; but it’s not their focus. It’s a necessary evil. 6

August 2017

Equipment rental companies that understand and focus most of their energy and efforts on rental are rewarded with approximately three times (yes, three times) the profit margins that equipment dealers (sales organizations) struggle to achieve. Even a small mix of pure rental will improve any dealer’s bottom line. This has been proven to me time and again as I’ve studied thousands of P&L statements over the years. In order to improve your equipment sales business and to maximize its value, now and in the future, rental should be a part of it. There are some basic fundamentals that well run, privately owned equipment companies know and perform on a consistent basis (including the publicly owned “big boys”). First and foremost, rental is to make profits, big profits, not a way to make a sale. Rental owners make a lot more than the 18-22% gross margins that dealers make on their equipment. A Rentto-Rent mentality and total buy in to the rent-to-rent mentality is a must or a true rental “division” of a dealer won’t get off the ground, let alone survive. Unless an end user has time utilization of approximately 70% or higher, it pencils out that renting vs. buying is the better option. From expensing rent/ lease payments, to maintaining the equipment, to transportation, to servicing, to storage, to getting the latest and greatest machines available, to compliance with environmental laws, to no or little down time whatsoever, to no up-front capital expenditures, etc. there is a lot to like about rental for an end user. Dealer salesman (and I’m a salesman among other things) are generally not fans of rental. Especially heavier equipment salesmen. They like the big number of a sale. What they don’t know is that the profit margin on a sale is 1/3 of the rental guy’s profit margin. Unless they own the company or take the financial risks (among other risks) the owner does, I advise not to let them prevent you, the owner, from getting into the rental business. I’ve seen this very scenario preventing dealers from getting into the rental business. Not the “lease to own” business but the rental business!

THE “LITTLE CHARGER” THAT

Cover Story I’m only scratching the surface here regarding the merits of rental, the metrics, etc., but I can tell you that the dealers I’ve assisted in getting into the rent-torent business haven’t looked back. Virtually all of my clients who I’ve assisted with their entry into rental say to me, without fail, “I wish I would have known or implemented this strategy a long time ago.”

Aftermarket Dave Baiocchi

React or Respond? Everyone that operates a dealership understands that mistakes are costly. This is why we invest so much time and effort in setting standards, drafting SOP’s and creating a system of backstops that are designed to detect errors quickly. Early detection many times gives us the opportunity to make corrections before our money, image and integrity are put at risk. When mistakes make it through the gauntlet of backstops and ultimately affect your business, how do you respond? It’s natural to respond to pain with anger. Nobody welcomes bad news. This is a lesson of leadership that I have learned from both observing others, and drawing from my own experience. One of the biggest reasons for a failing venture that can never seem to get back on track, is a leader’s inability to properly handle bad news. Let’s talk reality here. There are a hundred reasons every day to lose your cool (especially in the aftermarket departments.) Some NATIONAL OFF LEASE EQUIPMENT CENTER

of these are simply irritations. Some however are game changers: • Your best technican quits to go to work for your biggest competitor. • OHSA shows up on your doorstep to “investigate” something. • Your best customer just filed bankruptcy. • The all new and improved powder coat paint is falling off the equipment in sheets. • A union grievance shows up on your desk. These are all external issues and it’s a fact of life that sometimes, trouble visits uninvited. You did nothing to deserve it and you couldn’t do anything to prevent it. These items alone can create enough turmoil to affect the normal ebb and flow of the departments, but even more disquieting are the miscues and errors that are made internally. • We made repairs to the equipment without getting a customer approval. • We dispatched the technician to the address in the computer, but the equipment is at a remote warehouse. • That brand new service truck just got totaled.

