Engineered for Safety
Yale is renowned for providing safe lift trucks that are flexible and adaptable for various applications and tasks. The ability to make and design models for improved safety comes from the new technology which is available in the company's experience and the material handling industry.
In their latest designs, Yale has started integrating newly available technologies. Several of the new technologies which are on the market are first applied to forklift trucks and after that proven further through functionality and durability testing. The company conducts numerous controlled field tests and reliability development in order to make certain that their products are really safe.
Some of Yale's innovative designs and technology that has been incorporated as standard features for their fleet in order to enhance overall safety include the following:
Operator Compartment Controls and Ergonomics
The ergonomics within the operator compartment along with the controls are made with state-of-the-art technology. These designs help to guarantee that the operator avoids heavy repetitive motions and fatigue. These added comforts help to increase overall efficiency.
Adjustable Operators Controls and Compartment
Having adjustable operator's compartment and controls enables the necessary controls to be able to be positioned near a wide array of operators. This helps make the machine user friendly, regardless of who is using it. Prior to starting their shift, the operator could make certain she or he is as comfortable as she or he can be.
Operator Presence System
The Operator Presence System prevents the hydraulic system operation from being utilized if the operator is not in the right operating position. This presence system also disables directional travel on trucks which have internal combustion engines.
Swing-Out LPG Tank Bracket
The LPG tank has a drop down design that brings it out from the vehicle's center to the natural handling position of the operator which makes it far easier to change.
