Greenville, NC– Yale Materials Handling Corporation announced today the launch of an upgraded electric rider lift truck series with a capacity of 8,000-12,000 lbs. Designed to make a leading electric lift truck more advanced, the new Yale® ERC080-120VH lift truck series is built to meet and exceed application requirements for warehousing, retail and industrial environments. All of Yale’s new ERC080-120VH trucks have undergone rigorous durability and performance testing. The trucks can save money by eliminating fuel costs and dramatically reducing emissions, says the company. In addition, the new truck series features enhanced technologies such as a stronger and more durable powertrain, a drive axle with increased shock absorption for heavy loads, and a mast that is reinforced with ductile iron-casted cross members which resist mast rocking and lateral movement. The ERC080-120HV series presents excellent stopping power with low brake pedal effort by providing wet disc brakes. These brakes are designed to lower cost of operation by requiring no adjustments or servicing other than a periodic lubrication change at 4,000-hour intervals. The series also includes a Power-Assisted Braking System, which further increases brake and drive train life by automatically utilizing traction motor braking in proportion to operator brake pedal pressure. With reduced demand on the service brakes, the assisted braking feature lessens operator braking effort by up to 40 percent.