•O  ur welder wasn’t wearing his face shield, now he’s at the hospital. • We installed the seals backwards and now we have to replace the entire assembly. Sound familiar? Shall I go on? In many of these cases the leader of the team must take responsibility for the failures of his department. Not only are there monetary consequences, but these issues also carry an emotional toll. In situations like this, many times a leader under pressure will succumb to the “throw them under the bus” syndrome. The natural reaction in the face of trouble is to lash out, and the FIRST order of business is normally to fix blame on the offending party, even to the point of terminating their employment. Doing

Aftermarket so makes the leader feel that they have appropriately dealt with the situation, expunged their record, and corrected the imbalance. In many cases however, all they have done is alienated team members and created an atmosphere of fear and instability. I am fond of suggesting (but not always executing) a response policy for leaders who naturally struggle with a propensity toward anger. It’s called “Under-React First” (URF). This is an original Baiocchi-ism. It promotes the idea of creating emotional distance between the leader and the issue at hand. This distance is created purposefully. It employs a method of decidedly choosing to under react to every obstacle, without regard to its size, cost or ramifications. The mental secret behind employing URF is the word FIRST. Using this technique, I am mentally deciding to initially under react to the news, giving myself permission (in my mind) to over react later. That allows me some level of mental escape from the emotional upheaval, blame and chaos surrounding the bad news. Properly executed, this posture does three important things. 1) It prevents you from killing the messenger. Your people will be more willing to actually communicate known issues (instead of hiding out), if they know that their boss won’t take their head off when they deliver the message. 2) It allows you to focus on gathering data, and formulate a plan to solve the problem, instead of wasting time looking for who to blame. 3) It focuses the team on alternatives and solutions, which at that moment are the only things that will resolve the issue.

If the situation warrants it, I will allow myself to overreact later. In the moment of crisis however, someone has to be in control, and, since I am the leader, I am constrained to choose me. I do what I can to emotionally disconnect, and just let my mind record the information. I don’t process it. I don’t decide anything while I am listening. I simply listen to the whole story. Then I investigate the claim. • What am I missing? • Does the original story make logical sense? • Who else has been informed about this? • Has the information been independently corroborated? • Who else can help us with this? I choose to believe nothing at full face value going in. I use the old Ronald Reagan theory of “Trust….but Verify.” Doing this, in an emotionally detached fashion, in many cases allows me to relax enough to see some obvious solutions that are difficult to formulate when your blood pressure is 300/180. This philosophy has served me well after investing the last 18 years running a business with five partners. It’s a code that can be difficult to live by, but practicing it, puts you in control of your circumstances, instead of your circumstances controlling you. This is simply a behavioral decision. The fact is, when I am able to use this method of response, I seldom if ever over-react later. Nothing cools the fire better than properly executed counter measures and thoughtful responses. Let me be clear. When errors are made, and policies are violated, punitive measures may very well need to be taken. Using URF, I am simply moving this review and possible reprimand to a time after the initial problems have been addressed, and the countermeasures are firmly in place. In my view, punitive measures should be limited to: • Repeated failures and the long term inability to perform. • The inability for a staff member to consistently deliver on mutually determined goals. • Outright insubordination and willful disobedience.

Aftermarket These all require decisive action. These circumstances however, normally develop over a substantial period of time, and the resulting consequences (if rendered properly) require a significant degree of assessment and due diligence. There are also times, more often than not, that the failures of a subordinate need to be met with your unequivocal support instead of your direct reprimand.

Leaders should not measure outcome and intent with the same yardstick. The failure of a team member could very well be due to inadequate training, the lack of a sound policy, or the absence of the tools needed to get the job done. In other words, the very failure you are blaming on your employee could very possibly have been prevented if you had done a better job of being a leader. With this in mind, do your best to meet the failures of your employees with a pragmatic posture. Resist the standard emotional reaction, and move that energy into investigation. Focus on reading the intent of the individual, as well as outcome. After showing your subordinates that you are willing to share the heat for their failure without throwing them under the bus, you very often will see an employee who will commit to working harder and being more consistent. Fear of termination and harsh reprimand normally drive acts of desperation, and even retribution. Demonstrating restraint and defending a subordinate in the midst of disorder and confusion engenders loyalty that you could never buy for wages.

