Engineered for Safety
Yale has a great history for providing safe lift trucks that are suitable for a variety of uses. The ability to design and manufacture units for better safety comes from the new technology which is available in the material handling industry and the company's experience.
In their latest designs, Yale has started incorporating newly available technologies. Some of the new technologies that are available are initially applied to forklift trucks and after that proven further through functionality and durability testing. The company performs various reliability development and controlled field tests so as to make sure that their products are really safe.
Some of Yale's innovative designs and technology which has been integrated as standard features for their fleet in order to enhance overall safety include the following:
Operator Compartment Ergonomics and Controls
The ergonomics within the operator compartment as well as the controls are made with state-of-the-art technology. These designs help to ensure that the operator avoids heavy repetitive motions as well as exhaustion. These extra comforts help to increase overall production.
Adjustable Operators Controls and Compartment
Having adjustable operator's compartment and controls allows the necessary controls to be able to be positioned in close proximity to a huge range of operators. This helps make the machinery user friendly, regardless of who is operating it. Prior to beginning their shift, the operator could make sure he or she is as comfortable as he or she could be.
Operator Presence System
Yale's hydraulic system operation called the Operator Presence System prevents the use of the machine if the operator is not in the correct operating position. This presence system additionally disables directional travel on trucks which have IC engines.
Swing-Out LPG Tank Bracket
The drop-down design brings the LPG tank out from the protected center of the truck and down to the operator's natural handling position making the tank easier to change.
