Yale adds to MO series Masate, Italy Yale Europe Materials Handling has introduced a fourth model to its MO series of low-level order pickers, claiming the new scissor lift model offers operators picking and economic advantages. The scissor mechanism on the MO20P will "help reduce fatigue for operators who are picking heavy or bulky case picks at heights up to 690 mm". Operators handling double euro pallets will also benefit through the reduction of constant bending and stretching. Product manager Gianbattista Scaramuzza says: "With the addition of the scissor lift model, we can truly say that the MO series covers practically every eventuality in the world of low-level order picking."

The company says the LO2.5 truck features "numerous operator compartment and platform advantages for efficiency and ergonomic benefits". The control handle "reduces the arm movement needed to change directions, helping to reduce fatigue, increase productivity and allowing the operator to remain inside the truck footprint for protection".
