Greenville, NC – Yale Materials Handling Corporation has launched the new Yale® ERP080-100VM electric-powered lift truck series in the North American market. Built to exceed customer expectations, the sit-down, electric-powered, pneumatic tire lift truck series is available in 8,000, 9,000 and 10,000 pound models, and offers an environmentally friendly option for industries that have historically been powered by internal combustion engines (ICE). To attain maneuverability and maximum uptime, the ERP080-100VM comes with a standard 80-volt control system and extended shift feature that permits balanced battery run time and truck productivity. The new platform utilizes AC transistor control technology that allows precise load handling with less noise, while the AC motors eliminate brushes completely—along with brush service and maintenance. The new electric-powered lift truck series uses auto deceleration, which reduces brake wear and extends brake life by automatically slowing the truck through regenerative braking. In addition, the trucks oil-cooled wet disc brakes are completely sealed from water and other contaminants, translating to more time on the warehouse or plant floor, instead of in the shop, as no service brake or auto parking brake adjustments are needed. With fewer serviceable parts than comparable ICE trucks and a 500-hour service interval, the new Yale® electric-powered lift truck series provides reduced maintenance requirements. When maintenance is required though, removable floor and side plates provide simplified access to serviceable components.
