2005 witnessed increased sales of Yale trucks across Europe, through extended market coverage and the introduction of exciting new products. Yale's commitment to continuously improving its product offering was clearly demonstrated at CeMAT where Yale showcased its new range of AC powered warehouse trucks and the new 1-3.5 tonne engine powered, Veracitor TM VX counterbalance trucks.
Yale introduces affordable AC power on warehouse trucks
The higher torque and smooth operation of AC power is now available to customers seeking increased productivity when operating powered pallet trucks, stackers and low-level order picking trucks in the warehouse. Yale has extended AC drive motor and the latest control technology to its latest range of warehouse trucks and low-level order pickers, developed with an extensive range of requirements and handling needs in mind.
Yale 3-wheel ATF with AC technology is still the best seller in the warehouse.
With 3 lift capacity options at 1600, 1800 and 2000Kg, the ever versatile AC powered 48 Volt Yale ATF range remains the best selling truck of its type, equally at home in the warehouse or in the loading yard. With long and short wheel base options and compact dimensions ideal for use in narrow aisles, it's easy to see why the Yale ATF is so popular for both indoor and outdoor use.
The new Yale Veracitor TM VX will take Yale from strength to strength
The launch of the new 1-3.5 tonne engine powered, Veracitor TM VX counterbalance trucks with ADS (auto deceleration system), CSE (continuous stability enhancement) and Intellix VSM TM (vehicle system manager) diagnostic system, is evidence of Yale's determination to uphold its reputation as a manufacturer of market leading diesel and gas powered counterbalance trucks.
Seen for the first time in Germany at CeMAT, the Veracitor TM VX has set new standards for truck design with respect to operator ergonomics and productivity. The series incorporates a range of options tailored to each application, offering a true materials handling solution for each of its customers.
