The new MO20 low level order picker from Yale has been developed to optimise speed and ease of picking when retrieving goods from both sides of a warehouse aisle.
Combining ergonomics, efficiency and reliability Yale has given the product extensive customer trials in Germany and the UK.
Designed to assist the operator in achieving increased pick rates, the MO series offers a large reduced height comfortable work platform. This allows easier pass-through with 'on and off' access which helps to minimise operator movement and saves time while picking.
The scooter control feature provides finger tip control when on the platform. In addition, a creep speed function allows the operator to move the pallet truck to the next pick location without having to access the truck.
A key design element is the proximity of the operator to the goods. Further key features include a 2,6kW motor delivering high performance acceleration and travel speed which provides maximum productivity over the full shift period and for horizontal transport activities such as cross-docking and load shuttling.
Performance can be set by the service technician to suit the application needs.
Regenerative braking and anti-roll back on slopes are standard on the series and can be set by the service technician to suit the application needs.
The MO series includes a range of models with various fork lengths to cater for various pick requirements including ground level picking to pallet or roll cages and frequent second level picking.
Planned for introduction in 2012 are the launches of models with a scissor lift function, raising the operator platform up to 1500mm, and independent forklift function.
