A lift truck to be a successful unit must be built strong to last the working conditions for many hours of use. It needs to be able to transport loads effectively and quickly too. The equipment has to also be both comfortable and ergonomically correct for the operator.
The Yale powertrain is rugged and reliable. It needs to be strong enough to always provide incredible strength through its computer-managed transmission and engine. It provides state-of-the-art clutch packs combined with extremely tough shafts and strong gears. The steer axle, drive, engine and transmission are all isolated in order to decrease vibration and noise inside the compartment of the operator.
Mazda and GM Gas & LP Engines:
The Mazda LP and GM Gas Engines are made from cast-iron blocks for long life. These kinds of equipment provide an electronically-controlled closed loop fuel system that needs minimal adjustment or repair. These types of engines also have hardened exhaust valve seats which reduce wear.
Yanmar and Cummins Diesel Engines:
Both the Cummins and Yanmar diesel engine provide a higher compression ratio leading to better torque. Amazing fuel consumption is offered by efficient fuel systems.
Regular Electronic Powershift Transmission:
The electronic powershift transmission is standard on nearly all machines. It features gears that are 15% stronger and shafts which give resistance when driving on rough terrain. The durable clutch packs offer 3 times the life of preceding packs. Last of all, there is available electronic inching which adjusts automatically so as to decrease maintenance needs by compensating for brake wear.
The Techtronix Transmission uses computer-controlled power reversal to extend the life of the tires, to eliminate shock loading and increase durability. Also, the auto deceleration feature lessens both brake wear and brake pedal usage.
The Drive Axle is engineered for extra durability with its full floating, brake drum mounting axle shaft and the pinion gears and strong ring. This particular part also has optional oil cooled wet disc brakes which are entirely sealed against contamination and practically maintenance free.
The Steer Axle features a "sandwich" design to be able to protect the steer cylinder from debris and damage. It has fixed-length tie rods to add more durability and stability. The tapered roller bearings help to resist front to back and side-to-side forces. What's more, cast ductile iron axle increases toughness and lessens wear.
As part of Yale's standard packages, they have included a lot of ergonomic features and safety features. These equipment would handle tough environments, while keeping the operator safe and comfortable for the duration of their shift.
