Feb 18, 2013 7:00 AM
At the ProMat 2013 show in Chicago IL recently, Yale Materials Handling Corporation introduced the MO25 center rider lift truck, in addition to several new features and options for its line of warehouse lift trucks.
The new Yale MO25 center rider lift truck eases second level order picking through its fully adjustable electronic power steering, automatic speed reduction in cornering, and its suspended platform with an operator sensing floor mat. Electric steering reduces steer effort by 90%. The MO25 truck features several operator compartment and platform advantages for efficiency and ergonomic benefits. The control handle reduces arm movement needed to change directions, helping to reduce fatigue, increase productivity, and allow the operator to remain inside the truck footprint for protection. The truckís electro-mechanical disc brakes are top-mounted for ease of maintenance or inspection.
Also on display were new features for the firmís MPE080VG end rider, ESC040AC three-wheel stand lift truck, and three-wheel ERP-VT sit-down truck. The MPE end rider offers enhanced rollers and entry bar for better pallet entry and exit, and also includes an electric power steering option. Also new to the MPE is voice-directed picking technology for greater efficiency and ease of use and maneuverability. The ESC three-wheel stand and ERP-VT sit-down trucks both share a new integral sideshifting fork positioner that permits load and fork positioning for various pallet sizes to be adjusted without the operator leaving the compartment.
Yale markets a full line of materials handling lift truck products and services, including electric, gas, LP-gas, and diesel-powered lift trucks; as well as narrow aisle, very narrow aisle, and motorized hand trucks. Trucks are manufactured in an ISO 9001:2008-registered facility and range in capacity from 2,000 to 36,000 lbs.
