Yale Europe develops driving lights
Fleet, United Kingdom

Yale Europe Materials Handling has responded to feedback from forklift operators by developing mast-mounted LED driving lights for its counterbalance truck series.
"Recent advances in lighting have allowed us to introduce the latest LED lights on the mast, providing operators with significantly improved forward illumination, and the elimination of the majority of mast shadow," says brand manager Steve Ridgeway.
The lights aid operators that work in light-deprived areas like ISO containers or block-stacking applications.
