Designed for Safety
Yale has a great history for providing safe lift trucks that are suitable for a variety of applications. The ability to produce and design units for improved 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 incorporating newly available technologies. Several of the new technologies which are available are initially applied to forklift trucks and then later proven further through durability testing and functionality. The company conducts numerous controlled field tests and reliability development in order to make sure that their products are really safe.
Some of Yale's innovative designs and technology that has been incorporated as standard features for their fleet so as to improve overall safety consist of the following:
Operator Compartment Controls and Ergonomics
The ergonomics in the operator compartment along with the controls are made with state-of-the-art technology. These designs help to guarantee that the operator avoids exhaustion as well as heavy repetitive motions. These added comforts help to increase overall production.
Adjustable Operators Compartment and Controls
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 machine user friendly, regardless of who is utilizing it. Prior to starting their shift, the operator could make certain she or he 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 additionally disables directional travel on internal combustion engine truck models.
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 operator's natural handling position making the tank easier to change.