Bottom Line Garry Bartecki

Changes coming to your rental business The staff of MHW informed me that the topic of the month is “Rental and Leasing.” A topic subject to MANY changes in the near future. Right now I am thinking about where to start, but start I must so here we go. These comments do not appear in any particular order. Each management team will need to prioritize them as they see fit. Tax changes They will be upon us before the end of the year. If we are lucky they will revert back to January 1, 2017. I hope that happens since it appears a lot of customers are waiting to invest until they know what the tax consequences will be. If they are lucky they will be able to buy and take delivery on December 31, 2017 and get a 100% write off in the process. You can write off 100% to some extent currently but have restrictions once you hit the dollar volume associated with Section 179 write offs. On the down side your tax deductions may not be worth as much if rates are lowered to 15-20%. That

goes the same for any carryovers you may use after the law is passed. There is the question how pass-through entities would be taxed if the corporate rate is reduced to 20%. The logic I have heard says owners of pass-through entities will have the same rate available on income over and above a reasonable salary. So you pay personal rates on the salary but get 20% on any remaining so-called corporate earnings. I believe that tax reform will provide you other opportunities or headaches as well. We will have to see what they come up with. Accounting changes Leases will be accounted for differently starting in 2019. But all current leases in effect at that time (which may include some of your current agreements) will be subject to the new rules. The new rules will require lessees to record both a right-to-use asset and the full lease liability, both for basically the same amount. The fly in the ointment for lift truck dealers is that lessees will have the option of recording the entire liability including maintenance or account the maintenance separately. I guess that means they will be asking you for the breakdown regarding the maintenance portion, which may or may not be a good thing. They tell us the banks will most likely ignore this new pile of debt on your balance sheet and on customer balance sheets. Me, I don’t believe that. The new rules don’t affect much else in terms of financial metrics but will certainly change your debt/equity ratios. So I believe you can expect requests to help figure out how to avoid this problem, but that will be tough to do if they sign a four-five year lease with maintenance. IoT is here to stay Successful equipment dealers listen to their customers to improve customer satisfaction and retention, and in the process come up with new sources of revenue. OEM’s now offer remote monitoring and analytics services on a subscription basis that identify an issue before it creates a down situation. This service is offered to both dealers and end-users, with a result of increased revenues for the dealer while improving customer satisfaction and retention because this new service helps avoid costly repairs and downtime.

Bottom Line Another advantage of this remote monitoring program is that the complexity of the system will make working on these units almost impossible without the proper tools, keeping the service business in your company and out of the hands of the general purpose tech. Digital dispatch of rental units as well as technician services are in full vogue. Soon you will have VR or IR available for techs in the field to help them complete a task properly the first time. Product-as-a-service and predictive maintenance programs are also being discussed to reduce rental costs and incentivize service levels that strive for max uptime. What customer do you know that would not like both reduced costs and improved efficiency? Probably a very short list. Lifecycle costs Want to improve your rental ROI? Then increase the number of years you keep rental units in the fleet. Many public rental companies have extended the life of units in the fleet by three years and seeing a 30% increase in ROI. I know this causes issues with your OEM, but the benefits are there because the rental

units of today are of a higher quality which can be properly maintained without causing lost profits. Some companies with proper facilities and tech strength are even extending units further beyond the initial three-year term by refurbishing or rebuilding the unit and adding another four-five years to the useful life. Fix them up, paint them, and they look pretty good. OEM’s are even starting to offer this product for a substantial discount against the new price. Want to see you Balance Sheet improve….try not buying new units for your rental fleet…..keep units in the fleet three years longer……refurbish the units and get another four-five years or rental revenue without any note payment associated with that unit. Believe me, it works. Miscellaneous As I was sifting through the Ashlead Group annual report for the year that ended April 30, 2017, I noticed a chart which projects that the top 100 rental companies will have between 65-70% of the rental market by 2020. They had 34% in 2010. I take this to mean they can increase market share by buying up the competition as well as taking more market share because they have better programs to offer customers. Watch your back! I have mentioned Winsby a few times in this column, but I have to update you about their program. I happened to sit through a demo of what they can do and after three hours of discussion I was more amazed of what they can do then I was before. I guess my point is if you sit through a short demo you will miss what the entire process has to offer. If you don’t remember, Winsby, using the latest technology, helps with customer retention as well as marketing to potential customers. I know it works and I am still amazed at how reasonable the cost is to get these results. I know of some fairly good size dealers that

