Yale pallet trucks with dual lift versatility
12 December 2012
As part of its ongoing warehouse equipment development programme, Yale has introduced the MP13 light duty and MP20DL dual lift models to its motorised pedestrian pallet truck range. Both of the new pallet trucks feat
Both of the new pallet trucks feature an on-board charging system, which allows them to be plugged into a standard three-pin socket outlet for convenient battery re-charging. The company explains: "The MP13 is the perfect entry-level pedestrian pallet truck for companies where their application is considered too intensive for a basic manual pump truck. With a maximum load weight of 1,300kg, the MP13 pallet truck is based on the Yale MP16 motorised pallet truck and is powered by two 12V 55Ah automotive-type batteries that provide up to 1.5 hours of continuous operation." Inadvertent use of the truck while it is charging is prevented as the pallet truck can not be operated unless the charging plug has been relocated back into its housing on the unit.
Entry level doesn't mean fewer features on the MP13 as Antirollback, Regenerative braking, Combi MOSFET traction control on motor and hydraulics and skid plates are all standard features.
The MP20DL with a lift capacity of up to 2000kg provides users with the ability to handle loads easily when loading or unloading pallets at waist level in light and medium applications and is particularly useful in the transport, logistics and wholesale distribution sectors.
The MP20DL is also ideal for shelf replenishment and light order picking applications.With capacities of up to 2000kg at floor level and 700kg at the raised height the MP20DL can reduce operator fatigue and back strain significantly when compared to standard horizontal movers.
Both the MP20DL and MP13 share many of quality build characteristics and components of the Yale MP16 powered pallet truck.
A strong durable welded steel construction means the MP range is highly reliable and built to withstand punishing daily operation. All major components are protected in an all steel housing and are easily accessible for routine servicing and maintenance.
For minimum steering effort and ease of use a low mounted tiller arm and ergonomic tiller head is employed. The travel direction inverter button has been specifically designed for maximum angle of contact with the operator's body and when activated, automatically reverses the direction of the travel.
Easily accessible controls, ergonomic shaped comfort grip handles and integral hand guards enable operators to lift without discomfort. A creep speed control provides excellent manoeuvrability, shaving precious millimetres off the turning radius in restricted space.
