Yale Materials Handling Corp. has unveiled its next generation of agile, productive, and reliable electric rider lift trucks. The new ERC-VA series trucks offer greater operator comfort than previous models, the company says. New features include an improved brake pedal layout, an Auto Deceleration System that reduces operator fatigue, and steel hoods that provide for maximum battery service access. In addition, the vehicles' multifunction displays have been relocated to ensure enhanced visibility and precise pallet control.
The ERC-VA series trucks are designed to minimize overall operating costs and energy consumption while maximizing productivity. With lifting capacities of 3,000 to 4,000 pounds, the electric trucks offer significant performance and versatility for a wide variety of material handling applications. By utilizing AC motors and transistor controller technology for both the traction and hydraulic systems, Yale has reduced the frequency and cost of maintenance.
The trucks' thermal management system continuously monitors the units' controller and motor temperature. Upon identifying irregularity, the system protects the component by automatically adjusting truck performance. The trucks are also engineered to minimize energy consumption, which not only reduces their environmental impact but also provides for a faster return on investment.