Sales Trends Jeffrey Gitomer

Business plans, five-year spreadsheets and other fairy tales I have no business plan. I have no spreadsheet with five years of projected earnings. There are two reasons: Most business plans never come to fruition, and fiveyear sales projections are about as accurate as political polls. Oh, there is another reason: The people that you prepare a business plan for never read them, unless you put a one-page executive summary at the front. THIS IS WHAT I RECOMMEND: Prepare a one-page executive summary. Then create a forecast of what you believe sales will be over the next 100 days, and the next 12 months. Nothing more. Beyond that it’s a wild guess. The reason to make a 100-day plan is to ensure that in the short-term everything is much more intense, and your blue-sky effort has a deadline. I sincerely apologize if I have busted your bubble. But in the long run I have just saved you 100 hours of work, a huge consulting fee (charged by people who use boilerplated, cookie-cutter material), and the mental letdown of not achieving that plan anyway. If your banker insists on a business plan try this… Go online, download a business plan template, insert your name and logo, and in five minutes you will have a document that your banker will never read anyway. Ok, that’s a joke suggestion (or is it?) Here is the serious suggestion: Call a limousine service and rent a van. In the van, place your banker, any potential investors, some of your key executives, and your best salespeople. Create a road trip that touches five of your biggest customers in four hours. Start at 8AM at the first customer’s business, bring coffee and talk to the people who actually buy from you. Find out why they love you, talk to their CEO, tell them what your game plan is for the next 12 months – maybe have it prearranged so that they give you an order right on the spot – thank them for their business, their support and their loyalty and then go to the next customer. It is important that you bring a recording device (any smartphone will do), so that throughout the morning you’re video taping. Each time you visit a customer, go through the same process. Talking to the people that use your product or service, talking to the CEO, picking up an order, telling them your 12-month plan, and filming the entire process. 22

August 2017

MAKE CERTAIN YOU DO THIS: Get testimonials from each one of the five customers you visit. Ask why they buy from you. Get their history of doing business with you. Ask why they would refer you. And get a call to action from them. That information can be used on your website, in your proposals, on your sales presentations, as part of your social media presence, and/or in your follow-ups. After you have visited the last customer, take everyone to lunch. Nothing fancy, but not fast food. A local restaurant will work best. Make certain that they’re prepared for you. Have a book or a small gift sitting by each person’s plate. And have a general discussion about what just happened. Spend the afternoon editing the video, and get someone professional to help you. Make it real, but make it spectacular. Edit the best clips – a minute or two for each. Edit the entire thing down to 5 minutes or less. What you will have as a result of the morning will be a business plan, a marketing plan, loyal customers, excited bankers and investors, and a realworld look at your business and the relationships you have with your customers. REALITY NEWS: In spite of banker’s euphoria, they have one prime agenda with respect to lending you money: making certain that you can repay. Period. Just keep that in mind as you listen to his or her glowing evaluation of the day. What I’ve just given you is a rough outline and game plan to create spectacular engagement and results. It will take planning, it will take coordination, and it will take some hard work – but the results will give you sales, sales tools you can use forever, and relationships that will never forget what transpired that day. Or, you can write a fairy tale. Er, I mean a business plan.

Human Element Caliper Corp.

Unwrapping the secrets of hiring and development In The Mummy, the first entry in Universal’s new “Dark Universe” adventure-horror film franchise, Tom Cruise plays a sort of modern-day Indiana Jones who plunders an ancient tomb housing a mysterious sarcophagus. Now, Tom Cruise may be an expert jet pilot, samurai warrior, lawyer, sports agent, and air-guitarist, but he’s no Egyptologist. Whereas Harrison Ford might look at a secret tomb and say, “I got a bad feeling about this,” Cruise is all about “Show me the money” and digs up his find, inadvertently awakening an ancient evil bent on wreaking havoc upon the world. If only he had been able to read the hieroglyphic warning on the side of the sarcophagus, which translates (roughly) as, “You can’t handle the truth!” It’s fair to say that the more information and knowledge you have, the better decisions you will make. Like, for example, when you hire for an important position, are you taking a step that will better your company … or are you awakening a not-so-ancient evil that will hinder productivity and obstruct growth? Meaningful information could be the differentiator between hiring the right person and the wrong person. Fortunately, tools exist to help you make betterinformed hiring decisions. Just as an archeologist uses picks and trowels to uncover ancient Egyptian artifacts, a hiring manager has access to pre-employment assessments, behavioral competencies, and job models. A quick overview: Pre-employment assessments – A scientifically designed assessment can uncover an applicant’s strengths, limitations, and motivations and then translate that data into numeric scores or graphs that are measurable against other applicants who have completed the same assessment, allowing you to compare all your candidates consistently. Behavioral competencies – Using the results from the pre-employment assessment, behavioral competencies predict how an applicant will behave in real-world work situations. This gives hiring managers an idea of what to expect from the people they bring on board. Job models – Built from job-performance data collected over decades, job models represent top26

