Yale Materials Handling Corporation has launched its new GC050LX cushion tire and GP050LX pneumatic tire internal combustion lift trucks. Both models provide the right balance of efficiency, productivity, dependability and durability for a wide variety of moderate-duty materials handling applications.
"These trucks are a high quality addition to our internal combustion truck line," said J.B. Mayes, manager, product strategy – internal combustion for NACCO Materials Handling Group, Inc. "They are an effective solution for everyday material handling needs in moderate-duty applications. Their low fuel consumption, coupled with their performance and ergonomics, allows the GC/GP050LX to move more loads per gallon of fuel than the competition. At a lift capacity of 5,000 lbs., these models strike the perfect balance between the number of loads it moves and the amount of fuel it uses – utilizing 12 percent less than the competitors’ average."
The cost-effective GC/GP050LX lift trucks have taken the best things about the heavier-duty Yale Veracitor® trucks – smart design, solid construction, industry-leading durability and reliable performance – and adapted them for use in moderate-duty working conditions. From its high quality hydraulic and electrical system components to its durable transmission, the GC/GP050LX provides users with a simple, cost-effective lift truck.
"A ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach is not always the best solution," Mayes said. "We’ve optimized the components of the GC/GP050LX to suit moderate-duty applications, giving you heavy-duty construction where you need it, and simplicity everywhere else."
These streamlined, easy-to-operate trucks feature excellent fuel economy and carefully considered ergonomics designed for operator comfort. Both the GC050LX and the GP050LX are agile and maneuverable. With an electronically controlled Powershift transmission for smooth direction changes, moving around in tight spaces is easy. The optional integral side shifter allows loads to be optimally positioned and the responsive, electronically-controlled inching adjustments give operators better control of their load positioning. The human-friendly design makes operator comfort and adjustability a top priority and includes extra foot space, an adjustable tilting steer column and increased visibility.
