Engineered for Safety
Yale has a great history for offering safe lift trucks that are suitable for a variety of applications. The ability to design and manufacture models for enhanced safety comes from the new technology that is available in the material handling business and the company's experience.
In their newest designs, Yale has started integrating newly available technologies. Several of the new technologies that are available are initially applied to forklift trucks and after that proven further through functionality and durability testing. The company conducts many reliability development and controlled field tests in order to make sure that their products are really safe.
To be able to improve overall safety, Yale has engineered and developed lots of new features, which have been integrated on many models such as:
Operator Compartment Ergonomics and Controls
The ergonomics within the operator compartment as well as the controls are made with state-of-the-art technology. These designs help to ensure that the operator avoids heavy repetitive motions as well as exhaustion. These extra comforts help to increase overall productivity.
Adjustable Operators Controls and Compartment
Having adjustable operator's compartment and controls enables the necessary controls to be able to be positioned near a huge range of operators. This helps make the equipment user friendly, regardless of who is using it. Prior to beginning their shift, the operator can make sure she or he is as comfortable as he or she could be.
Operator Presence System
Yale's hydraulic system operation referred to as the Operator Presence System prevents the operation of the equipment if the operator is not in the right operating position. This presence system also disables directional travel on trucks that have IC engines.
Swing-Out LPG Tank Bracket
The drop-down design brings the liquid propane gas tank out from the protected center of the truck and down to the natural handling position of the operator making the tank easier to change.
