Yale Materials Handling Corporation is showcasing its next generation of agile, productive and ultra reliable electric lift trucks here at the show. William Pfleger, president of Yale Distribution (Booth 918), said the addition of the fourth wheel disperses bumps on the travel surface for improved operator comfort.
Leading the way in ergonomics and performance, the ERC-VA series is among the most productive and highly durable electric lift trucks on the market. New features and updates include: newly designed, industry-leading operator compartments and comfort; 16% more floor space; relocated multifunction displays that ensure enhanced visibility and precise pallet control; improved brake pedal layout; auto Deceleration Systems which reduce operator fatigue; and steel hoods that provide for maximum battery service access.
“This is a really comfortable truck,” said Pfleger, who emphasized features such as best-in-class foot room and redesigned dash for improved fork visibility.
Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
