The company conducts numerous controlled field tests and reliability development so as to make certain that their products are really safe.
Some of Yale's innovative designs and technology which has been integrated as standard features for their fleet in order to improve overall safety include the following:
Operator Compartment Controls and Ergonomics
The operator compartment has been engineered with ergonomics in mind, utilizing state-of-the-art technology. These designs help to guarantee that the operator avoids fatigue as well as heavy repetitive motions. These added comforts help to increase overall productivity.
Adjustable Operators Compartment and Controls
Having adjustable operator's controls and compartments allows the necessary controls to be able to be positioned near a wide array of operators. This helps make the equipment user friendly, regardless of who is utilizing it. Before starting their shift, the operator can make sure she or he is as comfortable as he or she could be.
Operator Presence System
Yale's hydraulic system operation referred to as the Operator Presence System prevents the operation of the machine if the operator is not in the right operating position. This presence system additionally disables directional travel on trucks that have IC engines.
Swing-Out LPG Tank Bracket
The drop-down design brings the liquid propane gas tank out from the protected center of the truck and down to the operator's natural handling position making the tank easier to change.
