Yale Materials Handling Corporation (Greenville, NC) announces the launch of its new ERC050-060VGL series, a 5,000 to 6,000-pound capacity cushion tire lift truck designed to bring warehouse operations the benefits of factory integrated lithium-ion power, including improved productivity, ergonomics and zero emissions.
While operations have traditionally utilized a battery box replacement to convert counterbalanced lift truck battery power from lead-acid to lithium-ion, the ERC-VGL series is completely designed around a fully integrated, space-saving lithium-ion battery pack. The truck combines the company’s operator-centric approach with the advantages of lithium-ion technology to maximize comfort, convenience and performance:
- Ergonomics – A spacious compartment with a lowered floorplate allows for more headroom and increased freedom to position feet comfortably, while the optional Air-Ride Suspension Seat helps create a smooth ride for the operator.
- No emissions – Zero emissions during operation and no off-gassing required during the charging process make it a strong choice for operations subject to FDA regulation and high hygiene standards like food, beverage and pharmaceuticals.
- Efficiency – No battery maintenance and fast charging times provide meaningful performance advantages.
