A forklift has to be really tough to last for many hours of heavy use in extreme settings. These machinery have to be able to move loads efficiently and fast while still being ergonomic to the operator. The reliable, rugged Yale powertrain provides excellent durability through its extremely strong gears and shafts, state of the art clutch pack and computer controlled engine and transmission. The transmission, engine, drive axle and steer axle are all isolated in order to reduce noise and vibration in the compartment of the operator.
The electrical system of a lift truck is responsible for linking the truck's major nerve centers together. Therefore, the electrical system within the lift truck must be reliable and durable for the most demanding cold/hot and dry/wet operations. There is much sophistication required in order to control truck functionality.
Yale trucks are known for delivering reliable electronics. The Yale CANbus electrical system makes use of digital technology and reduces wiring and lessens electrical connections as well. This results in awesome serviceability and improved reliability.
The hydraulics are the "muscles" of the forklift. They give the necessary force needed to lift heavy loads during the entirety of a long shift. All Yale trucks feature industrial grade hydraulic components. Some of these parts include: leak resistant O-ring face seal fittings, heavy-duty hydraulic valves, fine micron filters and long lasting hoist and tilt cylinders. The control valve has been strategically placed so as to prolong component life by minimizing exposure to heat sources.
Yale's diesel forklifts offer extreme dependability and are known for withstanding harsh working situations and coming out on top. These machines have been constructed in such a precise way that attention to detail has been taken into consideration so as to keep the operator as comfortable as possible.
