Yale® Europe Materials Handling is to launch a new pedestrian stacker series that promises to deliver a range of customer benefits including excellent through-mast visibility and precise load lifting controls.
The Pedestrian Stacker MS10-16 series supersedes the current MS series, and introduces a number of new features including redesigned controls along with a lifting and carrying capacity of up to 1.6 tonnes.
Yale manager for warehouse products, Ron Farr, says: “Our new truck follows the Yale philosophy of designing around the operator’s needs. The result is a highly controllable and agile pedestrian stacker suitable for a range of user heights and experience levels.
“In what is an extremely competitive sector, the definitive Yale values of reliability, serviceability, ergonomics, productivity and low cost of ownership set our stacker series apart.”
The new MS 10-16 series is ideal for businesses operating within smaller facilities where manoeuvring space is limited. Thanks to robust construction and broad usability, the MS 10-16 series reinforces the competitive edge of Yale in storage rooms of supermarkets, small scale warehouses and cold stores operating to -30°C, industrial manufacturing, retail operations (such as DIY stores) and assembly operations.
The model introduces features including:
· Redesigned steering and operating controls for easy moving and positioning
· Load lifting and carrying capacity up to 1.6 tonnes
· Excellent visibility through the mast, which allows the operator to clearly see the load and forks when collecting and depositing loads
· Proportional lifting and separate precision lifting controls for precise fork placement and for handling delicate loads
“We believe these capabilities, coupled with a maximum travel speed of 6km/h, ensure this model will be appreciated for its performance, controllability and overall productivity,” adds Ron.
“The Yale MS 10-16 series is engineered to be easy to service while the durable design and low energy consumption keeps the ongoing running costs under control.”
The MS 10-16 series comes with a comprehensive range of options allowing the stacker to be finely tailored for each individual customer application. These include work-assist accessories, lateral battery extraction, varying fork lengths and widths, key pad access, integrated load backrest and extended warranty options.