performer views of a given role (such as Analyst, Producer, Production Supervisor, etc.). Applicants’ assessment results show how similarly motivated they are compared to top performers. A 90% match suggests you have a strong candidate. A 10% match indicates you should perform a deeper evaluation before hiring that person. The good news is that all these results can be delivered in the form of easy-to-understand reports. You merely send your applicant a link, and the report is generated for you upon completion of the assessment. When horror legend Boris Karloff starred in the 1932 version of The Mummy (the first-ever film about a living mummy), he delivered a restrained, subtle performance befitting the simply story and stately presentation. 2017’s mummy, Ahmanet (played by Sophia Boutella), is a bit more … complicated. Surely you’ve seen the TV spots by now. The story has been scaled up to say the least. Just as movie plots have become more convoluted, special effects more sophisticated, and audiences more demanding of spectacle over the past 85 years, running a business has become so much more complex as well. Top-down hierarchies are giving way to cross-functional teamwork, workforces are now spread across the globe, and we are on the cusp of an artificial intelligence revolution with hard-to-predict ramifications. In such a climate, making informed, strategic hiring decisions is one of the most important things you can do as a leader. Why get lost in the dark catacombs below when assessment tools can take you to the top of the pyramid?

This division will combine groups currently located in other Caterpillar divisions to drive collaboration and implement strategic initiatives under the leadership of Snodgrass. PSLD will include design and manufacturing of wear and maintenance component products, as well as support of prime product and parts distribution, inbound and outbound logistics, warehousing functions, and packaging and container management. The newly created digital enabled solutions division will bring together the company’s data analytics group, the enterprise data hub, equipment management tools, Cat® Connect technologies and customer experience portals. Caterpillar will immediately begin an external search for an executive to lead the new division, which will report to Charter. In addition, as part of the reorganization, Caterpillar’s marketing and brand organization will become part of the existing Global Aftermarket Solutions Division led by Vice President Nigel Lewis. Caterpillar’s board of directors has appointed Damien Giraud, currently worldwide product manager for Caterpillar’s large excavators, as the vice president of GCI. www.caterpillar.com

Portable dock lifts require no pit

WIT and Dock411 offer app to rate shippers

Presto ECOA Trans-ADock™ surface mount loading dock lifts deliver all of the benefits and advantages of a permanent dock lift without the need for pit mounting. They are ideal for use in leased buildings, or places where permanent installation is not possible or practical. Trans-A-Dock™ Lifts can access a wide range of truck bed heights up to 60” and transfer loads to fixed height docks or to grade level. They are available in 3,000, 4,000, and 5,000 lb. capacities. Platforms are constructed of safety tread steel plate and are available in 72” x 72” or 72” x 96” sizes with a variety of transfer configurations. They also feature safety chains at either end and a removable hand rail.

Women In Trucking (WIT) Association’s mission includes removing obstacles that might keep women from entering or succeeding in the trucking industry. One of those obstacles often mentioned by drivers is in not knowing how to prepare for a pick up or delivery. The goal of Dock411 is to make a driver's stops faster, easier, safer, and less frustrating by showing them details about their stops before they get there. By simply entering the dock address into the app, a driver can read what the company and other drivers have written about it, including details like dock door location, yard hazards, photos of the facility, the ability to park overnight, whether pets are allowed, and up to thirty-five other items.

