Yale Materials Handling Corp. has launched the ERC050-060VGL series, a 5,000 to 6,000-pound capacity cushion tire lift truck featuring factory integrated lithium-ion power.
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.
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 suitable for operations subject to FDA regulation and high hygiene standards like food, beverage and pharmaceuticals.
Yale also offers a factory integrated lithium-ion option in the same 5,000 to 6,000-pound capacity range for its pneumatic model, the ERP-VLL, as well as a 15,500 to 19,000-pound capacity option, the ERP-VNL series.
