A forklift to be a successful unit must be built strong to last the working conditions for many hours of use. It should be able to move cargo quickly and effectively too. The machine should also be ergonomically correct and comfortable for the operator.
Yale's powertrain is both rugged and reliable. The powertrain requires the power to always provide great durability through its computer-managed engine and transmission. It offers state-of-the-art clutch packs along with really tough shafts and robust gears. The drive, steer axle, engine and transmission are all isolated to lessen noise and vibration inside of the operator's compartment.
Mazda and GM Gas & LP Engines:
The Mazda LP and GM Gas Engines are made from cast-iron blocks for long life. These equipment offer an electronically-controlled closed loop fuel system which needs minimal repair or adjustment. These kinds of engines also have hardened exhaust valve seats which minimize wear.
Cummins and Yanmar Diesel Engines:
Both the Yanmar and Cummins diesel engine offer a higher compression ratio leading to improved torque. Amazing fuel consumption is provided by effective fuel systems.
Standard Electronic Powershift Transmission:
The electronic powershift transmission is standard on the majority of machinery. It features gears which are 15% stronger and shafts which provide resistance when driving on rough terrain. The strong 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 requirements by compensating for brake wear.
The Techtronix Transmission utilizes computer-controlled power reversal to eliminate shock loading, increase durability and extend the life of the tires. In addition, the auto deceleration feature lessens brake wear and brake pedal usage.
The Drive Axle is engineered for extra durability with its brake drum mounting, full floating axle shaft and the pinion gears and strong ring. This component also has optional oil cooled wet disc brakes which are entirely sealed against contamination and practically maintenance free.
To protect the steer cylinder for debris and damage, the Steer Axle features a "sandwich" design. This Steer Axle also has a fixed-length tie rods that can add extra stability and durability. 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 regular packages, they have included a lot of ergonomic features and safety features. These machines will handle tough environments, while keeping the operator safe and comfortable for the duration of their shift.
