Yale Materials Handling Corporation has unveiled the ERC-VA series, its next generation of electric lift trucks designed for improved ergonomics and performance.
New features and updates include:
•Newly designed operator compartments and comfort
•16% more floor space
•Relocated multifunction displays that ensure enhanced visibility and precise pallet control
•Improved brake pedal layout
•Auto Deceleration Systems that reduce operator fatigue
•Steel hoods that provide maximum battery service access
“Through intelligently applied technology, the ERC-VA series sets a new standard in electric lift trucks by lowering overall operating costs and energy consumption while maximizing productivity,” said David McNeill, manager, product strategy–Electric Rider trucks, Yale Materials Handling Corp.
With lifting capacities of 3,000 to 4,000 lbs, the new ERC-VA series offers significant performance and versatility for a variety of material handling applications. By using AC motors and transistor controller technology for both traction and hydraulic systems, Yale has reduced the frequency and cost of maintenance. The Yale-designed thermal management system continuously monitors the ERC-VA series’ controller and motor temperature. Upon identifying irregularity, the system protects the component by automatically adjusting truck performance.
According to the VDI Energy Cycle Standardized Test, the ERC-VA series consumes the lowest amount of energy compared with similar lift trucks.
Yale markets materials handling lift truck products and services including electric-, gas-, LP-gas-, and diesel-powered lift trucks; and 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.
