Yale Materials Handling Corp. has introduced the ESC030-040AC series of electric stand-up lift trucks. These three-wheel AC lift trucks provide dependable performance for lifting capacities of 3,000 to 4,000 pounds in applications like retail distribution, food production and processing, general warehousing, and freight transportation.
Each truck features exclusive precision load positioning that allows the operator to more precisely control the truck's position while working on an incline (such as on a dock or in a trailer), minimizing the likelihood of product damage from unintended load contact. The lift truck's dual-steer tires, with hydraulic-actuated rack-and-pinion steer axle, also provide precise, reliable control.
Standard, dual independent AC drive motors with separate drive controllers provide optimum maneuverability while turning, according to the manufacturer. As the truck begins to turn, the inside motor initially slows, then stops and finally reverses to minimize the turning radius. The AC Transistor lift pump control matches pump speed with hydraulic flow requirements for increased efficiency, quieter operation, and reduced maintenance.
To increase operator comfort and productivity, the driver compartment features padded back- and arm-rests as well as a fully padded floor with a 3/4-inch thick rubber mat, a shock-absorbent "isolated" floor design that reduces operator fatigue, and a low 7-inch step height to allow easy entry and exit.
