Yale Lift Truck Technologies has expanded the availability of Yale Reliant, its advanced operator assist solution, to 13 additional Yale lift truck models. Electric counterbalanced trucks in the 3,000-12,000-pound capacity ranges and the company’s very narrow aisle (VNA) turret truck and enclosed end rider join the five other core warehouse models available with the operator assistance technology.
The Yale Reliant solution uses multiple detection technologies to monitor the surrounding environment and the status of the lift truck and load. Yale Reliant automatically adjusts lift truck performance so that operators are alerted by feeling the truck respond, helping reinforce best practices to support truck stability.
The system constantly monitors truck and load status to prioritize stability as it implements hydraulic and traction controls. In practice, Yale Reliant can provide warnings and assist with operator awareness by proactively reducing truck speed if it detects something in the monitored area, such as obstacles, other trucks or pedestrians.
