Designed for Safety
Yale has a great history for providing safe lift trucks which are suitable for a variety of applications. The ability to produce and design units for enhanced safety comes from the new technology that is available in the material handling industry and the company's experience.
Yale likes to incorporate new technology that is available into their newest designs. Some of the new technologies that are available are first applied to forklift trucks and after that proven further through functionality and durability testing. The company conducts many controlled field tests and reliability development in order to ensure their products are very safe.
So as to improve overall safety, Yale has designed and developed many new features, that have been integrated on many 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 and fatigue. These added comforts help to increase overall production.
Adjustable Operators Controls and Compartment
Adjustable operator controls enable the operators to choose the positioning of their necessary controls. This helps make the machine user friendly, regardless of who is using it. Before starting their shift, the operator can make certain she or he is as comfortable as possible.
Operator Presence System
The Operator Presence System prevents the hydraulic system operation from being operated if the operator is not in the right operating position. This presence system additionally disables directional travel on internal combustion engine truck models.
Swing-Out LPG Tank Bracket
The LPG tank has a drop down design which brings it out from the center of the vehicle to the operator's natural handling position which makes it way easier to change.
