Engineered for Safety
Yale has a great history for providing safe lift trucks which are suitable for a variety of applications. The ability to engineer and make models for better safety comes from the new technology that is available in the company's experience and the material handling business.
Yale likes to incorporate new technology that is available into their latest designs. Several of the new technologies which are available are first applied to forklift trucks and then later proven further through durability testing and functionality. The company conducts many controlled field tests and reliability development so as to make sure that their products are really safe.
So as to enhance overall safety, Yale has engineered and developed a lot of new features, which have been incorporated on a lot of models including:
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 fatigue and heavy repetitive motions. These added comforts help to increase overall productivity.
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 operating it. Before beginning their shift, the operator can make sure she or he is as comfortable as possible.
Operator Presence System
Yale's hydraulic system operation referred to as the Operator Presence System prevents the operation of the machinery 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 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.
