Designed for Safety
Yale is famous for offering safe lift trucks that are flexible and adaptable for various tasks and applications. The ability to design and make units for better safety comes from the new technology that is available in the material handling business and the company's experience.
Yale likes to integrate new technology that is available into their newest designs. Some 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 various controlled field tests and reliability development so as to ensure their products are very safe.
In order to enhance overall safety, Yale has engineered and developed lots of new features, which have been incorporated on a lot of models such as:
Operator Compartment Ergonomics and Controls
The operator compartment has been designed with ergonomics in mind, utilizing state-of-the-art technology. These designs help to ensure that the operator avoids heavy repetitive motions as well as fatigue. These added comforts help to increase overall efficiency.
Adjustable Operators Controls and Compartment
Having adjustable operator's compartment and controls allows the necessary controls to be able to be positioned in close proximity to a huge range of operators. This helps make the machine user friendly, regardless of who is using it. Before beginning their shift, the operator could make sure she or he is as comfortable as she or he could be.
Operator Presence System
Yale's hydraulic system operation called the Operator Presence System prevents the operation of the machinery if the operator is not in the right 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 operator's natural handling position making the tank easier to change.