Uni-Dox™ inflatable shelter designed for versatility, durability Responding to the needs of facilities whose loading docks service a wide variety of truck and trailer configurations, RiteHite has introduced the Uni-Dox™ inflatable shelter. The unique design of the Uni-Dox shelter allows it to rapidly inflate after the truck is docked and deflate before it leaves. The Uni-Dox inflates 50 percent faster than other inflatable shelters, thanks to its advanced air bag and connector designs (which hold air better during inflation). Its deflation and retraction efficiency is also enhanced by the use of a counterweight retraction system instead of a motorized return. The Uni-Dox is also unlike other inflatable shelters in that it uses conforming, noninflatable draft pads to reduce the risk of damage and leaks. Not only do these draft pads diminish wear and tear on the inflatable bags, they improve the overall effectiveness and reliability of the seal. www.ritehite.com

Pelco surveillance cameras in key focus Pelco by Schneider Electric's new ExSite™ enhanced explosion-proof cameras are engineered to survive in the most demanding environments, and Optera panoramic multi-sensor cameras that are integrated with the industry’s leading VMS providers to deliver panomersive HD imaging that puts you in the middle of a scene. “Where Pelco imaging technology was perhaps a step behind the competition, we are clearly taking the lead once again with new solutions like our ExSite enhanced explosion-proof cameras and Optera panoramic multisensor cameras,” said Kevin Saldanha, director product management, Pelco by Schneider Electric. www.pelco.com

Hirschmann provides solution for Volvo’s pipelayers Volvo has partnered with Hirschmann MCS to install the cSCALE rated capacity indicator on their PL4809E and PL3005E pipelayers. Hirschmann’s cSCALE solution provides a 7” color graphic display of the pipelayer and monitors the maximum load and inclination. Sensors include angle, tilt, load pin, and anti-two block switch. An integrated datalogger / event recorder was also a requirement for the system. “The Volvo load management system is the only one of its kind,” said Tony den Hoed, Lead Engineer of Volvo’s Pipelayer Product Platform. “The combination of logic developed by Volvo with hardware and software supplied by Hirschmann has set the bar for safety in the industry.” www.belden.com

Philadelphia Scientific introduces electrolyte level indicator Philadelphia Scientific has introduced SmartBlinky Pro™, a battery watering monitor that features the industry’s brightest electrolyte indicator and which also issues an audible alarm to alert personnel that electrolyte levels are low. SmartBlinky Pro is cable-mounted near the connector for maximum visibility – perfect for batteries that never leave the truck such as in fast and opportunity charging applications. Like the entire Blinky™ line of battery watering monitors, SmartBlinky Pro prevents the unnecessary checking of electrolyte levels and helps prevent costly permanent damage to batteries due to low electrolyte levels. www.phlsci.com www.MHWmag.com

Curtiss-Wright launches contactless thumbwheel roller Curtiss-Wright Industrial division has announced the launch of the JC050, a Hall-effect thumbwheel roller that is suitable for integration within joystick hand-grips and other in-cab human-machine interfaces (HMI) in specialty offhighway vehicles. Designed by the Corporation’s brand family of Penny & Giles, the JC050 features a low under-panel depth of 23mm and return-tocenter functionality over a range of ±37° roller travel. The new thumbwheel roller is rated for 3 million operating cycles thanks to the use of non-contacting, Hall-effect sensing technology. The JC050 roller benefits from a ‘pass through’ design for any liquid or dust contamination. Electronic robustness is assured by sealing of the internal electronics to a rating of IP67. www.cw-industrialgroup.com

Metric size steel indexing plungers by J.W. Winco

Leading material-handling industry trends for 2017-2018

J.W. Winco, Inc. announced it now offers GN 817.8 metric size, steel indexing plungers with removable pin lock-out or non lock-out type. The RoHS compliant GN 817.8 indexing plungers are designed so that special versions of the indexing pins can be made economically in smaller unit quantities. If required, the indexing pins can be machined or made by the user. They are assembled with a countersunk screw and can therefore be assembled several times. All parts are supplied individually as a disassembled set. One version of the indexing plungers is used for applications where the plunger has to stay in its retracted position. www.jwwinco.com

More than simple tools of the trade, forklifts are increasingly the focus of true fleet management by their various industrial and commercial owners. Such maturation of the materialhandling industry is among the leading trends that were observed by Camso’s Product Line Executive Director, Erick Bellefleur, during the successful ProMat 2017 held in Chicago this April. This year, a record number of 900+ exhibitors spread over two halls at Chicago’s McCormick Place attracted over 40,000 materialhandling professionals to the exposition. What we see with larger fleets is that managers are becoming more and more concerned about the following question: “how much is it costing me to maintain our entire fleet of forklift trucks?” www.camso.co
