Atlanta, GA – Yale Materials Handling Corporation introduced the MPB045-VG heavy-duty walkie pallet truck at MODEX 2014. The new walkie is designed to increase efficiency and productivity through exceptional operator comfort and innovative performance-enhancing features, says the company. When the operator turns the truck during cornering, the Smart Slow Down™ technology automatically reduces the truck’s speed, enabling the operator to maneuver through the warehouse with increased confidence. Designed to balance the constraints of steer effort, visibility and maneuverability, the new heavy-duty walkie pallet truck’s control handle is optimally positioned through a mid-mounted, shortened design. The control handle provides optimized ergonomics with the largest operating range, allowing the operator to move the handle to various working positions while also providing a solid grip for additional control. Lift, lower and horn push buttons are located at the operator’s fingertips for easy access without having to release the grip.
