Yale releases new mid-range counter-balance truck which is designed to offer affordable productivity.

Yale Europe Materials Handling has launched a brand new ICE counter-balance truck offering businesses a solution which has the high quality and reliability expected from Yale while being affordable.

The MX series is tailored to businesses with a variety of materials handling workloads and is initially available in 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0 tonne capacities.

Yale product manager for counterbalance trucks, Karen Calver, says: “This is a brand new truck designed with tried and tested Yale technology.

“In the MX series we have assembled a solution which offers all of the high standards associated with the Yale brand. Dependability, serviceability, ergonomics, productivity and low cost of ownership are not simply on our wish list, they are the principles that define a Yale product to its core – and we are excited that the MX series comfortably meets all these criteria.”

The new MX series will be manufactured in Craigavon, Northern Ireland by an experienced team of staff who have recently built their 400,000th forklift.

The MX series will be produced to the same high level of quality compliance with proven Yale components. The feature set is focused on providing core functionality for materials handling applications without the complexity and cost associated with the premium offering.

“The affordability of a truck throughout its lifetime is extremely important in this very competitive sector,” adds Karen, “and that is where we believe the MX series comes into its own.

“Downtime is kept to a minimum through experienced dealer support, warranty options and comprehensive parts availability. Add to that affordable acquisition price and easy maintenance of its proven components and this functional machine is likely to be the go-to truck of choice for a variety of customer applications.”

The MX series follows the same design language as the Yale Veracitor VX series, which is the premium product in the Yale range. It is available in diesel, LPG, and dual-fuel configurations, with service intervals of 500 hours and the full back-up of Yale and its extensive dealer network.

Economical to run, the MX series has a full suite of modern ergonomic features with driver comfort at the forefront of design and excellent noise and vibration performance. It is responsive and highly productive, bringing affordable productivity to a wider range of customers.
