Engineered for Safety
Yale is renowned for offering safe lift trucks which are adaptable and flexible for many different tasks and applications. The ability to produce and engineer units for better safety comes from the new technology which is available in the material handling business and the company's experience.
In their latest designs, Yale has started incorporating newly available technologies. Several of the new technologies that are on the market are first applied to forklift trucks and after that proven further through functionality and durability testing. The company conducts many reliability development and controlled field tests so as to make certain that their products are really safe.
Some of Yale's innovative designs and technology which has been integrated as standard features for their fleet so as to enhance overall safety consist of the following:
Operator Compartment Controls and Ergonomics
The ergonomics in the operator compartment as well as the controls are made with state-of-the-art technology. These designs help to guarantee that the operator avoids heavy repetitive motions as well as fatigue. These extra comforts help to increase overall production.
Adjustable Operators Compartment and Controls
Adjustable operator controls enable the operators to choose the positioning of their necessary controls. This helps make the machinery user friendly, regardless of who is utilizing it. Before beginning their shift, the operator could make certain he or she is as comfortable as possible.
Operator Presence System
The Operator Presence System prevents the hydraulic system operation from being used if the operator is not in the correct operating position. This presence system also disables directional travel on trucks which have IC engines.
Swing-Out LPG Tank Bracket
The drop-down design brings the LPG 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.
