Yale Prioritizes Warehouse Productivity with Closed End Jumper Technology Updates

GREENVILLE, NC (March 24, 2022) – Yale Materials Handling Corporation announces key technology updates to its closed end rider, designed to support ergonomics and sustainable productivity in demanding, high-pressure warehouse environments. debit. An advanced operator sensing system and multi-function control handle add to the proven closed-end operator combination of high load capacity, long, heavy-duty forks and ergonomic features.

“Demand is higher, margins are thinner, and that forces warehousing operations to look to get the most out of their equipment,” says Brad Long, brand manager, Yale Materials Handling Corporation. “The Closed End Rider is designed to give more – increased productivity, comfort and value – to help make the most of scarce labor resources in the face of record volumes.”

The Yale® MPR080-MPR100VG Closed End Rider is designed to move more pallets, more efficiently. While competitive models reach a maximum capacity of 8,000 pounds, the MPR100VG’s 10,000-pound capacity allows it to move up to 25% more product in one cycle. Longer and stronger forks, 192 inches compared to a maximum of 144 inches on competitive models, allow the transport of five single pallets or 10 double pallets, increasing throughput by up to 20%.

The operator sensing system, now standard on the enclosed driver, made its debut on Yale’s award-winning reach truck. To keep operators working efficiently, it uses optical sensors to detect the operator’s presence, allowing them to adjust position for comfort, rather than requiring them to stand in the same position on a foot pedal throughout. of the shift.

An offset main drive unit gives operators more foot room and a roomier compartment, while the suspended floor system with rubber isolators helps reduce shock for a smoother ride. The multi-function control handle includes an adjustable armrest to further assist employees in finding the most suitable operating position.

To help protect tight margins and keep operating costs low, the closed end rider prioritizes ease of maintenance. Technicians do not need to lift the cart to access the drive wheel, and access to the traction controller, drive motor and hydraulics is through an easy access door – no tools required.
