Lift Trucks

Lift trucks can make work much easier. With the right lift truck, warehouses and many industries will have a higher level of performance while enjoying lower costs. For example, if you have a company now that needs a lift truck but you were using the wrong type, you could be taking twice as long to get the job done. The result is that you are losing labor hours and therefore, money. As you will discover in this article, there are many different options of lift trucks. Therefore, to get the most out of your equipment, you need to consider your specific needs and then choose the truck that will help you do the work easier, quicker, and safer.

Electric Rider Trucks This type of lift truck has been proven to be efficient, provide high performance, and be reliable. Take the Yale electric truck for example. This truck has microprocessors and control boards, which are designed to interface with all other truck systems. This means the diagnostic capabilities and programmability is done in real time. The stand-up and sit-down rider components are also engineered to ensure top performance and low maintenance life. With the operator comfort and ergonomic design, you will experience higher levels of productivity. Electric rider trucks can accommodate from 2,000 to 12,000 pounds. Finally, this type of electric truck is designed to last 60 years or more. To give you an idea of specific models, consider the following information:

Narrow Aisle Trucks If you have a warehouse or dock that has very narrow aisle room, this Yale lift would be the perfect choice. The design of this lift has a drive motor and is application driven, which ensures top levels of performance and efficiency. Additionally, all of the straddle and reach trucks use the special Yale Electronics System (YES), which consists of a microprocessor-based control board. This design can interface with all truck systems for excellent programming. Specific models to consider include:
  • OS-EC This is an order selector type lift with a 3,000-pound capacity
  • OS-BE With this lift, you can select orders up to 3,000 pounds
  • SS-BE This lift is a straddle selector, also accommodating up to 3,000 pounds
Motorized Hand Trucks If you are looking for performance, this type of lift would be one to consider. Typically, Yale and other companies that make motorized hand lifts can design a truck to meet your specific application, as well as industry, whether it is for pallet, platform, or stacking work. With this truck, you will get many benefits, some of which include your choice of 2,000 to 8,000-pound models. Specific models include:
  • MTR This lift is a tow tractor than can handle between 700 and 1,000 DBP
