Yale Materials Handling Corporation is rolling out the first trucks in its new Series N line-up with the introduction of counterbalance models available in the 4,000 - 7,000 lb. (1,800 – 3,200 kg) capacity range.
Built on a scalable platform, the Series N offers strong productivity, operator ergonomics and a low total cost of ownership. It also allows materials handling operations to option up, based on their unique needs.
“Cost pressures and labour shortages are testing the ability of operations to balance profitability with productivity,” says Brad Long, brand manager, Yale Materials Handling Corporation. “Equipment can be part of the solution, but the one-size-fits-all forklift approach of yesteryear won’t cut it. The Series N gives warehouses and retail operations the freedom to dial the trucks to their own standards to meet the needs of their operators, application and business challenges.”
The GP40-70N can be ordered with optional operator assistance systems designed to further support operator and pedestrian awareness, and help prevent facility and product damage in specific applications. These technologies include a rear-facing camera and rear-view display, spotlights and pedestrian awareness lights, and a pre-set lift height selector.
The Yale approach mirrors Hyster’s recent launch of its all-new A Series, a new line of forklifts based on an A Series truck platform and allowing customers to choose the options they need.
